Having spent 3 years working through the MTEC course, I must admit there is a small part of me that is wishing I was still on the course. The friends and contacts I made will stay with me for a long time to come. It was this support and encouragement from fellow MTEC students and lecturers that helped me stay focused even when the assignment deadlines and work commitments loomed. I found the various modules related well to my current job and I feel this has put me in good stead for the future. The lecturers for the modules offer good insight into the marine industry and were willing to shares their experiences of the industry with everyone which helped put the theory learned into practice. I would highly recommend MTEC course to anyone wishing to expand their knowledge and qualifications in the marine industry.
