The Advanced Study Program of MIT's Center for Advanced Engineering Study is offering a 16-week graduate level program for practicing port planners and engineers directed by E. G. Frankel, professor of Ocean Systems, a well-known port planner and engineer, senior advisor on ports to the International Maritime Organization, and formerly port and shipping advisor at the World Bank. The program allows concentration in the broad areas of port planning, port management, port development, port construction management, port engineering, and port maintenance.
Activities are tailored to the background and needs of each participant. MIT offers over one thousand courses. Electives will be chosen after consultation with Professor Frankel and other faculty members. Courses may be taken for credit or as an auditor.
The program provides study offices, a project facility, computer facilities, videotape library and viewing facilities, and social activities for participants. Participants share classrooms, libraries, athletic and other facilities of MIT with regular students. The program also provides opportunities for participants to develop or improve their skills using microcomputers and to review basic subjects such as microeconomics and mathematics.
The fee for the program is $9,300. The fee does not include books or living expenses.
The program starts on February 1, 1988, and end on May 18, 1988. A certificate is awarded for satisfactory completion.
