"It's tough but real. The academic component mixed with the regimental element provides significant "real world" learning situations that other 18, 19, 20 year olds simply do not get. The tactile learning environment isn't for everyone - however IF you want to develop skills that pay dividends for the rest of your life in all aspects of your life - there is very few better places to spend you money"

"This School prepares you for life on all levels. It teaches you not only your major's content but how to be an effective leader and follower. You develop relationships like no other school, where one hand means support for one another. We disagree but ultimately we are here for each other. I would not be where I am today if I didn't attend this school. If you have the opportunity to attend do it. It's a choice you will not regret. Join the regiment of cadets, do the work and you will be successful. My degree is In Marine Environmental science and I felt very prepared and knowledgeable moving out in the world. The teachers are fantastic. This school is not an easy one. It takes hard work to get though, but anything worth having isn't easy. A degree from this school is worth the hard work on all levels. Class of 2005"
Outstanding in every way

"Many years ago I chose SUNY Maritime College. It was a wonderful experience. My classmates, even after 53 years, remain great friends and our memories are always highly positive. I graduated as a Marine Engineer. I graduated during the heat of the Vietnam war so I sailed delivering supplies for three years and upgraded my license each year. Then joined a major engineering firm and moved ahead rapidly because of the hands on practical training I received at the school. I was accepted into NYU for my MBA and went onto be a board level management consulting partner at a prestigious Management Consulting firm. I owe everything to the Maritime College. I became the CEO of four different firms and never forgot the wonderful college life and training that this undergraduate school provided. I would hire a Maritime graduate knowing that they would be a cut above.."

Best career decision I've made thus far!!!!"

"The International Marine Transportation Graduate Program at SUNY Maritime College gives a comprehensive view of the shipping industry and its impact on the global economy. Three endorsements are available as part of the program; advanced charter parties, security, and supply chain management. The program is well-rounded, with core courses in ship management and vessel operations, terminal management, ship finance, economics of international trade, information systems, and logistics. There is an excellent selection of elective courses, including the aforementioned 'endorsement' courses, as well as courses aimed at broadening one's understanding of cultural differences (a key issue in international marine transportation), and courses in the recognition and prevention of piracy and terrorism at sea. Courses are small, and professors are accessible. Students may take the Master's program in conjunction with the US Coast Guard Deck Licensing Program. Upon graduation, license candidates sit for USCG license exams for a 'Third Mate of Vessels of Unlimited Tonnage' rating. Job placement for license students is approximately 100% from SUNY Maritime College."

"SUNY Maritime has a tremendous undergraduate program, offering a smattering of maritime and oceanographic courses to students at a great rate. Not only that, but being located at the base of the Throgs Neck in historic Fort Schuyler provides them the ability to offer their students access to New York City and all of the wonders encompassed within. Students can receive state-based tuition discounts, or join the regiment of midshipman as part of the NROTC program their, wit the ability to commission into the Navy or the Marine Corps. Most popular however, is the USCG Licensing program, where students spend time at sea oboard the Empire State, working towards their USCG Third Asst Engineer or Third Mate licenses, where they will endure seven USCG-administered examinations before they graduate. The graduate program is slowly building its online repertoire and offers students the ability to broaden their academic or professional knowledge in the logistics industry, for everyone from undergraduate students to freight forwarders, charterers, brokers and marine insurers. A great location, great faculty and a great academic experience, all at an in-state tuition, it's the place to be!"
