About Maritime College

SUNY Maritime College educates dynamic leaders for the global marine transportation industry, the business of shipping, engineering, energy, facilities management, finance, the armed forces and public service. Students choose from more than a dozen majors, including five ABET-accredited engineering programs, and two master's degree programs. Located 30 minutes from mid-town Manhattan, students participate in 17 varsity athletic teams and more than 40 clubs and organizations, ROTC options and U.S. Coast Guard license programs. The license program prepares students to navigate, power and operate marine vessels.

Across all of the College's programs and activities, the hallmark of a Maritime College education is learning by doing. This distinctive, hands-on approach attracts students who roll up their sleeves to prepare for personal and professional success through their studies, extracurriculars and job preparation.

Maritime College is in the fourth year of implementing its strategic plan, “Charting a New Course.” The plan emerged over the course of 18 months in consultation with stakeholder groups including alumni, industry executives, faculty, staff and corporate recruiters. The plan contains a robust and dynamic series of goals and actions that will prepare the college, its students and the industries we serve for a rapidly changing world.
