But as more people have begun learning about marine engineering and its many applications, the license has fallen out of favor and is now being increasingly targeted by big-name companies.
In 2018, the U.S. Marine Corps issued nearly 300,000 marine engineers licenses, more than double the number of the year before.
This year, the Marine Engineering Licensing Program (MELP) plans to roll out a new program for Marine engineers, which it hopes will help increase the number and quality of marine engineers.
“The MELP program is designed to address the current licensing shortage,” the program’s executive director, Matt Brown, told TechCrunch.
“As we work toward the goal of increasing the number, quality, and consistency of marine engineering licenses, we are developing a more flexible licensing program to help us attract the best engineers in the world.”
The MHLP program will allow anyone who holds a marine engineering license, as well as those with a high school diploma or less, to apply for the Marine Engine License, which is a prerequisite for any engineering degree.
The license is the highest level of engineering license in the U
