Centre for Maritime Studies



Director’s Welcome

The NUS Centre for Maritime Studies is a university-level research centre which marks a milestone in Singapore’s bid to become an international maritime centre.

As home to the world’s largest port with her national shipping line among the top 10 carriers in the world and with marine industries led by major world player Singapore is a key player in the international maritime community. Recognized as a model for maritime development in the world, Singapore is well placed to drive and transform into an international maritime centre.

In establishing the centre, NUS, together with the Ministry of Transport, the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore and key industry players, have facilitated the establishment of a maritime “think-tank” – an independent, authoritative Centre for Maritime Studies, transcending traditional disciplinary research boundaries of Law, Science, Engineering and Business.

The Centre conducts research in areas of interest and relevance to the industry, provides consultancy services to the industry, in addition to providing timely and informed views and research data and projections. We welcome anyone with an interest in the maritime industry to get in touch with us.

Whether you are visiting us for the first time, or a frequent visitor to our website, I warmly encourage you to return to our website often to explore our upcoming activities and information.
