Maritime UK has launched the second year of its Maritime Masters programme which is designed to bring industry and academia closer together.
Maritime London vice chair and chair of Maritime UK, Harry Theochari said: “Maritime UK is excited to be launching the second year of its Maritime Masters programme. Last year the programme got off to an impressive start, in no small part due to the calibre of our student finalists. Maritime 2050 sets us all a very big challenge, and through initiatives like this, we are responding, with industry and academia working closer than ever. The UK is the world’s maritime centre, and its academic and training assets are second to none. We wish all participants the best of luck!”
Students from participating universities are selected and matched with supporting companies and other industry bodies throughout their studies, before presenting their research to industry leaders at the finalist reception.
Key changes for 2019 include participating universities selecting three students to participate in the programme, allowing more students to benefit from mentoring and access to supporting companies. A single student from each university will be shortlisted and announced during London International Shipping Week. Ambassadors will also visit participating universities to promote the programme and participation in future years as well as discussing their contemporary commercial work with students.
