A maritime college (or academy) is a technical school, focused on teaching practical skills which can be put to use on the ocean or in industries related to the ocean. In addition to training sailors, it also offers classes in maritime law, international business, engineering, technology, and many other fields directly related to careers on the high seas. Graduates of such an academy are prepared for careers in shipping, the merchant marine, or another maritime industry of choice.[1]
