The California Maritime Academy is one of the leading educational institutions, recognized for excellence in the business, engineering, operations, and policy of the transportation and related industries of the Pacific Rim and beyond.? The Tour of the Maritime Academy will consist of boarding the 500 foot Training Ship â??Golden Bear??? which serves as the primary training platform on which cadets apply technological skills introduced in the classroom.? We will also be visiting the campus state of the art Simulation Center facility which includes a Steam and Navigational Simulator which provides a realistic engine room setting with sound and heat for simulation of all aspects of high pressure steam operations, including all auxiliary equipment.? Students utilize a variety of control consoles and realworld equipment in learning to manage all manner of casualties to the â??vessel??? as well as conducting coordinated system training at various levels of experience, various shipping companies also use the Simulator in their own training programs.? All undergraduate engineering students spend approximately 100 hours in the Simulator.
