Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The purpose of this study is to highlight the maritime students' views on and visions for their future career. The results will be used by maritime academies, ship owners and unions to develop their activities in the desired direction and work together for a well-functioning labour market in shipping in the future. To determine the students’ views and visions, interviews were conducted with graduating students at the maritime academies in Sweden. The results show that the reduced Swedish merchant fleet worries students, but that the majority is positive about finding a job after graduation. The students intend to work at sea for at least 8 - 10 years and the salary is not considered to be the most important factor when selecting a workplace, many other factors affect. Today the offshore, tank and Ro-Ro/Ro-Pax market are the most attractive segments and the students feel themselves qualified for the job, but they still believe there are parts of the education that should be developed. Based on the results, recommendations are presented to the maritime academies, ship owners and unions to develop their respective business. Recommendations to officers are also presented.
