As the global maritime industry emerges from the downturn it has been experiencing in recent years, the key to its future success will be innovation in all aspects and sectors of the industry, whether it be in research, design, construction or operations. And in an industry which is technologically led, such innovation will be provided by engineers who have the professional skills to meet the future demands of the industry. Such engineers will need to have achieved the knowledge and understanding which underpins those professional skills while at university, and to have developed them through training and experience after graduation. But what are those skills which the maritime industry of the future requires, how are universities and colleges to
provide the graduates who are able to develop them, and what is the role of industry in enabling those skills to be developed? What are the particular skills required by different sectors of the maritime industry commercial, naval, recreational, offshore, renewable energy? What are the interpersonal skills which engineers of the future will require to complement their technical skills?
This 4th International Conference on the Education and Professional Development of Engineers in the Maritime Industry will build on the success of the previous three conferences in 2011, 2012 and 2013, and again bring together representatives of both industry and academia to present and discuss how those engineers of the future who will be the key to the future success of industry will achieve the knowledge, understanding and professional skills which industry needs, both today and in the future. The conference will compare the differences in the requirement and delivery of education, training and professional development in different sectors of the industry and in different countries, seeking to both learn and benefit from such differences. Given the lead time to provide professional engineers, the conference will seek to identify the changes needed now to provide the engineers of the future.
