Marine Technology

Experience life on the sea and prepare for a rewarding career in marine science.

Dreaming of a job on the water? A degree in Marine Technology opens the door to a world of careers doing just that.  As one of the ONLY programs of its kind in the country, you’ll gain real-world, hands-on experience ranging from operating small boats to working with scientific equipment.

What you learn in the classroom, like the basics of marine biology, oceanography, instrumentation and computer systems, is then applied in the field aboard our two research vessels, the 135-ft R/V Cape Hatteras and the 53-ft R/V Martech. By graduation, you will have acquired 32 days of training at sea and countless days on the Cape Fear River.
