FAQ

To become an officer, you have to take an examination at the harbourmaster's office after 12 months at sea. If you are not a graduate of the nautical institute, you must first take the alignment course or obtain your nautical diploma privately.

The degree course in Maritime Science and Technology:

  • cannot currently formally replace the nautical diploma or alignment course
  • .
  • prepares for examinations for the rank of officer and executive, but cannot replace examinations in the Harbour Master
  • prepares from a commercial point of view for the shipping industry

The Maritime Science and Technology programme provides a three-year degree that contains all STCW subjects for officers and many other subjects. However, it is not recognised as an STCW programme by the Italian Maritime Authority.

By Italian law, the navigation licence can only be issued to Italian citizens who have obtained a nautical diploma (even as a second diploma).

If you are not an Italian citizen, ask the Maritime Authority in your country if it recognises our programme as valid for the licence.
