Rowan Van Schaeren, professor at our Academy, successfully defended his doctoral thesis on Terminal Optimization, to become the second Doctor in Nautical Sciences.
Only in 2006, Nautical Sciences became a separate field of study, allowing to obtain a PhD in it.
As PhD’s are awarded by universities, our Academy and the Antwerp University created a special joint faculty for this purpose.
