Mechanical Engineering

Mechanical Engineering

Degree awarded: Bachelor of Engineering

Professional experience available: Engine License, Intern Option

 

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

 

Mechanical Engineering at Maritime ia focused on the design of innovative mechanisms, to assure they operate correctly and are sufficiently robust. This discipline requires a firm foundation in applied mechanics, mathematics, fluid mechanics, electrical engineering and a practical, tangible orientation for design. Mechanical Engineering is the third of the three programs approved by the New York State Education Department in 2002. It is designed to permit a student to experience two Industrial Internships, or to obtain a U.S. Coast Guard License as Third Assistant Engineer 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 mechanical systems, and (2) to have the ability to take professional leadership positions that require an extensive engineering background
