Who is it for?

The course is designed for people who wish to make a career in the marine and offshore industries and who have either developed some experience in industry, maritime or otherwise, or have a sound academic basis or skills upon which to build.

During the course, in addition to gaining an understanding of the underlying principles upon which the industry is based, students will also gain confidence in the interpersonal and international cultural skills which are essential to senior roles in the maritime industries.

Objectives

The Maritime Operations and Management course is designed for existing professionals serving in the industry as well as those looking for a career within the maritime, offshore and sea transport industries. For those already within the industry applicants are likely to have a responsible sea-going or middle-management position. Alternatively, new entrants to the industry are likely to have attained a first degree in a related technical or management subject.

This modular course is focused towards giving students the necessary knowledge and skills to help them achieve high levels of attainment in their careers in the maritime and offshore industries. Indeed, many former students on this course have now reached board level appointments in their various companies.

The course takes place in Piraeus, Greece, offering the experience of studying at the esteemed Hellenic Lloyd's Register. You will have access to our online resources as well as the prestigious Kaiti Laskaridis Library collection during your study.

Accreditation

The course is accredited by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology as meeting their requirements for chartered marine technologist.  Additionally, successful completion of the course gives the maximum number of exemptions from the examinations of the Chartered Institute of Shipbrokers.

Teaching and learning

The course is taught by some 12 lecturers who come from academia and industry. These are supported by guest lecturers drawn from various parts of the marine industry.

Assessment

Each subject has coursework associated with it and this normally comprises two essays which probe the student's abilities for critical analysis. Examinations are held twice per year with 3 subjects examined in the spring and the remainder in autumn. To pass the student must gain 50% in each of the coursework and examination elements.

The project is a major piece of work which results in a dissertation on a chosen subject. This is examined by the dissertation content and viva-voce examination.

Modules

The Maritime Operations and Management course is an identical option of the long standing course taught in London. The courses are taught in two geographical locations, London and Piraeus by the same lecturers and adhere to the same syllabus and are overseen by the same External Examiner. Contact hours in Piraeus are the same as in London.

The course comprises eight taught modules: six compulsory and two elective to suit the student’s needs and future career aspirations. Outside of the block taught module students are expected to read around the subjects developed in the lectures, undertake coursework and prepare for examinations in the compulsory subjects.

This 18 month course is taught at weekends (spaced out during the period of the course) to enable students to meet employment or other commitments.

Completion of modules and examinations will lead to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma. Alternatively, if in addition, a project followed by a dissertation is undertaken by a student, this will lead to the award of a Master’s degree.

Core modules are all taught in Greece. With regards to the elective modules, two are offered in Piraeus to enable the course to be wholly completed in Greece. These electives are Marketing of Marine Services and Risk Management. However, if a student prefers any of the other elective modules, they can be taken but that would require attendance in London.
