Marine Systems Engineering (Non-License Track)

The Non-License Track of Marine Systems Engineering is a four-year Bachelor of Science program including all the humanities, math, science, and engineering analysis and design courses of the 5-year Marine Systems Engineering program, but without many of the engineering operations courses required by the 5-year program. It does not lead to eligibility to sit for the USCG Third Assistant Engineer’s license.

The MSE Non-License Track program is one of the more academically rigorous courses of study at Maine Maritime Academy. Comparable to the mechanical engineering curricula of other institutions, MSE Non-License Track is distinguished by its grounding in marine applications and naval architecture.

Successful completion of the 4-year program leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in Marine Systems Engineering – Non License Track, and prepares the graduate for careers in engineering design, consulting, or management in maritime, industrial power, or general engineering fields. Graduates of this non-license track are also well prepared to pursue advanced study at graduate school in numerous engineering disciplines.

Notes:

  • Each first-year student must pass PE114.

The following table outlines the normal sequence of courses taken by students majoring in Marine Systems Engineering – Non-License Track:
