Marine Engineering

Massachusetts Maritime Academy


The Marine Engineering (MENG) program prepares graduates for careers as licensed engineering officers in the United States Merchant Marine and for engineering positions in associated shoreside industries.

The MENG program includes approximately 50 days of practical shipboard training each year to satisfy STCW requirements for sea service. Shipboard training typically takes place during the annual sea term. Students gain practical experience either aboard the USTS Kennedy or aboard commercial merchant ships to experience the maritime industry first-hand. The MENG major requires students to complete four sea terms.
