What Students Are Saying

3.70 Average Rating
One of the toughest higher level institutions. Offers a difficult Engineering program that is geared towards sailing in the US Merchant Fleet. Will prepare students adequately for a career in the Merchant Marine. One entire year will be spent by the students out at sea on commercial ships working in the actual industry. The other three years the students are on a trimester system and usually average 18 credits during each trimester.
