MTE 1052
2&4 Cycle Outboard Theory
This is a course in basic outboard
engine survival skills. Starting with an
introduction into the basics of two and
four cycle outboard theory and design;
students learn how these engines are
built and operate so that they may
better understand upkeep and basic
troubleshooting. The lecture material
will be pesented via Desire to Learn
(D2L) in the form of PowerPoint lectures,
videos, Podcast and various reading
assignments. After completing a lesson
using D2L students will meet in Marine
Engineering Laboratory for a face-to-
face review of the lesson and hands
on training. The hands on portion of
this course will cover techniques for
recovering a sunken outboard, routine
and annual maintenance, plus basic
troubleshooting techniques useful for
helping the mariner return safely home
from sea.
MTE 1053C
2-Cycle Outboard Engine Theory
This course is not ordinarily counted
in the Associate in Arts degree.
A basic, two-cycle and four-cycle
gasoline outboard engine course in
terminology, fasteners, hand tools,
measuring instruments and special tools.
Laboratory consists of each student--
individually--disassembling, inspecting
and assembling outboard power heads.
Using manufacturers’ literature, each
student in lab must submit a written
report setting forth every part name,
function, condition, part number
and cost, as well as special tools or
procedures used on each power head.
MTE 1302C
Adv Fbrgls Boat & Access Const
This is the continuation course for boat
and accessory construction with the final
goal being that of finished products.
The course covers flat molding, mold
construction, surface finishes, color
matching following repairs, use of a
chopper gun, vacuum bag construction
and ship yard surveys.
MTE 2652C
AdvancedWelding Techniques
This course is not ordinarily counted in
the Associate in Arts degree. This course
provides practice in advanced welding
techniques in TIG and MIG welding
and includes repairing aluminum parts
on marine engines. Provides practice
of skills in vertical overhead welding
using destructive and nondestructive
testing. Emphasis is upon welding
design, construction and special welding
MTE 1400C
Applied Marine Electricity
This course is not ordinarily counted
in the Associate in Arts degree. Basic
electrical theory for A/C & D/C circuits in
marine systems. Application of electrical
theory to the generating, starting and
auxiliary circuits of the marine engine.
Emphasis on theory of operation and
repair of equipment in the field with
special attention to marine problems in a
salt-water environment.
MTE 1811
Basic Seamanship
This course is not ordinarily counted
in the Associate in Arts degree.
Fundamentals of small boat handling,
chart reading, rules of the road, rigging,
safety and boat licensing. Hands-on
plotting with local charts, practical
knots and other rope work. Weather
permitting on the water practice.
MTE 2160C
Diesel Fuel Injection Systems
A study of variation and design and
principals of operation of fuel injection
systems used on diesel engines.
Using the assembled system on a
wide range of diesel engines from
8 horsepower to 1800 horsepower.
Diesel injector pump and governor
inspection, (electronic and mechanical)
disassembly, repair and reinstallation.
Introduction to regulations, standards
and recommended practices by the
American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC).
MTE 1371C
Fbrglss Boat Repair & Maint
This course is designed to introduce
the basic materials and tools used in
fiberglass boat construction and repair.
The students will work on projects
designed to simulate an actual boat hull
in order to demonstrate the proper use
of a variety of materials on a smaller
scale than typical. As students build their
skills they will find that future, larger
scale, projects are easily accomplished
using the same techniques. This class
will include lecture and lab on fibers
and forms, resins, gel coats, entry level
construction and repair techniques, and
building molds and plugs.
MTE 1301
Fiberglassing Theory
This course is not ordinarily counted
in the Associate in Arts degree. This
course introduces the student to the
care, handling and safety of fiberglass
resins and instruction in materials and
equipment planning using U.S. Coast
Guard regulations for boat designing.
MTE 1651C
Gas and ElectricWelding
This course is not ordinarily counted in
the Associate in Arts degree. Provides
basic welding knowledge and skills
necessary to make repairs on ferrous
metals used in the marine industry.
Emphasis on metallurgy and uses of
metals. The course is designed for the
student with no welding background
and includes the safety and theory of
gas welding, metal cutting, brazing
with brass and silver alloys, AC/DC
ARC welding stick, and introduction to
aluminum TIG and MIG welding.
MTE 1300C
Intro to Fiberglass Boat Manuf
This course is not ordinarily counted in
the Associate in Arts degree.
A Lecture-Laboratory course on
fiberglass boat manufacturing from
cleaning & preparing a mold, gel coating
and laying up the hull with the stringers
& transom. Manufacturing of decks and
floors will also be covered and if time
allows demonstrated.
