The Landing School in Arundel, Maine is developing an associate’s degree program in marine systems technology.

“The advances being made in marine systems technology every day are extraordinary,” said Barry Acker, president of The Landing School, in a statement. “Our associate’s degree program will produce systems technicians who will be able to understand and further develop emerging technologies.”

The school is proceeding with national accreditation for the two-year curriculum, which includes advanced topics in electronics, refrigeration, electricity and industry software.

The school will continue to offer its non-degree marine systems program. Students who spend one year studying marine systems will receive a diploma and will be prepared for the job market, according to the school. Those that continue for the second year will graduate with a series of certifications and an associate’s degree.

The Landing School is an accredited school, educating those interested in pursuing a career in the marine industry, in boat design, building and systems of recreational and commercial vessels.
