San Jacinto College District’s new Maritime Technology and Training Center is a state-of-the-art facility that meets the demands of maritime industry professionals. The 13-acre site is located at the Bayport Terminal in the Port of Houston. Its location in its proximity to actual ship navigation lanes and visibility to the port industries is ideal.
Taking advantage of their long-standing industry partnerships, San Jacinto College partnered with the Port of Houston to create a facility that fosters the relationship and provides much needed educational and hands-on training for students and industry mariners.
The Maritime Technology and Training Center facility is a showpiece of maritime education, rivaling training facilities in the private sector. The building’s public multi-functional areas include a lobby, reception area and multi-purpose rooms. Outside industry or trade groups may utilize these spaces for training or conferences. The building’s instructional spaces range from traditional classrooms (meeting U.S. Coast Guard Standards) to highly specialized simulation and engineering technology rooms. Ancillary spaces associated with instruction include instructor offices and support spaces as well as a galley and lunch room.
The U.S. Coast Guard approved aquatic training pool includes a training platform, dressing rooms, lockers, scuba gear and equipment storage areas. Water depth range ranges from 4-0” to 12’6”.
