Maritime College Earns Further Accreditation
The Engineer's Council for Professional Development (ECPD) has accredited the electrical engineering, marine engineering, and naval architecture curricula of SUNY Maritime College. The ECPD is recognized by the Council on Postsecondary Accreditation (COPA) as the accrediting body for engineering programs.
According to Dr. William R.
Porter, vice president for Academic Affairs of SUNY Maritime College at Fort Schuyler, Bronx, N.Y., the accreditation process is quite thorough and involves a detailed review of the engineering curricula, faculty, students, facilities, graduates and the institutional administration. The process includes an on-site visit by a team of engineers, some from academia and some from industry. In essence, the ECPD accreditation signifies that the accredited curricula meets the minimum requirements set forth by its Engineering Education and Accreditation Committee.
Now, with the accreditation of the electrical engineering and naval architecture curricula, the college becomes the first and only maritime school to offer multiple accredited engineering curricula.
Dr. Porter stated that the credit for this success must go to every member of the college community, but especially to Jose Femenia, professor of engineering and chairman of the Department of Engineering.
In addition to the three curricula mentioned, the college has three additional engineering license- core programs — ocean engineering, nuclear science, and computer science. Present plans include submitting the ocean engineering curriculum for ECPD review once a sufficient pool of ocean engineering graduates are practicing in the industry. Deck license-core curricula are offered in electrical engineering (electronics), transportation economics, transportation management, meteorology and oceanography and computer science.
SUNY Maritime College is the oldest institution of its kind in the United States, having been established in 1874.
