History

The State University of New York Maritime College's history began over 125 years ago. In response to industry demand, more Americans were being encouraged to enter maritime careers. The Governor of New York applied for a training ship and, on December 14, 1874, the USS St. Mary's arrived in New York harbor and became the home of the first commercial maritime institution in the United States. The initial 26 students aboard the St. Mary's, known then as the New York Nautical School, became the first class of what has evolved into the State University of New York Maritime College. The second USS was a sloop-of-war in the United States Navy. ...


As the school prospered, it became a land-based, degree-granting college, finding a permanent home in 1934 at the Maritime College's present Throggs Neck campus. One of Franklin D. Roosevelt's last acts as governor or New York State was to sign the act turning Fort Schuyler and the Throggs Neck peninsula over to what was then the New York State Merchant Marine Academy for use as a shore-based facility of higher education. The College is one of the original institutions incorporated into the State University of New York system in 1948 and was the first of its kind to enroll women in 1972. FDR redirects here. ...

The College's primary ship, Empire State VI, a 563 foot (172.2 m) vessel driven by a 17,160 horsepower (13 MW) steam turbine engine, is the best-equipped training ship in the United States. Originally built as the SS Oregon, a break-bulk cargo freighter for States Lines, it was converted by the Maritime Administration and delivered to the College for use as a training ship in 1990. The Empire State is host to cadet watches and work parties during the academic year, and departs each May with the college's cadets on board for "Summer Sea Term," a two-month training voyage. Athens, Dublin, Barbados, Antwerp, Naples, Barcelona, Genoa, London, Talinn, Istanbul, Kiel, Copenhagen, and Dubrovnik are some of the recent ports of call for the Empire State VI.

During the Summer Sea Term cadets are split into Deck and Engineering disciplines, which are further partitioned into three divisions each. These divisions form the basis of shipboard life during Summer Sea Term, and follow a rotating schedule of work, classes, and watchstanding. Cadets must complete three Sea Terms, each with progressively more responsibilities and higher expectations. On Third Class 'cruise,' the first of three, the cadets are given their first exposure to the rigors and requirements of shipboard life. They perform basic tasks and are trained in the most fundamental aspects of their respective disciplines. By the end of their First Class 'cruise,' the last they are required to complete, the cadets are expected to be able to competently perform most of the routine duties of a Third Mate or Third Assistant Engineer on watch.
