Have a few questions for Engineers involved in the Maritime industry. After a failed business I decided to go back to school
at 35 years old. I'm majoring in Chemical Engineering. I'm also taking sailing classes
at my school's sailing center.
I'm pursuing a degree in Chemical Engineering because it seems to be the broadest discipline of the field and would make a wider array of jobs available when I graduate. Plus, there doesn't seem to be a lot of specific Marine
Engineering programs out there.
I'd like to hear from any type of Engineer
that works in the Maritime industry about their job, education, and anything else that they think is relevant to the discussion.
By the way, I currently attend Orange Coast College in Costa Mesa, California
and am planning to transfer to UC Santa Barbara for their Chemical Engineering program which is the 9th rated Chem program in the nation.
Thanks in advance for all your replies.
