As a SUNY Maritime College alumni, Richard Merhige, President of AME, was asked to sit on the shore-side engineering panel during SUNY’s Annual Fall Industry Panel. He sat alongside prominent SUNY grads, Dr. Charles R. Cushing from Cushing & Company and Michael Haeser from the Director of District Energy System for Columbia University in the City of New York. The informative discussion covered everything from career advice, maritime job opportunities, and the future of the industry and was well received by the Junior and Senior SUNY students In attendance.

“Having industry leaders connect with our students is an important component of the quality educational experience at SUNY Maritime.  The college’s newly adopted strategic plan includes interaction between the college, the students, and industry leaders as an educational necessity in order to meet the challenges of the future and produce adaptable and nimble graduates.” RADM Michael A. Alfultis, Ph.D, SUNY Maritime
