Careers in Maritime Technology

The Maritime Technology Program at Kingsborough Community College trains men and women for marine related careers ashore and at sea.

Graduates are employed in a variety of shore-side positions including marina managers and service technicians, vessel service and repair, boat retail and wholesale sales, equipment sales and environmental consulting.

At sea positions focus on employment in the “Brown Water” or near shore industry, including tug and towing, municipal and private ferries, local, state and federal law enforcement, firefighting, private yacht, dining and entertainment vessels.

Each year, some students, upon graduation, decide to continue their education by enrolling in one of the four-year state Maritime Academies across the Nation.
