OFFICE OF THE REGISTRAR
The Fisheries and Marine Institute was established in 1964 as the College of Fisheries, Navigation, Marine Engineering and Electronics, with a mandate to provide education and training in all aspects of fisheries and marine technology. Twenty years later, in 1984, the College moved to a new location within Pippy Park as the Institute of Fisheries and Marine Technology. In 1991, the Institute was affiliated with Memorial University of Newfoundland.
The Mandate of the Marine Institute is to provide for education and training in fisheries and marine science and technology, and for applied research and technical transfer. The Marine Institute is a distinct entity within the University with a Mission "to foster economic development in strategic marine sectors of the Newfoundland economy, particularly the fishery and offshore development, and to enable Newfoundlanders to participate in the marine industry, nationally and internationally".
The mission provides for the development of the Institute as an industrially relevant institution. A range of one year advanced diploma, three year diploma of technology, two year technician diploma and one year technical and vocational programmes are offered, together with a variety of industry oriented short courses. Programmes are designed to provide graduates with the knowledge, skills and experience appropriate for entry into and progression through the workforce. The standards of the programmes, and their industrial relevance, are validated through accreditation, where appropriate, with the Canadian Technology Accreditation Board or through certification by regulatory agencies such as the Canadian Coast Guard. The Institute also offers, in cooperation with other components of the University, Bachelor degrees in Maritime Studies which are based upon existing three year diploma programmes, and a Master of Science in Aquaculture. School of Fisheries short courses are offered within rural communities in harvesting, processing, safety and fisheries management, in cooperation with the Regional Colleges.
The Institute undertakes applied research, and engages in technology transfer and training for client industries. Within the School of Maritime Studies, the Offshore Safety and Survival Centre provides first aid, firefighting, and a variety of offshore safety and survival training short courses. The Centre for Marine Simulation offers training in electronic navigation, ballast control and cargo operations, tanker operations, and both ship's engine room and bridge operations as well as providing for simulation related research. The Industrial Response Unit promotes the use of personnel and facilities by industry, while the Fishing Technology Unit and Seafood Development Unit within the School of Fisheries, and the Centre for Marine Environmental Initiatives, within the School of Maritime Studies both undertake applied research and technology transfer and provide appropriate training.
MI International is the focal point for international programmes and activities of the Marine Institute. The Unit brings an international dimension to the Institute, while enhancing the Province's export capability, by participating in international development projects and establishing linkages with other institutions around the World.
Associated with the Institute are two arms-length research and development organizations. The Canadian Centre for Fisheries Innovation, founded in 1989 as a joint initiative of the Marine Institute and Memorial University, operates in the areas of aquaculture, harvesting, processing and equipment development. The Canadian Centre for Marine Communications is a non-profit corporation with a Mission to facilitate the expansion of the Canadian industrial base through a world class research and applied technology centre.
Additional information about the structure of the Marine Institute, its non-degree programmes, its research and technology transfer activities, and the operations of its centres, may be found in a separate Fisheries and Marine Institute calendar.
The Marine Institute operates from three locations around St. John's. The main complex lies within Pippy Park, overlooking the city and consists of classrooms and technical laboratories in support of its programmes, a fisheries flume tank, a licensed seafood processing plant, and new freshwater aquaculture research and development facilities. Additionally, in support of maritime studies activities, the complex includes extensive marine simulation facilities. Just 30 kilometres from St. John's, in Foxtrap, the Offshore Safety and Survival Centre provides training within a facility that includes an international class marine fire fighting unit, a survival tank and simulated ship structure which provides practical experience in controlling and extinguishing all types of shipboard fires.
Finally, the Institute includes a marine base at the Southside of St. John's harbour, where its vessels, including the training and research ship the MV Nain Banker are moored.
MARINE INSTITUTE ADVISORY COMMITTEE
An Industry based Advisory Committee, established by an Act of Legislature with members appointed by the Board of Regents of the University, advises the Marine Institute on fisheries and marine related programmes and activities.

STATEMENT OF ACADEMIC PURPOSE
The Fisheries and Marine Institute has a number of academic roles described in the legislation establishing the Institute as a component of the University. It provides degree, diploma, certificate and other programmes in the areas of fisheries and marine science and technology; it provides for the upgrading and enhancement of the fisheries and marine labour force in cooperation with the regional colleges, and it provides for applied research and technology transfer,
All programmes and courses are designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills required for success in the workforce. The advice of industrial programme advisory committees is sought in the ongoing development of longer programmes, while short courses are designed to meet specific industry needs. Whenever appropriate, programmes are submitted for national accreditation, providing graduates with mobility in professional employment
Three year and two year programmes include the Provincial Common First Year for applied science and engineering technologies, developed and introduced by the Marine Institute in 1990. The Common First Year reflects the need for technology programme graduates to possess an understanding of core science and mathematics concepts, which are fundamental to technology specific knowledge and skills.

It gives the student the opportunity to carry out an in-depth study into some particular aspect of the maritime milieu involving such areas as safety, management, national and international regulation, sea-survival or any number of topics involving the business of shipping. The report will be written under the supervision of a faculty member within the School of Maritime Studies and agreement must be reached with a particular faculty member before the study is undertaken.
