Marine Engineering Technology Career Path

82 Credits

The General Technology major allows students to select course work necessary to become multi-skilled technicians. In addition to completing the college’s core curriculum, students also complete course work in at least two technical areas. The following is an example of a career path available. The secondary paths may be substituted for courses in other programs’ primary path. Interested students should talk with their advisors.

This career path provides students with the opportunity and fundamental knowledge to work aboard United States Merchant Mariner vessels with the engine department upon successful completion of TTC's initial course work in the General Education Core and Primary Technical Specialty requirements. Students receive a comprehensive knowledge of machinery theory as well as hands-on experience to install, repair and maintain various types of equipment.

Students can earn only one General Technology degree in a single career path.
