Your first step towards a career at sea…
The Tripartite Maritime Scholarship Scheme (TMSS) offers an opportunity to jump-start your seafaring career. This scholarship, sponsored by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA), shipping companies and unions, grooms promising students to become Ship Captains and Chief Engineers of ocean-going merchant ships and be the leaders of Singapore’s maritime industry.
Pursuing a Diploma in Nautical Studies would prepare you to be a Deck Officer, and eventually lead to the appointment as a Ship’s Captain. On the other hand, a Diploma in Marine Engineering would train you to be an engineer onboard ship, and eventually lead to the position of Chief Engineer.
