Portrait of the Department of Maritime in Leer
The Department of Maritime at the University of Applied Sciences Emden/Leer has a long tradition dating back to 1854 when it was founded as the ‘Urban Navigation School of Leer’, with the aim of training captains. Today, it is a renowned training centre for maritime executives, with our Bachelor's degree programmes in nautical science, ship and shipping line management.
