This department provides the faculty and facilities required to teach the programs in Marine Engineering, Marine Engineering Systems, and Marine Engineering and Shipyard Management, as well as engineering courses in the Maritime Operations and Technology curriculum and the engineering portion of the Dual License program. The department’s chief responsibility is to prepare midshipmen for the U.S. Coast Guard license examination in engineering and to educate them as well-prepared marine engineers.
The Engineering Department faculty offices are in Fulton Hall, with classrooms and laboratories in both Fulton and Gibbs Halls.
All laboratories are high quality and house modern equipment and instrumentation. There are laboratories for diesel and steam engineering, refrigeration, marine engineering, thermodynamics, materials testing, machine shop, mechanical engineering, welding, electrical machinery, control systems, electric circuits, engine room simulators and graphics.
The engineering curriculum reflects the integration of computers, especially personal computers, into the program.
