Venue: London, UK
The Education, Training and Continuing Professional Development of Engineers in the Maritime Industry conference is very timely in a world of rapidly changing technology. The education, training and professional development of a modern engineer will start at further or higher educational establishments but must continue throughout the engineer’s professional career. Engineers in the maritime industry are engaged in a wide range of activities, including research and development, design, construction, maintenance and operation, requiring a wide range of skills. Engineers today also require non-engineering skills in management, finance and communications.
This conference will provide an opportunity through presentations and panel discussions to identify the maritime industry’s needs, today and in the future, and to discuss how these might best be met by education and training providers. The conference will also compare the differences in the requirement and delivery of education, training and professional development in different countries, seeking to both learn and benefit from such differences.
