#NMCIopenDay - The National Maritime College of Ireland (NMCI) is set to open it’s doors to the public for the annual College Open Day on October 22nd. The college located at Ringaskiddy in lower Cork Harbour will be open between 10:00 and 15:00.
The Open Day is for all from transition year students, to leaving certificate students, teachers and parents. The college will welcome members of the public to have an opportunity to tour the state of the art facilities at NMCI, a $100million dollar facility.
Degree courses are on offer at the NMCI. They are a B.Eng. in Marine Electrotechnology, B.Eng. in Marine Engineering or a B.Sc in Nautical Science. So should they peak your interest you will have an opportunity to find out about each of the courses.
A recent study by Drewry estimates the current officer supply to be 610,000, representing a shortfall of 19,000 personnel. This shortfall is forecast to rise to 21,700 by 2018 given that there will be a requirement for an additional 38,500 officers by this time.
As there is a placement element amongst these courses, NMCI have partnered with key industry leaders to give students seagoing time. A number of our industry partners will also be present on October 22nd to discuss employment opportunities with students.
