Future Students

By stressing the skills, knowledge, and character needed in the maritime industry, we are building the next generation of merchant marine leaders.

The Student Experience     

Building Future Leaders

The Department of Maritime Transportation understands that knowledge gained in a classroom is vital yet limited, even if it is delivered by first class professors and industry experts. That is why the department heavily emphasizes the use of hands-on training in state-of-the-art simulators, onboard ships, or in the inner workings of the port. Combined, these two facets of the MART education give our graduates all the skills and confidence they will need to become the next generation of leaders in the maritime industry.
