Maritime Sciences: closer to the big wide world.
Do you have a healthy portion of wanderlust and interest in technology? Then come closer! The world's oceans are the largest trade routes on planet earth and perfectly trained specialists are needed for us to be able to use them even more environmentally friendly and efficiently in future. Regional, national, international. But interesting tasks await our faculty graduates on land too, for example in logistics or shipbuilding. Our highly specialised study programmes prepare you for professions that can take you all over the world. Only a few universities in Germany offer you a comparable curriculum and similar tradition and your place of study Leer is also the second largest German shipping company location with many potential employers!
