Whether nautical, technical, or electrical engineer: Studying with AIDA opens excellent career opportunities to advanced high school graduates. With tailored practical training and maritime studies, we get you fit for your dream job. In partnership with the University of Wismar, we offer an innovative educational concept for three study programs with the Department of Maritime Studies in Warnemünde: Bachelor of Science in Nautical Science/Transport Operations, Marine Electrical Engineering, and Ship Operation Engineering.
To prepare junior officers optimally for their deployment on board, we complement the traditional bachelor’s program at the Department of Maritime Studies in Warnemünde with three additional components: integrated nautical officer cadet training with intensive practical units on board our ships and additional training courses at our AIDA Academy. All students receive a scholarship.
Students complete their first year on board the AIDA fleet as nautical officer assistants. The practical unit starts with two weeks of basic safety training and basic maritime training on board a sail training ship. The students then complete a three-year course of study in partnership with the University of Wismar. The training program is completed after a total of four years with the certification Nautical Watch Officer and Bachelor of Science in Nautical Science / Transport Operations.
