The above visit was made in conjunction with the Elements of Shipping course for the college’s fifth-semester Diploma in Integrated Logistics Management students. The main objective was to expose them to the role of MIMA as a policy research institute that serves as a Centre of Excellence (CoE) for maritime-related matters.
