A few weeks ago students of the Msc on Smart Maritime & Surveying Systems from the SMARTSEA project completed an important stage in their professional development at the graduation of the first ever master’s degree in the smart maritime sector.
The International Hellenic University (Greece) has been the meeting place for the 20 graduates who, during one academic year, have been trained in technologies such as the Internet of Things, Blockchain or Artificial Intelligence and in their application in maritime projects and solutions.
Juan Manuel Corchado, director of the BISITE group and the project’s coordinator, participated in the graduation to summarise the objectives achieved and congratulate the graduates.
The occasion also served as a meeting for the project partners. Representatives of the BISITE Research Group from the University of Salamanca, University of Ljubljana, International Hellenic University, Maritime University of Szczecin, Tallinn University of Technology, Escola Superior Náutica Infante D. Henrique, a research centre (National Institute of Marine Research and Development Grigore Antipa), SMEs: Cerca Trova Ltd, ECQA GmbH and three environmental and shipping survey companies: Creocean, RINA Hellas SA, Danaos Shipping Company Ltd.
We appreciate the involvement of all partners over the course of the development of the whole project and hope that it has been of great value to the students.
