European certificates awarded to our university

On September 23, 2022, the Maritime University of Szczecin received EUR-ACE® Label European quality certificates for the following programmes:

  • mechatronics (as 1 of 3 universities in Poland)
  • transport (as 1 of 7 universities in Poland)
  • management and production engineering (as 1 of 4 universities in Poland)
Let us remind you that the accreditations for the above-mentioned fields of study were awarded by the Accreditation Commission of Universities of Technology as early as March 2022, but only now the relevant certificates have been handed over to university representatives. This is great news for both students, who get a guarantee of the highest quality of education, and graduates, who can now receive a European engineering degree.

Solidarity with Ukraine Fund

The Maritime University of Szczecin has established a special fund called "Solidarity with Ukraine" which gives Ukrainian students the opportunity to receive special allowances.

The fund was established on March 24, 2022 to support students of the Maritime University of Szczecin from war-torn Ukraine. The collected funds will be transferred to students who, as a result of the war, found themselves in a difficult financial situation (e.g. loss of income, housing, death of parents). They will be able to receive a maximum of PLN 2,000 (about EUR 420) per year, and in special cases even PLN 4,000 (about EUR 840) per year. The amount of the granted support will be considered individually depending on the situation of a given student. The support received is exempt from personal income tax

The fund is powered by contributions from donors: natural persons, companies and other institutions and entities. Anyone can donate any amount for this purpose. Every, even the smallest amount matters. We count especially on university employees, our students from Poland, residents of Szczecin, regional companies, maritime universities and people of the sea from around the world, and all people of good will.

The proposed form of aid is of a long-term nature. All donors can be sure that the donated money will only go to students who have suffered as a result of the war in Ukraine.

It is worth underlining that 187 people from Ukraine study at our university, including 18 underage students.

Payments to the fund are accepted on the account:

  • Account owner / recipient: Akademia Morska w Szczecinie (Maritime University of Szczecin)
  • Address - first line: ul. Wały Chrobrego 1-2
  • Address - second line: 70-500 Szczecin, Polska (Poland)
  • Name of the bank: Bank Pekao SA VII O/Szczecin
  • Bank account number: 91 1240 6292 1111 0011 1247 3919
  • IBAN: PL 91 1240 6292 1111 0011 1247 3919
  • Transfer title, Solidarity with Ukraine

You can also donate online through our fundraiser on the website pomagam.pl. What is important, pomagam.pl charges no fees on this fundraiser. 100% of all donations are forwarded to our students.

Originally our goal was to collect minimum of PLN 200,000 until September 30, 2022. However, in the first round, only 24 eligible students applied for a special allowance. So, to pay everyone an average of PLN 2,000, we need to collect PLN 48,000. PLN (rounded off PLN 50,000). Therefore we changed the goal of our fundraising campaign to adapt it to the real needs of our students. We will keep you updated on the fundraising progress (at least once a week).

    A new educational project at the Maritime University of Szczecin - SMARTSEA

    The Maritime University of Szczecin has received funding from the ERASMUS program for the SMARTSEA project, which it will carry out in cooperation with 10 European partners for the next 3 years.

    Project aims

    The Surveying & MARiTime internet of thingS EducAtion (SMARTSEA) project aims to develop an advanced interactive certified MSc course related to Maritime & Surveyor IoT applications that will train individuals with the necessary skills & knowledge to work in the rising “Smart Maritime & Surveying” industry. The course is also formulated to stimulate transversal competences such as the increased sense of initiative & entrepreneurship. The course is designed to follow the European Credit Transfer & Accumulation System (ECTS) credit standards for certification recognition across the EU.

    The innovative curriculum comprises of interactive teaching methods & partnerships with expert academic & maritime organizations in order to give to the students a solid background for starting a fruitful career in the industry. The course duration is 8 months, plus a 1-month maritime (on the job) experience, a month after the end of the teaching period. During the execution of the course, 3 mobility periods are programmed. For the first two (14-day) periods the students & educators from one university will travel to the other and vice-versa, to participate in the large-scale laboratories, whereas the 3rd period (1 month) is reserved for the maritime on-the-job training.

    Although the course will be taught in English, local language lessons will be provided to enable the participants to immerge in the local culture during the exchange periods. The course will be open for participation for anyone with a basic marine, electrical or mechanical technical background. Priority will be given according to their academic performance. In the case of equivalent academic level, participants from less advantaged socio-economic backgrounds (including refugees, asylum seekers & migrants) will be preferred. .

    Participation of the Maritime University of Szczecin

    The activities of Maritime University of Szczecin are strongly connected with the project. The University has many years of experience in training and certification of seafarers in the field of navigation, ship operation and the use of navigation devices.

    The Maritime University has many simulators to train sailors, such as manoeuvring simulator, ARPA simulator, LNG ship simulator, simulator to model oil spills. The Maritime University also conducts ECDIS trainings. MUS also has its own training ship, where seagoing practices are held both for navigators and mechanics.

    Maritime University of Szczecin will participate in curriculum design, preparation of teaching materials, and development of configurable training sets for laboratories. They will be responsible for the operational organisation of the student mobility project and for the accommodation of students during their summer internships in Poland.

    The main reason for the project

    The Internet of Things (IoT) is a network of physical “smart” devices (applicable in vessels, vehicles, buildings, factories etc) embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, that allow interconnectivity between these devices & data exchange. Over the past 5 years this new technology has grown rapidly and has found applications ranging from people whose devices monitor health and wellness to manufacturers that utilize sensors to optimize the maintenance of equipment and protect the safety of workers.

    It is expected that by 2025, IoT may reach a total potential market impact of up to $11.1 trillion. Large shipping corporations are already investing heavily in enabling IoT technology solutions in their fleet to improve transparency, safety, and cost efficiency by optimising procedures, maintenance & energy efficiency. Shipowners are set to spend an average of $2.5m, each, on Internet of Things (IoT) solutions over the next three years. In addition, the marine surveying infrastructure transformation through IoT technologies is expected to enable the shipping industry, port authorities or environmental agencies, to inspect shipping assets, offshore structures, waterways & ensure compliance with various standards or specifications. In contrast, formal Maritime & Surveying IoT training on development, installation, service, maintenance & sustainability awareness is at its infancy, especially in the European Union.

    Film about Maritime University

    We invite you to watch a short promotional film about our Maritime University addressed to foreign students. The film was created in collaboration with students, who starred in the film as actors. During filming, we had a lot of fun and we all enjoyed it very much. We have tried to make it interesting, so you will find there among others, underwater scenes, shots made from a drone and “special effects” in one of our lab (Marine Traffic Engineering Centre) where we even managed to make wind and rain. There were also unexpected moments such as “a breakdown” of one of the sailboats, which eventually drifted into the reeds and its crew had to be rescued (and therefore in the film instead of two sailboats there is only one). Several scenes, however, turned out quite well.

    We would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who helped us in this project. Thanks to you we were able to take shots at several laboratories, on the ship, at the shooting range, gym and swimming pool. We are also grateful to the University Choir, which appeared in one of the scenes.

    The film was prepared and produced on initiative of International Students & Mobility Office. If you want to see it, please click on the photo below. We hope you will have a good time!

Numerous sports sections and student initiatives will also allow for pleasant spending free time and getting a chance to meet many interesting people. The Maritime University is a good step through which candidate can combine passions with future professional life.

    The first contract with a recruitment agency in Ukraine

    On the 6th of September 2016 the Maritime University of Szczecin signed the first agreement with a recruitment agency, i.e. "The Consulting Company TerAssa" represented by Ms. Natalia Terekhova, which recruits students from Ukraine.

    Currently, any international student who wants to study at the Maritime University of Szczecin can choose to prepare the required application documents by himself / herself, using the instructions available at the tab Applying STEP BY STEP, or to use the services of an agent.

    The Agent with whom the University has signed the agreement, is, inter alia, obliged to inform potential candidates about the offer of the Maritime University, verify whether a candidate’s documentation is authentic, adequate and submit complete application package to our Office no later than by the end of the admissions period. Nonetheless, please remember that all candidates are treated equally in the selection process, regardless of whether they applied by themselves or through an agent.
