We are delighted to offer an exciting new short course, Protecting the Marine Environment.  This module is a “sustainable” professional development programme that assists your next crucial step in developing an ESG strategy.

With over 11 hours of Postgraduate level lectures, introduced by World-leading expert Professor Steve Fletcher, you will explore topics including drivers of ocean change; global conventions and action plans; marine protected areas; and the sustainable blue economy.

Delivered via MLA College’s award winning app, this distance learning course allows you to explore the key topics and fundamental principles of marine environmental protection.

The course costs £875, and is available to purchase via our website.

As part of a continued process for us to ensure that we are improving as a college, and to ensure that we provide our students with the highest quality education we possibly can, we regularly ask our students for feedback during their studies. This feedback is vital to us; it allows us to improve where we need to improve, and gives us the chance to monitor the things we do well to help ensure they stay that way.

Our students told us that they wanted to see the data that we collect, and that they want to see what we are doing to address their feedback. We understand that statistics are not always easily accessible, and can appear extremely dry. To address this, we are committed to producing infographics that detail the data in a clear and easily manageable way, as well as producing a ‘You said, we did’ graphic that shows exactly how we are addressing the feedback. These documents will be created every six months and will allow everyone to see exactly what we are doing to ensure that we maintain our high quality standards.

The first of these documents can be found on our website, along with student testimonials.

The 15th International Naval Engineering Conference (INEC) incorporating the International Ship Control Systems Symposium (iSCSS): Disrupting Technologies takes place this year between 5th and 9th October.

INEC aims to address issues facing existing, upcoming and future naval projects such as the challenges of evolving threats, growing environmental concerns, availability of skilled personnel, fiscal constraints and game-changing technologies.

The event aims to stimulate researchers, engineers, seafarers and students to present their perspectives on inspiring innovation across the naval and wider maritime domain as well as those sectors which could influence future advances and benefit the maritime industry.  More information about the event is available here.

Members of the IMarEST can attend as a virtual delegate for free.
