New PhD in Nautical Sciences awarded to Rowan Van Schaeren

Rowan Van Schaeren, professor at our Academy, successfully defended his doctoral thesis on Terminal Optimization, to become the second Doctor in Nautical Sciences.
Only in 2006, Nautical Sciences became a separate field of study, allowing to obtain a PhD in it.
As PhD’s are awarded by universities, our Academy and the Antwerp University created a special joint faculty for this purpose.
