Graduation class 2019-2020

After an extremely eventful academic year 2019-2020, our MSc in Maritime Science students had a graduation never to forget.

Unfortunately, we could not offer them a nice reception with family and friends. No pictures of proud students and professors in togas were taken. Nevertheless, we wholeheartedly congratulate class 2019-2020 for the achievement in these incredibly trying covid-19 times.

As a token of appreciation, Ghent University projected all the names of the graduating students on the iconic library tower. We checked, and yes, we spotted many of our maritime students. Well done to all of you!!!

UITGESTELD: Maritiem Symposium 20/05/2020

24ste Maritiem Symposium: De impact van geopolitieke ontwikkelingen op scheepvaart en havens

Ten gevolge van de maatregelen n.a.v. de corona crisis, wordt het Maritiem Symposium uitgesteld naar mei 2022.

Het lijkt soms of het tijdperk van de voortschrijdende globalisering van de economie stilaan voorbij is. Waar de deur gisteren wijd open stond (al was dat soms vooral in één richting), gaat ze steeds vaker op een minder brede kier staan. De vraag rijst of de wereldhandel aan een herijking toe is. Voor havens en scheepvaart, die de doorgeefluiken van die wereldhandel zijn, kan dat verregaande gevolgen hebben.

Dit Maritiem Symposium van het Maritiem Instituut van de Universiteit Gent buigt zich over dit thema. In een nieuwe, halfdaagse formule belichten zes sprekers vanuit hun achtergrond de nieuwe uitdaging waar de maritieme wereld voor staat.

Een update van het programma met praktische informatie vindt u hier.
