The maritime industry is the backbone of modern businesses and is responsible for transporting over 90 per cent of the world goods. Without maritime transport, the import and export of goods and merchandise on the scale necessary for the modern world would not be possible. With the growing efficiency of shipping as an economical mode of transport and increasing trade liberalization, seaborne trade continues to expand and prosper while employing millions of people worldwide on land and sea.
The future of the industry certainly looks promising. On a global scale, countries worldwide are concentrating on international trade activities to spur economic growth. In the next 10 – 15 years, world trade is projected to grow significantly, resulting in a doubling of seaborne trade volumes from 10 billion tonnes of cargo annually today to 20 billion tonnes of cargo around the year 2030. In Malaysia, the growing investment in port and maritime infrastructure are seen as truly positive catalysts that will underpin a strong economic growth and sustainable future for the country. Port Klang and Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP), the leading container ports in the country, continue to rank among the world’s top 20 container ports. In the long-term, the proposed development of the Carey Island Port-Industrial City Project with a capacity of 30 million TEUs (Twenty-Foot Equivalent Unit) will further strengthen the activities of maritime trade and transform Malaysia into a regional maritime centre.
In response to the growing industry and rise in demand for human capital, Netherlands Maritime University College (NMUC) was established in 2011 to undertake maritime education, training, research and consultancy activities. Located right at the heart of ASEAN and at the junction of bustling regional maritime industries, NMUC is strategically positioned to support national and regional competitiveness in the maritime, logistics as well as oil and gas industries through the offering of various accredited academic and training programmes. Driven by our motto, “Excellence with a Purpose”, we strive to offer the students as well as industry people the right skills, ample knowledge and valuable experience that are required for a successful maritime career.
