Economic Constraints on Maritime Training and Education in Turkey
1 Istanbul Technical University, Istanbul, Turkey
ABSTRACT: The quality improvement of the Turkish Maritime Education and Training (MET) system is a relevant political and scientific issue which strongly impacts the competitiveness of the shipping sector in Turkiye. However, MET is quite an expensive Education and Training (ET) system since it requires high investments and incurs high running costs. The existing situation enforces the training system to be able to execute under the desired level of sector expectations in terms of graduates quantity. This study mainly focuses on the investigation of the economic needs of MET facilities. And some of the relevant recommenda-tions are drawn up to improve the efficiency of current MET system. In this respect, the proposed items basically refer to the need of concentrating and integrating resources in order to exploit some degree of economies and pursuing quality in MET.
