The Confederation of European Maritime Technology Societies

The Confederation of European Maritime Technology Societies (CEMT) is an independent confederation of professional institutions (those involved in education and professional development) and learned societies (those facilitating the exchange of information) in the field of maritime technology.   

CEMT provides a forum for the exchange of information and views by the constituent societies on matters relating to the education and professional development of naval architects, marine engineers and others in the field of maritime technology.

Through its member Societies, CEMT is able to call upon the knowledge, skills and experience of over 60,000 professional naval architects, marine engineers and others in the field of maritime technology. It is therefore uniquely placed to contribute to the success of the European maritime industry.


The members of CEMT are those professional institutions and learned societies whose Headquarters are in Europe, and  whose members are involved in the  field of maritime technology. Other organisations involved in the education of maritime engieers in Europe may apply to become Associate Members
