By: ptcadminacess



In response to the anticipated demand for engine officers, the Malayan Colleges of Laguna’s MapĂșa-PTC College of Maritime Education and Training (CMET) is proud to announce that the Commission on Higher Education (CHED) has approved the CMET Bridging Program for its BS Marine Engineering track.

Through the Bridging Program, graduates of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Electronics Communications Engineering can now pursue BS Marine Engineering (BS MarE) studies, thus addressing the increasing global demand for competent engineers onboard. By retrofitting land-based engineering programs to sea-based application, CMET hopes to produce more well-rounded Marine Engineers as BSME, BSEE and BSECE graduates possess competencies in design and development; production and operations; and electronics, instrumentation and automation; which complement the skills required for Ship Operations. The Bridging Program is expected to be implemented by 2018.
