As an Electrical Engineering major at the SUNY Maritime College, you will gain in-depth classroom and practical knowledge about power generation, control and use.


Your academic knowledge is tested and supplemented by professional learning experiences. All students choose either to complete two summer internships, or pursue a U.S. Coast Guard deck or engine license by sailing the college 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.

Electrical Engineering courses at the SUNY Maritime College focus on electrical science, math and the sciences, and teach students to think abstractly.

Student Outcomes

  • Electrical Engineering graduates at Maritime College will possess:
  • an ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science and engineering
  • an ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data
  • an ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economics, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability
  • an ability to function on multi-disciplinary teams
  • an ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems


The Electrical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

Programme Structure

  • Learning in Electrical Engineering goes well beyond the classroom. You will spend your time in labs, designing, building and testing ways to generate and deliver power, and analyzing the results. Increasingly, courses focus on sources of renewable energy and its impact on the maritime and transportation industries.
  • If you are interested in working onboard a commercial vessel, you may pursue a U.S. Coast Guard deck or engine license. Both license programs require membership in the college’s regiment of cadets. Earning a Coast Guard license does not require military service.
