The Engineering Majors provide midshipmen with the education and training to design, build, operate, maintain and repair the engineering systems used on modern marine vessels and to prepare them for positions of increasing responsibility in the maritime and intermodal transportation industries.
The Engineering Majors also provide midshipmen with a sound, broad-based engineering education while simultaneously preparing them for an unrestricted license as a third assistant engineer of steam and motor vessels.
The Academy offers three engineering majors:
The synergistic combination of classical engineering studies and operations-oriented training and experience offers graduates an unbeatable amalgamation of skills that prepare them for a broad range of professional occupations. The special nature of the Academy makes the engineering graduates well suited for professions in the maritime industry as well as in related fields such as power generation and intermodal transportation.
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.
