Engineering Technology Program Requirements

Marine Technology

Marine technicians design, operate and repair equipment key to exploring, developing and sustaining the marine environment.

Marine Technology at NMC is unique in that it prepares you to work in a number of different opportunities in the marine related industries — aboard oceangoing ships, inland survey vessels and offshore oil platforms, at hydroelectric facilities, and in many other areas of water infrastructure.

Our program emphasizes the applied use of marine equipment and we are closely connected to many industries that both support our programs with equipment and also seek our successful program graduates. Students enrolling in Marine Technology at NMC will have direct access to remotely operated vehicles, multiple sonar platforms, research vessels, underwater cameras, remote sensing equipment and advanced marine data processing software.
