The progression of the marine sector toward digitization and decarbonization over the last several years has caused a gap between curriculum, syllabus, and course content vs industry expectations, which has had a detrimental influence on employability. On 17th of February 2022, IMRC (International Maritime Research Confluence) hosted a panel with Capt Belal Ahmed (Chairman of IMEC, & MD of Western Shipping based in Singapore), Capt Sankalp Shukla (Chairman of FOSMA), Capt Bhasin (Chairman MASSA, Secretary General CMMI, MD Crewing Service), and Capt (Dr) Ashutosh Apandkar (Principal of T. S. Rahman), discussing the aforementioned and more issues on Maritime HR and Training that the industry is facing at the moment.
