Is a maritime education valuable today?

Posted June 29, 2009, at 5:33 p.m.

The State of Maine, Maine Maritime Academy’s training vessel, has returned to port in Castine after the annual student voyage. This year’s voyage included a troubled start, as the ship’s engine lost its exhaust manifold; students learned, though, by participating in

the replacement of the part. Though Maine has a long and storied maritime tradition, does the academy still provide a marketable education? The curriculum includes technical courses that relate to engineering, manufacturing and energy, as well as maritime

education. Should more disciplines be added? Do you know anyone who attended MMA? What are they doing today?
