Marine Technology And Captain

The Marine Technology/Captain program prepares you for a career on board a ship, whether a ship that transports commercial goods, a ship that transports passengers, a cruise ship, a fishing vessel or a research vessel. You will start by learning the basic principles of mechanical engineering, nautical terminology, oceanography, marine laws and seamanship, which covers topics such as safety precautions on a sea vessel, first aid measures, response to emergencies and sending distress signals, and then move on to the ins and outs of hydrography and marine navigation, as well as the structure of the ship and troubleshooting the marine engine.
