The CSR offers graduate level courses in convenient, flexible delivery formats tailored to maritime security practitioners and maritime industry and government professionals. Courses are delivered by CSR research faculty.
The objective of the above three-day course is to enable a broad base of maritime industry and government practitioners with minimal to moderate technical expertise to understand the basic technologies used in port security applications and to provide them with a basis to make informed managerial decisions regarding relevant technology-based solutions.
Students wishing to take classes for graduate credit, leading to a Graduate Certificate or a Master's Degree, should visit the Stevens Maritime Systems website at www.stevens.edu/MaritimeSystems.
Maritime Security Graduate Certificate
Maritime Security (Courses available on-campus and online via Stevens WebCampus)
The objectives of this four course, 12-credit program are to provide the student with the operational and technological skills to deal with the international safety and security issues facing the Marine Transportation System (MTS). The student's perspective may be that of a vessel or port operator, port authority, or military or governmental security agency. Risk-based analyses are performed to assess concerns related to vessel and shore labor practices, navigational security and safety including cargo (e.g., oil spills) and vessel traffic (e.g., collisions). Acoustic and electromagnetic sensor and security technologies are studied, with a focus on their application to various security threat scenarios, including terrorism, piracy, and crime.
- OE 529 Maritime Safety and Security
Maritime Safety and Security
This course introduces students to international and national safety and security issues of importance to officials in the maritime industry, including the UN International Maritime Organization, U.S. Coast Guard, vessel owners and operators, marine facility management, and Port Authorities. Risk-based analyses are performed to assess safety and security concerns related to vessel and shore labor practices, navigational safety including cargo (e.g., oil spills) and vessel traffic (e.g., collisions) movements, Maritime Domain Awareness, sensor technology, and potential terrorist activities. Students receive instruction in the procedures required for the identification, analysis, prevention, and mitigation of safety and security problems associated with the various threats to human safety, vessels, critical infrastructure, and sensitive marine environments. Students are introduced to the concepts of risk assessment and management, vessel traffic management systems, ship and port security planning, facility contingency planning, and event response planning. State, Federal, and international regulations and guidelines related to maritime safety and security are discussed. Case studies from the New York/New Jersey region and other port regions are employed in the delivery of this instruction.
- OE 560 Fundamentals of Remote Sensing
Fundamentals of Remote Sensing
This course exposes the student to the physical principles underlying remote sensing of ocean, atmosphere, and land by electromagnetic and acoustic passive and active sensors: radars, lidars, infrared and microwaves thermal sensors, sonars, sodars, infrasound/seismic detectors. Topics include fundamental concepts of electromagnetic and acoustic wave interactions with oceanic, atmospheric, and land environment, as well as with natural and man-made objects. Examples from selected sensors will be used to illustrate the information extraction process, and applications of the data for environmental monitoring, oceanography, meteorology, and security/military objectives.
- OE 628 Technologies for Maritime Security
Technologies for Maritime Security
The course is intended to acquaint students with the
underlying technologies pertaining to Maritime Safety and Security. Students will understand current technologies applicable to threat mitigation including threats from criminal activities, illegal immigration, piracy, and terrorism. The considered technologies will include: X-Ray scanning, Gamma Ray and neutron scanning, biometrics, radiation detection, Radio Frequency Identification Tags, underwater acoustic surveillance, wireless sensor networks, and infrared techniques. The physical principles of radio waves, optic and infrared waves, acoustic and seismic waves applied in these technologies will be introduced to student. The course also surveys recent developments in port protection conducted by Stevens scientists.
- OE 629 Advanced Maritime Security
Advanced Maritime Security
This course provides broad knowledge of security systems and protocols applied in the Maritime Transportation System (MTS), consistent with international and national laws and regulations. Security policies, processes and procedures are presented and illustrated by case studies. All requirements for certification for those who may be designated to perform the duties and responsibilities of a Company Security Officer (CSO) or a Vessel Security Officer (VSO), as defined in the International Ship and Port Security Code (ISPS) and the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 as part of their vessel or port responsibilities, are covered.
Credits earned in the Maritime Security Graduate Certificate program can be applied toward a Master's Degree in Maritime Systems at Stevens Institute of Technology.
