Facilities Engineering

Facilities Engineering

Degree awarded: Bachelor of Engineering

Professional experience: Engine License, Intern Option

 

The Facilities Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

 

Facilities Engineering is an emerging application area with great promise for engineers with a maritime background. Key technologies for this discipline are heating, ventilating, and air conditioning together with computerized controls and techniques of energy management and conservation. This discipline requires knowledge of mathematics, thermal/fluid science, and electrical engineering. This is a good choice for students with significant managerial potential, people skills and an understanding of economics. Facilities Engineering was approved by the New York State Education Department in 2002, and is designed to permit a student to experience two Industrial Internships, or to obtain a U.S. Coast Guard License as Third Assistant Engineer by taking on three Summer Sea Term I, II & III.

 

The educational objectives of this program are for graduates (1) to become engineers who have the ability to practice the design, service, or operation of major facilities, buildings, or other infrastructure, and (2) to have the ability to take professional leadership positions that require an extensive engineering background
