Change the world

The South Africa International Maritime Institute (SAIMI), which is hosted by, but independent from Nelson Mandela University, links industry and educational institutions.  
It is a multi-disciplinary, multi-stakeholder entity active in all aspects of the maritime sector, including shipping, harbours, manufacturing and construction, sustainability, environment, law, and marine tourism.  
SAIMI amplifies the voice of Operation Phakisa on our Ocean Sciences Campus, and is the implementing agency for ocean sciences skills development and capacity building funded by the Department of Higher Education and Training. 
Through coordination of education, training and research with its partner institutions, SAIMI enhances the contribution of the maritime sector to the economy of South Africa and Africa.
