The California Maritime Academy is a leading educational institution within the California State University system recognized for excellence in the business, engineering, operations, and policy of the transportation and related industries of the Pacific Rim and beyond.

Located in Vallejo, California, California Maritime Academy (Cal Maritime) is a unique and specialized campus of The California State University that offers students bachelor’s degrees in business administration, facilities engineering technology, global studies and maritime affairs, marine engineering technology, marine transportation, and mechanical engineering. Cal Maritime is one of only seven degree-granting maritime academies in the United States — and the only one on the West Coast. A specialized education combining classroom instruction, experiential learning, and professional development prepare students for successful careers in international business and logistics, maritime policy, engineering, technology, or in the maritime and transportation industries. International travel, training, and experiences — including a two-month international training cruise onboard the Training Ship GOLDEN BEAR — prepare students in fields that are increasingly global in nature.

The city of Vallejo and the surrounding area offer residents a unique combination of bedroom community, suburban quietude, waterfront paradise, and foothill vistas.
