The Marine Engineering Technology program at Texas A&M University is a thermal power-oriented specialization of a classical Mechanical Engineering Technology program. A thorough preparation in mathematics, science, and basic engineering courses is the foundation for further study in ship propulsion plants and electrical power generation and distribution equipment. 

Marine Engineering Technology focuses on power cycles, principles, and methods used to convert the energy in fossil fuels into useful power, and the selection and operation of the major components and sup­port systems in the power cycle. Courses in marine engineering are supplemented with studies in naval architecture and maritime appli­cation of electrical engineering fundamentals. 


The students' education is enhanced through the use of computer simulation of propulsion plants and direct operation of marine machinery aboard the University's training ship. MARR is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET.
