DIPLOMA IN MARITIME AND OFFSHORE MANAGEMENT

WHAT IT IS

This one-year programme offered by Singapore Polytechnic seeks to enable students who do not possess maritime qualification to take up a career in the maritime and offshore industry by equipping them with a greater level of understanding in shipping, logistics and offshore operations and management.

The course is divided into two semesters:

  • In Semester 1, students will take 3 modules related to maritime economics and shipbroking, maritime law and insurance as well as cargo management and ship surveying. Completion of this semester will lead to the award of a Modular Certificate (MC), MC 1 in Maritime Business.

  • In Semester 2, students will take 3 other modules related to ship and financial management, maritime and offshore operations, as well as supply chain management. Students will receive their MC 2 Certificate in Maritime and Offshore upon completion of these modules.

Upon acquiring both certificates, the participant will be conferred a Diploma in Maritime and Offshore Management qualification from the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA).

The MPA Maritime Cluster Fund training grant is available for eligible students. For more information, click here.
