The Faculty of Navigation of our university gained the right to confer the title of doktor habilitowany (habilitated doctor) of technical sciences in the field of transport. Therefore, it is the first Faculty of Navigation in Poland with such rights. Except for the Maritime University of Szczecin, studies at the same faculty are also provided by: Gdynia Maritime University and Polish Naval Academy.
Our university in partnership with a Turkish shipyard is going to build a boat propelled by renewable energy - with a hybrid solar-wind-electric propulsion. The consortium of Maritime University of Szczecin, Warsaw University of Technology, and the Autocomp company from Szczecin were allocated a EUR 1M grant for project implementation. Final assembly, launching and the boat's first cruise are planned to take place in the Marmara Sea in 2016.
