The multidisciplinary engineering technology (MXET) degree plan offered on the Galveston campus has an emphasis in marine mechatronics, a multidisciplinary field that includes a combination of electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, communications, control, and marine engineering technology topics. Students interested in wireless communications, automation, instrumentation and/or robotics will gain hands-on experience with a focus on marine electronic systems in a unique, on-the-coast setting. Additionally, students graduating with this degree will be well prepared to become an electro-technology officer (ETO). In the near future, at least one ETO will be required on each sailing vessel.
