Marine Engineering Technology
Marine engineering technologists apply their knowledge and experience to solving technical problems related to marine equipment, systems, and vehicles.  Graduates may find employment in many areas of the maritime industry -- at sea and ashore.  They also are employed in non-maritime industries such as public utilities and manufacturing. Students entering
this major are interested in working at sea with the option of becoming
a shore-based technologist.

Those interested in a career in marine engineering technology should consider reviewing engineering technology programs that are accredited by ABET, Inc. However, there are many ET programs not yet accredited by ABET, so check with your local community college or university for more information. If you choose to attend a program that is not ABET accredited, you should be sure that the university is regionally accredited. Students explore engineering graphics, naval architecture, diesel engineering, turbines, plant operations, fluid mechanics, hydrostatic stability, ship maintenance, solid mechanics, materials, dynamics and energy systems. They likely will also spend some time on ships applying their knowledge and training onboard a vessel. The
following is a current list of all universities offering accredited degree programs in marine engineering technology
