Marine Engineering

Marine Engineering

Degree awarded: Bachelor of Engineering

Professional experience available: Engine License only

 

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

 

Marine Engineering is the oldest engineering program at the Maritime College. It is a broad field focused on the design and operation of marine and industrial power plants. It is heavily oriented toward thermal/fluid sciences due to the emphasis on energy use and conservation, and requires knowledge of mathematics, applied mechanics, electrical engineering and a practical orientation for problem solving. U.S. Coast Guard Engine Licensure as an engineering officer is required. The annual Summer Sea Term, a highly structured, intensive application of a cadet's engineering knowledge, is an integral part of this program. The Marine Engineering program focuses on thermal power systems, applied mechanics, and electrical machinery, power electronics and control.

 

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 marine or industrial power systems, and (2) to have the ability to take professional leadership positions that require an extensive engineering background
