Jeoffrey S. Mojana


In this increasingly connected and worldwide civilization, the world has been pushed to adjust in the next period like never before. Maritime education's future is certainly going to look substantially different from what it did in the past. This study's main objective is to gauge the maritime students' degree of Information-Communications Technology (ICT) proficiency at one of the Philippines' higher education institutions in Zamboanga City. The study used a quantitative-descriptive design and a five-point Likert scale adapted from Infante-Moro's (2019) research to address the research topics. With representation from every year level, 94 respondents were chosen using stratified random sampling. According to this survey, the ICT proficiency of maritime students is very high. The use of ICT for communication produced the highest mean among the ICT components assessed, indicating that maritime students are proficient in it. With these conclusions, the study suggests that the College of Maritime Education may continue to teach the current curriculum, which focuses on developing the ICT abilities of upcoming seafarers because these skills are already essential.
