MARINE EDUCATION & ACADEMIA
The 2019 Marine Education track will highlight innovative education and training programs that are helping to prepare students of all ages for the marine industry. From formal degree and certificate programs to entrepreneurial opportunities where students are at the forefront, these programs represent best practices in marine technology education. Both the faculty and educators who worked with industry leaders to develop these programs as well as the students who benefit from them will be part of UI. The track will also include student research and engineering projects as well as the creative offerings of informal education programs. Presentations will also include information about the Marine Technology Society’s plethora of student opportunities and programs, from scholarships to summer marine technology camps, all of which help to further engage and support the future generation of marine professionals.
