organisation profile

The Antwerp Maritime Academy is the only college in Belgium to offer education in Nautical Sciences and Marine Engineering. Courses are taught both in Dutch and French. The Nautical Sciences training consists of two cycles: - at the end of the first three-year cycle, one can obtain a Bachelor’s Degree in Nautical Sciences; - at the end of the second cycle of one year, one can obtain a Master’s Degree in Nautical Sciences. The Marine Engineering training consists of a three-year cycle after which you obtain a Bachelor's Degree in Marine Engineering. Education at the Antwerp Maritime Academy aims at two careers: one at sea as a merchant marine officer, becoming a long-distance Captain or a Chief Engineer; the other is an on-shore career in a nautical-economic or nautical-technical function. While other colleges only have to comply within legal regulations at the national level, the courses taught at the Antwerp Maritime Academy meet stringent international and quality-standard requirements set by the IMO (International Maritime Organisation). Certificates from the Antwerp Maritime Academy are fully compliant with IMO STCW-standards (Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping). In Nautical Sciences the STCW Operational Level is obtained at the completion of the bachelor cycle, while the STCW Management Level is a modular part of the master cycle. In Marine Engineering the STCW Management Level is already reached within the bachelor cycle. An exciting and rewarding career at sea is a real perspective for all the graduates of the Antwerp Maritime Academy!
