About the Event
The Maritime Campus is a one-day maritime exhibition set up within a Junior College campus to allow students to gain insights of the maritime industry and its education, scholarship and career opportunities. The MaritimeONE staff and scholars were present at the exhibition to answer any queries that the students might have. Information panels were also displayed at the exhibition to give the students a brief overview of the industry and students could participate in a Maritime Quiz at the booth and stand a chance to win POPULAR vouchers. This year, the Maritime Campus was held at Pioneer Junior College (PJC) on 9th March 2016. The event was well-received by the students and this serves as a good platform to introduce them to the maritime industry and its many available opportunities. Besides the exhibition, a Maritime Talk was also organised where industry professionals and MaritimeONE scholars who are also the alumni of PJC were invited to share about their experiences and insights into the maritime industry with the students.
