A marine officer operating in the self contained environment of a ship at sea must be capable of effectively using the tools available onboard to accomplish the maintenance, repair and operational demands of the job. To impart this competency, our Engineering program rely heavily on practical training, conducted at the custom built and equipped workshop. Students are given hands-on training in the proper use of tools, safe practices, equipment characteristics as well as repair and maintenance procedures under the supervision and guidance of the experienced faculty.
