The Maritime D/coded Tour took place on 26 January 2018. This exclusive tour was organised with Jurong Port and PSA to interest students from diverse fields of study, particularly those from courses relating to business analytics, information security, data science and analytics, and information systems. Students from other disciplines like Economics, Engineering and Business also joined the session.
To kick-start the programme, Mr Kenneth Chia, Executive Director of the Singapore Maritime Foundation, delivered an overview of Maritime Singapore. Students had the privilege to attend a talk by Mr Kenneth Lim, MPA’s Chief Technology Officer, where he spoke about the Government’s plans for the Digital Transformation of the maritime industry in Singapore. Professionals from Jurong Port and PSA specialising in fields relating to data analytics and information security shared about their job scope and personal working experience to give the students insights about their career opportunities in the maritime industry. Participants also had the rare chance to visit both container as well as multi-purpose terminals under Jurong Port and PSA.
