The Merchant Navy Open Day aims to give you an insight into what a career in the maritime industry has to offer and the training programmes necessary to qualify as a ship's navigation or engineer officer in the merchant navy.
Many of the major British shipping companies and recruitment and training representatives who recruit cadets and crew will be there to give information about the career opportunities they offer. Teaching staff will be on hand to talk about the academic side of training.
You'll be able to talk to officer cadets, who'll be happy to share their first-hand experience of the training and life as a cadet, both at the City of Glasgow College and on board ship.
A number of the training facilities are open and you're welcome to tour the campus and accommodation nearby.
The working engine room will be running all day, giving you first-hand experience of a working engine room.
Also the bridge simulators will be working giving you the chance to experience piloting your own ship.
