What is Marine Engineering?

I served eight years in the Navy as a Boiler Technician and had to complete courses in Marine Engineering during my A School. Marine Engineers are responsible for designing, operating, and maintaining main propulsion spaces on ships. Propulsion spaces would include equipment such as, boilers, forced draft blowers, dearieating feedtanks, fuel oil service pumps, bilge pumps, steam driven turbines, gas turbines, propeller shafts, and all associated piping and valves.
