Academics

Maine Maritime Academy is a career-oriented college and globally recognized leader in providing rigorous and practical maritime, engineering, engineering technology, marine science, and logistics education with facilities and laboratories that are at the leading edge of technological innovation. Rigorous academic programs are designed and managed by a faculty from diverse academic backgrounds and from industrial positions in engineering, ship operations, marine sciences, maritime management, and small vessel design and operation.

Hands-on training has been the hallmark of a Maine Maritime Academy education since its founding in 1941. Employers hire MMA students for their mastery of classroom theory and applied technology. Our graduates land leadership positions—from the bridge of a supertanker, to the Pentagon, to the boardrooms of Fortune 500 companies. Many of our graduating seniors accept employment with companies they work for as students during cadet shipping or cooperative education assignments.
