The International Association of Maritime Universities is a global network of leading maritime universities providing Maritime Education and Training (MET) of seafarers for the global shipping industry.


IAMU was founded by seven universities representing the five continents of the world (Representative Universities) in November, 1999, with a shared recognition of significance of maritime education and training in the rapid globalization of the international shipping arena. Since then, IAMU has significantly expanded its membership, and now boasts 68 universities/academies/faculties of the world’s maritime education and training institutions, and The Nippon Foundation as its members, totaling 69 altogether.
