I would like to work as a Third Assistant Engineer on a vessel preferably out of NY or work as a marine engineer, design and/or testing equipment.
I have been working for the NYC Department of Education for the past 5 years. I started as a cleaner working on a winter cleaning job and then was recruited by another custodial engineer to work as a handyman. I've worked as a handyman at 3 schools in the city, helping maintain low pressure boilers, air handling units, pumps, air compressors, radiators, fans, etc. I've been responsible for making repairs around the building including work in plumbing, electrical and carpentry. I also worked for an engineering firm in Manhattan for about a year. I was involved in mechanical equipment testing including air handling units, pumps, fans, air terminal units, BMS controls, etc. I took part in some LEED Certification projects by testing equipment and completing energy audits.
I attained my Bachelor of Engineering degree in Marine Engineering from SUNY Maritime College in the Bronx. I also earned my Third Assistant Engineers License for Steam, Motor, and Gas Turbine Vessels of Unlimited Horsepower from the U.S. Coast Guard. While in school I trained on a steam propulsion vessel utilizing two 600# boilers. The ship was equipped with steam turbogenerators, auxiliary and emergency diesel generators, fresh water generators, a centrifugal refrigeration machine, several reciprocating refrigeration machines and marine sanitation devices.
