Palma shipyard helps train students of new university nautical program

ADVERTISEMENT

STP Shipyard Palma recently teamed up with the University of the Balearic Islands to offer students of the university’s new Master in Nautical Industry program a chance to experience the inside operations of a large yacht repair center.  

The students were able to learn directly from STP Manager Joan Roselló about the management of a shipyard where more than 1,500 people from about 500 fields in the nautical sector are working on more than 140 yachts, according to a press release from the shipyard.

The shipyard stated that it plans to continue offering local professional training to students in an effort to meet a growing demand for maritime professionals in the area, and expects that many of the students will find employment there after graduation.

According to the shipyard, this initiative was made possible through an agreement with the Spanish Association of Large Yachts, the Commerce of Mallorca Chamber, the Employer of Maritime Activities of the Balearic Islands Association, Maritime Captaincy of Mallorca, and Maritime Rescue, among other organizations and institutions.
