Nautical Sciences

Structure study

In the past, all our masters in nautical sciences became captains. That's still the smartest choice after your master's degree – at least for a while. As a captain of thirty years, you run your own company, but at sea, without a helpline. That is a unique experience. No sea legs? Then you don't have to sail. The time of the obligatory 'long circumnavigation' is long gone. And the opportunities for Nautical Scientists ashore are also phenomenal.
