BandB - thanks for the detailed response

He's been researching the programs for a quite a while and found similar info from your post.

SUNY is on our list as they are one of the few schools that offer a an electrical engineering degree with the licensure, while all the others offer a marine engineering technology degree. If he goes the MET route will most likely stay closer to home (and in-state tuition!) at Galveston.

Webb is a more unique degree program (engineering and naval architecture) that if he could get into would be fantastic and he could get license after grad if he wanted.

My son started as a DD in the Oil Patch but soon found out the real bucks were out on the briny sea. Months at sea, (the longest, nine months with MSC) but the money is worth it.
