The Nautical Science program at CyMA aims in training Officers on merchant ships, based on the standards of the STCW International Convention (Standards of Training, Certification, and Watchkeeping for Seafarers).
Cyprus is one of the largest ship-management centers in Europe and worldwide. More than 200 ship-owing, ship–managing, and shipping–related companies are based in Cyprus providing excellent growth prospects and business opportunities in the shipping sector. The continuing growth of the shipping sector resulted in the need for specialized staff, with proper academic and technical skills, ready to take over the challenging positions within the Maritime industry.
The Cyprus Maritime Academy in collaboration with Intercollege and under the auspices of the University of Nicosia offers Maritime programs designed to provide the necessary academic knowledge, professional skills, and competencies to Deck and Engine Officers who wish to pursue a career in merchant marine ships.
