On-Campus Recruiting

Hello and welcome to The California Maritime Academies "On Campus Recruiting Program"

We are a small campus of The California State University system in Vallejo, CA. We have a student body of 1100+ students majoring in Business Administration, Marine Transportation, Marine Engineering Technology, Facilites Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering, and Global Studies and Maritime Affairs.

In addition to a Bachelor of Science Degree, our Marine Transportation, Marine Engineering Technology, and a portion of our Mechanical Engineering students are eligible for a US Coast Guard License.

Our Facilities Engineering Technology students and a portion of out Mechanical Engineering students receive their CPE-IT certificate (Certified Plant Engineer in Training).

Beyond the Bachelor's degree we currently offer a Master's Degree in Engineering and Transportation Management.

We believe the unique small school setting and practical hands on training gained at The California State University Maritime Academy make our students ideal candidates for employers. We invite you to participate in our "On-Campus Recruitment Program" and experience it for yourself.
