Students in the Mechanical Engineering program at the SUNY Maritime College focus on designing and building innovative mechanical components and systems.


Mechanical Engineering is a versatile program at the SUNY Maritime College. Though many other schools offer it, few can provide the same access and opportunities for hands-on, real-world training. At Maritime, you will complete two professional internships or work toward a U.S. Coast Guard third assistant engineer, or engine, license by sailing and working onboard the college's Training Ship Empire State VI.

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

Programme Structure

  • Mechanical Engineering courses focus on applied mechanics, math, fluid mechanics, electrical engineering, and design techniques and concepts.
  • If you are interested in working onboard a commercial vessel, you may pursue a U.S. Coast Guard engine license. The engine license program focuses on powering and controlling a ship’s engine and energy systems, and you will work extensively on the training ship during your four years here. 
  • You will also belong to the college regiment of cadets. Earning a Coast Guard license does not require military service.
