Educational visit to the USA – Rutgers CAIT
Approximately 30 MSc in Shipping students, along with faculty from the University Of Piraeus Department Of Maritime Studies, visited the US for tours of shipping and port organizations such as the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, as well as relevant research centers and academic programs. As part of the trip, they spent a day at the Rutgers University Richard Weeks Hall of Engineering for presentations from Rutgers CAIT: Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation researchers and partners on their latest resilience, climate change, and maritime-related work.
