Pavilion Energy and DNV have jointly developed a fit-for-purpose LNG bunker digital solution for employment in the Port of Singapore.
The Maritime industry is always described as male-dominated, however, my perception of this has changed since I joined AASTS. Male and female students are considered as equals and are provided with the similar opportunities and challenges. The faculty at the academy has instilled a sense of confidence in me and today I am of the opinion that if you believe in yourself and are determined everything is achievable, irrespective of your gender.
I enrolled for the Maritime Transport Technology major that has two disciplines — port operations and offshore operations. After starting my courses at AASTS, I am elated with this decision of mine. When you’re at the Academy your gender doesn’t matter. I know for sure that a world full of opportunities awaits me once I graduate from college.
AASTS is preparing me to graduate in more ways than one. As I continue my studies, I constantly come across methods and concepts that help me attain in-depth information about the industry. Academics aren’t the only stronghold at AASTS, the academy focuses on the all-round development of all students. I, personally, have learned about several organizational values like teamwork, leadership, accepting challenges head-on, and many more.
Every profession has its own challenges and the maritime industry is no different. Despite this, I signed up for the Marine Engineering Technology major because I always dreamt of being a part of the maritime industry. I am grateful to AASTS as everyone at the academy, right from the faculty to my classmates have been encouraging and extremely supportive of women. My experience has not only taught me about the industry, but I have also learned several life lessons.
As a student at AASTS, every day is a learning day. The insights I have received are invaluable. I would definitely advise to enroll at the academy as it qualifies us for a promising career in the industry after graduation. The academy is a distinctive place for education and also provides networking opportunities. If you want a challenging college experience, AASTS is the right college for you.
Attending AASTS is one of the best decisions I have made. The academy provides a structured lifestyle, where you learn about discipline and leadership skills, while preparing for your career in the maritime industry. I know that eventually the hard work that I am putting in and the efforts of the faculty will pay off. I am thrilled to be studying at such a prestigious institute that boasts of reputable alumni.
