Museo Maritimo

    Brief History

Asian Institute of Maritime Studies (AIMS) is a merchant marine college in Pasay City, Philippines that provides highly technical learning in terms of maritime education. AIMS is one of the top performing maritime schools in the Philippines. AIMS was founded in 1993 by Captain Wilijado P. Abuid along with his friends.

Sometime in July 1993, a group of thirteen educators and merchant marine officers established an institute of higher learning, the Asian Institute of Maritime Studies. The forerunners behind AIMS, namely: Capt. Wilijado P. Abuid, a former Navy Officer and a maritime educator in the field of training and upgrading; Atty. Santiago N. Pastor, a corporate lawyer, banker and educator; Dr. Felicito P. Dalaguete, a marine officer and an academician with expertise in marine education and training; Mrs. Jayne O. Abuid, a business woman; Arlene Abuid-Paderanga, Ed.D., a management specialist with background in Architecture and Design, along with other incorporators. Thus, on 16 August 1993, AIMS was legally registered as a non-stock educational institution, and was issued government accreditation by the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) to offer Customs Administration and Merchant Marine courses. AIMS is located at Roxas Boulevard fronting Manila Bay. The campus, with its training facilities housed at AIMS Tower was opened. In 1999, another site at A. S. Arnaiz Ave. corner F. B. Harrison St. was inaugurated to greet the new millennium towards more intensive and comprehensive education and training. In 2005, a new site (a six-storey building) was opened at Roxas Boulevard to house the Maritime College. The shack is also expected to house the Maritime Knowledge Exchange where libraries and an envisioned museum (Museo Maritimo) will be opened to the public.
