Electrical Engineering

Degree awarded: Bachelor of Engineering

Professional experience: Engine License, Deck License, Intern Option

 

The Electrical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

 

Electrical Engineering at Maritime is focused on the generation, transmission, control and use of electrical power. The advent of electronic control of large electrical machinery has revolutionized marine engineering and ship design. Students in this program must be well versed in the electrical sciences, mathematics and the sciences, and have a special ability to think abstractly. Electrical Engineering was approved by the New York State Education Department in 2002. It is designed to permit a student to pursue two Industrial Internships. A student may pursue a U.S. Coast Guard License as Third Assistant Engineer or Third Mate by taking Summer Sea Term I, II & III.

 

The educational objectives of this program are for graduates (1) to become engineers who have the ability to practice the design, service, or operation of electrical systems or electrical power systems, and (2) to have the ability to take professional leadership positions that require an extensive engineering background
