College of Maritime Education
In October 1996, the College of Maritime Education (CME) was established by Our Lady of Fatima University to provide quality education to aspiring seafarers in the CAMANAVA area and other neighboring cities and towns from Region 2 and 3.
Its degree programs, which are duly recognized by CHED and MARINA, equip future deck and engine officers with knowledge and trainings needed in the marine industry.
The College of Maritime Education’s facilities and equipment are of international standards, some of which are: a RADAR/ARPA (marine radar with automatic radar plotting aid), an ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System) room, GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress and Safety System) simulators, a mock bridge with complete seamanship tools and paraphernalia, boiler systems, marine machineries, and two (2) engine room simulators.
With the aid of up-to-date facilities, combined with an excellent pool of competent professors, the CME graduates receive a well-rounded and quality education that give them a robust employment opportunities aboard international vessels such as officers-in-charge of navigational watch and engineering watch.
