Maritime UK’s Maritime Masters programme is strengthening links between UK industry and academia. The programme promotes academic excellence amongst students and their universities, whilst providing valuable research to support the maritime sector’s work.

Students have adopted research topics proposed by industry as their Masters Dissertation thesis and will have the opportunity to present their findings to industry leaders at this high-level event on completion of their studies. Industry leaders will vote for their winning research, and that student will win a cash prize. Participating students will be able to gain work experience opportunities within industry.

The University courses chosen represent a broad overview of UK academic abilities. The courses identified will range from naval architecture to maritime economics, ship management to shipping law. The research projects, which will be tailored by University academic staff, will be related to contemporary issues concerning the UK maritime sector and its position within the global maritime environment.

Maritime UK's 2018 Annual Review will be launched during the reception.
