To become a first officer you have to take an exam with the Captain's Office, after 12 months as a student. Not having done the nautical secondary school, you must first take the alignment course.

The Bachelor degree in Maritime Science and Technology:

  • cannot at the moment formally replace the alignment course
  • prepares you to take the exams for the level of officer and executive officer, but you cannot substitute for the exams in the Harbour Office
  • prepares you from a business point of view for the maritime transport sector

The Maritime Science and Technology program provides a Bachelor degree that contains all STCW subjects for Officers and many other subjects. However, it is not yes satisfied as STCW program by the Italian Maritime Authority.
