Marine and ocean engineers design a variety of equipment used on modern sea-fairing vessels. These professionals ofter employment with the United States government, in particular the Armed Services working with ships and onboard equipment maintained by the Navy and Coast Guard. Engineers in this capacity perform an integral service in assisting men and women to effectively guard America's borders and protect her interests abroad.
nstallation of Equipment
Marine engineers are responsible for supervising the installation of equipment onboard ships. The equipment can vary by specialization; for example, engineers may supervise the installation of electrical equipment on a ship if that engineer has designed the equipment and wishes to ensure that its installation does not run into problems.
Once all equipment has been installed on a vessel, ocean engineers inspect the ship to ensure all systems are functioning properly. The engineer is often the final check to ensure the ship meets all safety protocols before its initial launch.
