In the last years Lighthouse has developed a strong partnership with the University of Genoa to enhance the Master Course Marine Geomatics and Applied Technologies To Marine Environment. The Second Level Postgraduate Master Course, now at its 7th edition, aims at providing students with both theoretical and practical knowledge in the field of Marine Geomatics. 15 months long, the formative program offers three different specializations: Hydrography for Nautical Cartography, Hydrography for Coasts and Ports Management & Remote Sensing.
The Master, borne out by the University of Genoa in collaboration with the Italian Navy Hydrographic Institute, is designed for University Graduates with a specialistic degree in scientific disciplines, as well as Navy Officers from Italy and abroad. The Master can be attended also by University Graduates holding a specialistic degree in other disciplines, as long as in possession of the necessary requisites of competence and professional experience.
The employment opportunities offered by the Master regard Companies operating in the fields of marine resources, coastal, port and maritime works, underwater activities (maritime works foundations, conduit and cable laying, dredging), nautical equipment production and nautical charting, Local and Port Authorities, Civil Protection and the Italian Navy Hydrographic Institute. After the Master Course and two years of documented operational work, students can obtain the Category A Hydrographer Qualification, ratified by the International Hydrographic Organization.
The partnership entails Lighthouse to offer internships to the Master Course students, which sometimes result into full employment with our Company. The admission form can be submitted on-line, within 3rd October 2016: Discover the Program!
