Project "MARineSIM - Marine Training for Seagoing Courses"
Framework and objective
Currently, there is a great lack of officers for the national and international merchant marine. This situation is reported in several international publications, such as in the 2015 BIMCO / ICS (International Maritime and Baltic Sea Council / International Chamber of Shipping) report, which foresees for 2025 a shortage of 150,000 officers for the merchant marine in Worldwide. As ENIDH's mission is to train graduates for the Merchant Marine, it is its intention to contribute with the supply of qualified professionals for this sector of activity.
As required by the STCW Convention and EMSA, training courses for future Merchant Marine officers require specific and updated simulation equipment to carry out training properly. Marine simulators are extremely important for marine courses and for other short courses, offered to professionals in the maritime sector who need additional requalification / training to work on board.
The acquisition of new marine simulators is crucial, considering that the existing simulation equipment at ENIDH is generally out of date. In addition, the acquisition of new and modern simulation skills will open the School to cooperation with foreign nautical institutions, providing the exchange of teaching experiences, sharing and improving academic programs and the mobility of teachers and students, increasing the degree of connectivity in a richer educational environment. Finally, this path will lead to an institution with better performance, higher quality and more interconnected with similar institutions
The project aims to acquire a set of state-of-the-art marine simulators, which will include:
