Marine Engineering Technology - BS

The Marine Engineering Technology (MARR)  program is designed to prepare the student for a career as an engineering professional in the maritime industry. Students receive an education in applied engineering with a maritime focus. The MARR curriculum is a thermal power-oriented specialization of a classical Mechanical Engineering Technology program.  A thorough preparation in mathematics, science, and engineering courses is the foundation for further study in ship propulsion plants, electrical power generation and distribution equipment. Marine Engineering Technology focuses on power cycles, principles, and methods used to convert various forms of energy into useful power. The Maritime industry is moving toward clean energy production onboard its vessels. The use of alternative fuels and Hybrid Energy Storage Systems (HESS) is becoming common. The curriculum explores the selection and operation of the major components and support systems in the power cycle. Courses in marine engineering are supplemented with studies in automation and control systems, naval architecture and the maritime application of electrical engineering fundamentals. The students' education is enhanced through the use of computer simulation of propulsion plants and direct operation of marine machinery aboard the University's training ship. Students who wish to pursue USCG license should enroll in the license option.  Marine Engineering Technology (MARR)  Program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET,
