Our open days aim to give you an insight into what a career in the maritime industry has to offer, and the training programmes necessary to qualify as a ship's navigation, engineer or electro-technical officer in the merchant navy and the superyacht industry. Many of the major British shipping companies and recruitment and training representatives who recruit cadets and crew will be there to give information about the career opportunities they offer. Our teaching staff are also on hand to talk about the academic side of training. You can talk to our officer cadets, who are often happy to share their first hand experience of the training and life as a cadet, both at Solent and on board ship. This event will be based at our Spark building, however we have facilities tours available at the new St Mary's campus, where you will be able to visit the engineering workshop. There will also be presentations and maritime safety talks, as well as demonstrations in the electronic chart display and electro-technical simulation suites. The student residences will also be open for guided tours. To book your place, please visit www.solent.ac.uk/open-days
