The IMarEST (est 1889) is a membership body/learned society with 20,200 members across 128 countries. It promotes the development of marine engineering, science and technology, providing opportunities for the exchange of ideas and upholding the status, standards and expertise of marine professionals worldwide. The IMarEST is a NGO with consultative status at the IMO.
The IMarEST UAE branch strives to enrich the regional maritime industry, independent of employers’ patronage of professional development. We believe that an investment in the maritime services environment yields the best interest in terms of nurturing the talent pool and creating a solid foundation for marine professionals. This boosts regional maritime competitiveness commensurate with Dubai’s ambitious vision of being one of the world’s leading maritime centers by 2021.
