2018 Summer Classes

MTR Marine Transportation

The marine transportation practicum is designed to expose students to the dynamic work environment of the professional mariner. Students will work closely with an onsite supervisor throughout the practicum. Students will assume the role of a maritime professional (deckhand, officer, engineer, vessel support personnel, etc.) appropriate to the maritime field they are interested in. Students will complete a number of competencies appropriate to that sector of the industry. Due to the nature of the maritim industry, these competencies will be specific to each student embarking on the practicum.
