Maritime’s Facilities Engineering program equips young professionals to operate, service and manage the heating, air conditioning, ventilation and other systems for large facilities, like hospitals, schools, corporate buildings and ships.
This program is a good option for students who enjoy math, science and engineering disciplines combined with economics and management principles.
Your academic knowledge is tested and supplemented by professional learning experiences. All students choose to complete two summer internships or to pursue a U.S. Coast Guard engine license by sailing the college's Training Ship Empire State VI, and joining the regiment of cadets. The regiment is a disciplined lifestyle program and is not affiliated with the military.

When you graduate, you will be able to design, maintain and operate the power plants and systems in buildings and other large facilities.
