Professors at Maine Maritime Academy work with students in classrooms, laboratories, and aboard ships. Our full-time faculty of more than 60 men and women stress the connections between theory and real-world applications. Faculty come from diverse academic backgrounds, and from industrial positions in engineering, ship operations, marine science, maritime management, and small vessel design and operation. Faculty members serve as academic advisors and also participate in research, consulting, and other academic pursuits. Part-time faculty include visiting professors from industry and from domestic and foreign universities.
