Vessel Operations prepares students for careers as licensed deck crews as well as serving as a stepping stone into management and operations positions aboard small passenger vessels and commercial towing units.
Many students choose career pathways within the passenger vessels, marine transportation, and the tug and barge industry. Students enrolled in the program experience 6 semesters of hands on and practical experience in navigation, safety training and seamanship. Students participate in a robust work based learning program that connect job shadowings, guest speakers and internships.
