Engineering Bridging Course

Fast Track your Career

The maritime industry is crying out for young professional marine engineers to help manage the maintenance and operation of modern vessels, equipped with increasingly more complex and sophisticated systems. The traditional route to a life at sea is our 4.5-year engineering cadetship, however, by holding a Mechanical Engineering Degree, you’re already halfway there!

How does it work?

Through the IMEC bridging course you could obtain your marine engineer’s licence in less than 2 years, and soon be on your way to servicing and operating some of the largest man-made floating structures in the world.

IMEC provides support and training in partnership with the Maritime Academy of Asia and the Pacific (MAAP), to ensure that you have all the additional skills and competencies to become a marine engineer, and all offered as a fully paid scholarship.

The course is offered in two stages:

Stage 1 – Completing 10 months of marine based training at the Maritime Academy of Asia and the Pacific (MAAP)

Stage 2 – On-board ship training period, minimum of 12-months sea time.

All accommodation, materials and food are included throughout your training and you will receive a monthly stipend whilst at sea.

After graduation, each IMEC candidate will be given the opportunity to return to their sponsors for potential employment.
