Maritime Academy

The Metropolitan College’s Maritime Academy programmes of study are offered in collaboration with the renowned Warsash School of Maritime Science and Engineering of Solent University in Southampton, UK, an educational institution which has over 70 years of history. These programmes aim to create highly-skilled Merchant Deck Officers, able to respond to current industry demands and challenges.

Why choose the BSc (Hons) Marine Operations Management:

  • The Metropolitan College Maritime education programmes are offered in partnership with the renowned Warsash Maritime Academy, which is part of Solent University in Southampton, UK.
  • The programmes focus on developing both comprehensive knowledge, but also the quality of character and interpersonal skills necessary to meet up with effectiveness to the standards of their profession.
  • Deck Officers programmes consist of 6 successive training phases, alternating between time spent at college and time spent at sea. The 5th phase of the programme includes a 6-week training period, during which students will visit the Warsash Maritime Academy in Southampton, in order to undergo specialized training and participate in examinations at the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), which issues the relevant Certificate of Competency.
  • Whether on cargo or passenger ships, on tankers, containerships or bulk carriers, Deck Officers experience a career full of challenges and they are active members of one of the most thriving industries in the world.

Description

Under the Master’s command, the Deck department is responsible for safe ship navigation and operation. Deck Officers are the main members of the ship management team, undertaking different roles (depending on their rank), including shifts, route planning, safe navigation, cargo loading, stability, communication and deck equipment. The captain carries full command and ultimate responsibility for crew, vessel, cargo safety as well as environmental protection.

The BSc (Hons) Marine Operations Management programme has been designed in order to cover the entire scope of necessary Maritime Science knowledge: ship navigation and handling, safe ship operation and management etc, so that graduates may be able to efficiently and successfully respond to all those multiple tasks assigned on board. Students graduate with the Officer of the Watch (3rd Officer) rank and they may immediately pursue a career at sea as well as a career on land later on, given that the maritime industry offers numerous opportunities for those who have successfully proven their worth on board.

Description

Under the Engine Officers command, the Engine department is responsible for the safety, performance and efficiency of the vessel’s machinery. Engineer officers are responsible for the maintenance and operation of all mechanical and electrical installations of the ship. Moreover, a major aspect of their duties involves the immediate and effective problem solving related to the mechanical and electrical equipment of the vessel.

The BEng (Hons) Marine Engineering & Management programme has been designed to cover the entire scope of Marine Engineering: mechanical and electrical systems, thermodynamics, mechanics etc, so that graduates may be able to efficiently respond to the duties assigned to them on board. Young engineers are usually employed on board as 3rd Engineer Officers, undertaking ship duties and, as their skills and experience develop, they progress as officers, thus achieving the Engine Officer’s rank. There are considerable opportunities for engineers on land as well, and Engine Officers usually become Engine Officers in the company offices or they take over the management of the Technical Department.

Φάσεις προγράμματος

Φάση 1:

Η κατάρτιση ξεκινά από το Κολλέγιο και έχει σχεδιαστεί για να παρέχει στους φοιτητές τις απαραίτητες δεξιότητες και το ακαδημαϊκό υπόβαθρο που απαιτούνται για την επαγγελματική πιστοποίηση από την MCA και για να λειτουργούν με ασφάλεια στη θάλασσα.

Οι φοιτητές παρακολουθούν επίσης σύντομα προγράμματα ασφάλειας και πρώτων βοηθειών που απαιτούνται από τη διεθνή σύμβαση STCW.

Φάση 2:

Η εκπαίδευση λαμβάνει χώρα στη θάλασσα, με τους σπουδαστές να αποκτούν πρακτική εμπειρία στο πλοίο. Οι φοιτητές εργάζονται υπό την επίβλεψη ειδικευμένων αξιωματικών, αναπτύσσοντας πρακτικές δεξιότητες πλοήγησης και λειτουργιών πλοίου.

Φάση 3:

Η εκπαίδευση εναλλάσσεται μεταξύ σπουδών στο Κολλέγιο και εξειδικευμένων σύντομων προγραμμάτων, καθώς και πρακτικής στη θάλασσα για επαγγελματική ανάπτυξη.

Μεγαλύτερες ευθύνες ανατίθενται καθώς προχωράει η κατάρτιση. Η πέμπτη φάση περιλαμβάνει τις τελικές εξετάσεις και αξιολογήσεις που απαιτούνται για τη ολοκλήρωση της εκπαίδευσης και τη χορήγηση του αποδεικτικού ναυτικής ικανότητας που απονέμεται απευθείας από τη Βρετανική Ακτοφυλακή.

Είναι σημαντικό να σημειωθεί ότι, κατά τη φάση 5, οι φοιτητές του Μητροπολιτικού Κολλεγίου θα έχουν τη μοναδική ευκαιρία να περάσουν μέρος της εκπαίδευσής τους (8 εβδομάδες) στην ίδια την Ακαδημία Warsash.

Φάση 4:

Η φάση 6 απευθύνεται σε φοιτητές που έχουν ήδη στην κατοχή τους το Αποδεικτικό Ναυτικής Ικανότητας και παρέχει τις απαραίτητες γνώσεις και δεξιότητες προκειμένου να ανταποκριθούν επαρκώς σε διάφορες ευκαιρίες σταδιοδρομίας, τόσο στη θάλασσα όσο και στην ξηρά. Αυτή η φάση παρέχεται με τη μέθοδο της μεικτής εκπαίδευσης: οι φοιτητές ξεκινούν την εκπαίδευσή τους παρακολουθώντας 15 εβδομάδες μαθημάτων στο Μητροπολιτικό Κολλέγιο και στη συνέχεια τους δίνεται η δυνατότητα να ολοκληρώσουν το πρόγραμμα εξ αποστάσεως εντός 12 μηνών.

Κατά τη διάρκεια αυτής της περιόδου, οι φοιτητές υποστηρίζονται από τους επιβλέποντες και την ομάδα καθηγητών. Η προσέγγιση αυτή παρέχει ένα ευέλικτο, υποστηρικτικό και δομημένο πρόγραμμα σπουδών που επιτρέπει στους αξιωματικούς των πλοίων να αποκτήσουν ένα επιπλέον ακαδημαϊκό προσόν παράλληλα με το επαγγελματικό αποδεικτικό ναυτικής ικανότητας.
