The article focuses on port engineers in the U.S. Navy. Without the advice of their port engineers, most Navy commanding officers cannot envision conducting ship maintenance. Six or more years at sea in an operational licensed engineering position, a U.S. Coast Guard license of 3rd assistant engineer or higher a bachelor's degree in engineering is needed to be port engineers. Navy port engineers are vital and cost-effective with today's short-duration ship-maintenance availabilities.
