Study the sea in Germany


The Department of Seafaring and Maritime Sciences at Emden/Leer University wants to become more internationally oriented. To this end, the Bachelor’s degree program “Nautical Engineering and Maritime Transport” will also be offered in English at the Maritime Campus in Leer from the summer semester of 2024, which begins in March. Anyone interested can now apply for the new field of study at .

Requirements are a university entrance qualification and a medically certified fitness for sea service.

The dean of the Department of Shipping and Maritime Sciences, Prof. Dr. Marcus Bentin, about the expansion of the range of courses: “By offering the ‘Nautical and Maritime Transport’ course of study in English, we are sending a clear signal for the internationality of our university.

Our students not only receive in-depth knowledge that will enable them to sail ships of all sizes in their future career as captains, but we also encourage them to move safely in globally networked shipping and strive for international careers. Our students come from all over the world, which enriches everyday life on our campus while reflecting the reality of international shipping.”

On the campus, which is steeped in tradition in the heart of the East Frisian seaport town of Leer, you will find the most modern laboratories; essential maritime topics from the shiphandling simulator to ocean engineering are covered extensively.

Appointed by the Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture, ten full professors teach and carry out research on the campus in the Bergmannstrasse. These are supported by about 20 specialist subject teachers, teachers on special assignment, research assistants, along with administrative employees from the library, management and technology departments.
