Marine Engineering Technology

Length of Study:4 years

Workterm:3 work terms

Location:Marine Institute campus, Ridge Road

 

You supply the power, we supply the knowledge

You will control ship's systems and solve problems working with your mind and hands, both on land and at sea. We will equip you with the skills necessary to engineer a career you'll love.

 

Responsibilities will include the mechanical operations of a vessel such as main propulsion and auxiliary systems. You will offer employers a strong technical background in marine engineering technology.

 

With the real experience at sea in areas such as engineering knowledge, naval architecture and machinery maintenance you will quickly distinguish yourself from the competition. When you finish the program and have completed the required sea-time, you are eligible to write your fourth class marine engineering examinations with Transport Canada and have credits up to the second class level.

 

This allows you to progress within the marine transportation industry to a senior position in a short amount of time.

 

Program Structure

This four-year program consists of seven academic terms, two technical sessions and three work terms.

First year: Two academic terms followed by a technical session.

Second year: Two academic terms followed by a technical session and a work term.

Third year: Two academic terms with a work term in between.

Fourth year: A work term followed by a return to campus for a final academic term. The three work terms allow for 180 sea days required for Transport Canada certification. A land-based option is available for those interested.

 

 

Marine Engineering Systems Design

Length of Study:3 years

Workterm:n/a

Location:Marine Institute campus, Ridge Road

 

Picture yourself giving life to ships and offshore structures

You'll learn how to design all the piping and support systems that permit marine vehicles to operate safely and efficiently in harsh marine environments. You'll use the latest marine design software to specify, select and design such marine systems as firefighting, bilge and ballast,fuel oil, lube oil, HVAC and more.

 

We'll teach you to design and select propulsion systems from diesel engines and gas turbines to propellers and water jets. And, you will be able to choose among careers, at home or around the world.

 

Program Structure

This three-year program consists of six academic terms and three technical sessions.

First year: Two academic terms and a six-week technical session.

Second year: On-campus study involving the completion of a technical project.

Third year: On-campus study involving the completion of a technical project.

Marine Environmental Technology

Length of Study:3 years

Workterm:2 work terms

Location:Marine Institute campus, Ridge Road

Looking to make your mark?

Be among the professionals who influence this new and rapidly growing sector of the marine industry. As a marine environmental technologist, you will develop environmentally sound projects and work to prevent and create responses to marine pollution or degradation.

 

You will go from lakes to rivers and coastal zones to the fragile offshore. You will be responsible for protecting the marine environment and developing solutions to manage our marine resources.

You will gain hands-on experience as you search for smart solutions in the field, lab and boardroom. Graduates of this program work in diverse jobs and sectors, from safety inspection to climate control abatement, as the environmental industry provides support for all other sectors.

Program Structure

This three-year program consists of six academic semesters, two technical sessions and two work terms.

First Year: Two academic terms followed by a technical session.

Second Year: Two academic terms followed by a technical session and a work term.

Third Year: Two academic terms followed by a work term.

Nautical Science

Length of Study:4 years

Workterm:2 work terms

Location:Marine Institute campus, Ridge Road

Feel the pull of the tide, or crave a life on the high seas?

If so, this is the program for you. Our Nautical Science diploma program prepares you to qualify for Transport Canada's Watchkeeping Mate certificate of competency allowing you to sail anywhere in the world as an officer on a wide variety of vessels.

 

You also get a head start on higher level certificates of competency because of credits you receive towards Transport Canada examinations and sea service exemptions. As a cadet, you'll train on a wide range of ships, from large passenger cruise ships to cargo vessels.

 

In the classroom, you are exposed to science, technology and tradition as you learn to manage and safely navigate a vessel while caring for the cargo you're carrying and protecting the marine environment in which you operate. Currently, there is a high demand for ships’ officers around the globe.

You can travel worldwide while living at home.

 

Program Structure

This four-year program, consists of six academic terms, three technical sessions and two sea phase work terms. This cadet program alternates semesters on-campus with semesters at sea.

First year: Two academic terms followed by an eight-week technical session and a two-month sea phase.

Second year: Two academic terms followed by a six-week technical session and a 15-month sea phase.

Third year: Two academic terms followed by an eight-week technical session.

 

 

Naval Architecture

Length of Study:3 years

Workterm:n/a

Location:Marine Institute campus, Ridge Road

 

 

Design the vessels for the world's waterways

Our Diploma of Technology in Naval Architecture is your passport to engineering excellence, be it in a shipyard or a boatyard, a consulting firm or an offshore oil and gas company. We have the experience you are looking for.

 

We will work with you to develop your analytical, design, drawing and surveying skills through courses ranging from engineering graphics to ship stability and ship production to composite structures. And, through the completion of a hands-on technical project, you ll put your skills and knowledge to the test.

 

If this is where you want to be, we can help you get there.

 

Program Structure

This three-year program features six academic terms and three technical sessions.

First year: Two academic terms with an introductory course to the program in the first semester, followed by a six-week technical session.

Second year: Terms three and four include on-campus study followed by a five-week technical session.

Third year: On-campus study involving the completion of an extensive ship design project.
