|Description:||Studying on the shores of Cape Breton Island, surrounded by the rugged coastline and open waters of the Atlantic Ocean, you get the feeling there’s no other place you should be. This is especially true for those studying the opportunity-rich sector of nautical science. It’s a natural fit.
Together with the Canadian Coast Guard College (CCGC), the Bachelor of Technology (Nautical Science) is a unique program where students focus on marine safety and environmental protection. From a career in marine engineering, navigation or even as a ship’s officer, you will learn watch-keeping, environmental response procedures and search and rescue. Students gain hands-on experience as they learn to maneuver a variety of vessels in all types of sea and ice conditions. You will become comfortable operating numerous engineering systems aboard a real vessel. Systems include hydraulics, propulsion plant, air conditioning systems and electrical and electronic systems. There are also opportunities for using a state-of-the-art propulsion plant simulator and practical training at the CCG College and at sea.
