More specifically, upon completion of the program graduates will be able to:

*   identify and solve problems in maritime operations and related fields using broad-based knowledge of the fundamental principles within their chosen specialisation, their critical thinking skills, and state-of-the-art tools and technologies;

*   critically analyse and evaluate developments and issues that emerge in the field of maritime

operations;

*   be able to function autonomously as well as an effective member of a management team and have the ability to adapt to the changing technical and operational needs of the global shipping industry; and

*   pursue lifelong learning and continuing professional development as they progress in their

chosen career.
