Seattle Maritime Academy offers skill upgrade programs - the Marine Engineering Technology and Marine Deck Technology. Students completing these programs will have the skills necessary for employment in the maritime industry as professional mariners. Both programs combine practical shipboard experience and required courses in engineering with additional courses depending on the program selection. The academic programs are followed by at-sea internship on a large commercial vessel.
Marine Engineering Technology program combines course in engineering, computation, communication and human relations. Emphasis is placed on the theory, design, operation and maintenance of marine propulsion plants and associated equipment. The Marine Deck Technology Program combines practical shipboard experience and requisite courses in nautical science with additional courses in computation, communication and human relations. Emphasis is placed on the theory, design, operation and maintenance of deck equipment and applied navigation skills. In both cases the sea component requires students to go to sea once a week during the second and third quarters aboard the collegeís training vessels.
