Students launching an unmanned system from a raft

About the Program

The Unmanned Maritime Systems Technology curriculum is a stackable, credentialed two-year program of study that prepares the graduate to work in jobs with titles such as Unmanned Maritime Systems specialist in career fields for shipbuilding, offshore petroleum/drilling, seafood, transportation, tourism, marine engine, or other maritime heavy industrial occupations on a space available basis. It is designed to train students for a wide range of unmanned maritime systems occupations.

This program leads to an Associate of Applied Science Degree and is preparatory for employment upon graduation from MGCCC. Where a transfer to four-year college or university is desired, a conference should be scheduled with a MGCCC advisor.

All students completing a career or technical program must complete a MGCCC Board- approved Technical Skills Attainment where applicable. Students should see an advisor for further details.
