Program Fact Sheet

The San Jacinto College Maritime Program, just outside of Houston, Texas offers United States Coast Guard (USCG) (NMC)-approved and internationally-recognized Standards for Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW) maritime training and deck-level coursework for all professional mariners from the entry-level deckhand on an inland towboat to Unlimited Tonnage Masters on the world’s largest ships and everything in between. Engineering courses are available from engine room fundamentals to Qualified Member of the Engineering Department (QMED), Designated Duty engineer (DDE), to Chief Engineer.

Our staff consists of USCG Approved Ship Masters, Chief Engineers, former US Navy, Merchant Marine Officers and skilled technicians with more than a century of combined experience who make the learning experience at San Jac Maritime both effective and enjoyable.  When our new, waterfront, multiple simulator Maritime Education Complex is complete, a total of over 80 USCG and STCW approved courses are planned.

Texas's first associate degree maritime transportation program

Launched in the fall semester of 2012 and at the request of local industry for a higher quality and a more well-rounded entry- level professional mariner, San Jacinto College is home to the Associate Degree in Maritime Transportation that combines USCG and STCW-approved maritime training with the college-level academics required of an associate degree.

Our goal is to provide new mariners to the industry with practical knowledge in the areas of math, science, and English that most closely relates to their maritime career path.
