Department of Engineering Technology Sea Training II (Commercial Cruise), Co-Ops and Careers
Commercial Cruise for Marine Engineering Technology Majors (Internship at Sea Opportunities)
All students in the Marine Engineering Technology (MET) degree program are required to sail on one sixty-day commercial cruise. Commercial cruise is completed during the sophomore summer after successfully passing the first training cruise aboard the Training Ship GOLDEN BEAR during the freshman summer. Cruise cadets sail aboard an actual working commercial vessel to gain hands-on training while experiencing life at sea in their chosen career. There are many exciting commercial cruise opportunities available around the world on all types of vessel platforms. For example, MET students in the past have secured commercial cruise billets with the following companies (not a complete list):
