The shipping industry is living in an environment with large and sometimes rapid changes. Shipping companies with the ambition to keep or strengthen their market position need to adapt to these changes. A powerful way to prepare individuals and organizations for this is extensive education and competence development. The business area Shipping within Chalmers Professional Education AB is providing open programs as well as tailor-made corporate solutions. The majority of clients come from shipowner company.
Most of the teachers in our programs come from Chalmers Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences where they train and educate students to become master mariners, ship engineers, ship designers and shipping administrators. Many of our courses are practice-oriented and conducted in modern simulations. We also have large network of specialists and experts within a broad range of topics. For example, we have for many years collaborated with Fire Brigade in Gothenburg.
The Department of Mechanics and Maritime Sciences is working under one of Swedish Maritime Administration approved quality systems. This is mandatory for conducting STCW-related education.
