TUDEV Institute of Maritime Studies has been established by our foundation in 1995 in Sisli/Istanbul where OOW/EOW (Officer of the Watch/Engineer of the Watch) trainings has started. After the construction of the new campus building in Tuzla, the Institute has moved to its new campus and continued to provide training until 2012.
During this period, a total of 2034 students have graduated as OOW or EOW. Additionally, 4662 seafarers (both officers and ratings) have been trained by short courses and certified accordingly.
Furthermore, TUDEV Institute of Maritime Studies has made an agreement with BTEC (Business and Technology Education Council) in order to improve the quality of trainings, enable graduates to sit for MCA (Maritime Coastguard Agency) exam in the UK to get British CoC, enable graduates to enroll in the last year of a university in the UK to get Bachelor (BSc) degree title.
