The Academician Profiles of Maritime Higher Education Institutions in Turkey

One of the most important missions of maritime educational institutions is to educate the qualified labor force meeting the international maritime manpower market needs. For that purpose in Turkey, the number of educational institutions providing manpower to the maritime industry has been rapidly increased in the last decade. Concordantly, there have been a lot of investments in laboratories, classrooms and simulators in order to enable sufficient training. Despite of all these aforesaid developments, the most important issue, instructor or academicians with maritime background, was neglected. Now, Academicians have become the most important human capital. This capital cannot be created immediately yet it can be brought into existence within a long period of time. Without this capital is not possible to train qualified seafarers, to survive in the maritime industry. The aim of this study is to determine the profiles of the maritime higher education institutions in Turkey, their capacities and profiles of the academicians with maritime background employed in such institutions. During the study, structured interview questions have been used. Data collected was obtained through official sources. Maritime higher education institutions providing education at the undergraduate level with full-time employed academicians (with maritime background) have been evaluated via the data obtained using the methods of statistical analysis.
