MN100: SUNY Maritime College

Marine News

The School:
Combining classroom and lab learning with summer sea terms aboard the training ship and industry internships, SUNY Maritime prepares students to be leaders in all sectors of industry, the military and government. Education and training are comprehensive and use state-of-the-art simulation centers and facilities. The college has expanded to include more than 20 buildings and the training ship Empire State VI, a 565-foot ship that gives mariners-in-training the knowledge, skills and sea time necessary to join the maritime industry. The Bouchard Transportation Company Inc. Tug and Barge Simulation Center opened in 2015 and includes a full-mission bridge and two class B tug assist simulators for students to practice maneuvers.

The Case:

SUNY Maritime College produces more licensed mariners than any other U.S. institution. Fully one quarter of these go on to work in the brown water industry, providing nearly a third of its licensed mariners. The college is involved in STCW compliance and helps professional mariners maintain their credentials through training.
