Marine Engineering and Shipyard Management Program
The Marine Engineering and Shipyard Management program prepares Midshipmen as officers in the U.S. Merchant Marine; provides an engineering education that prepares them for a wide variety of professional positions in ship construction and repair, operations, marketing, maintenance and survey; and imparts to them a solid engineering education that permits them to pursue graduate study and/or become licensed as a Professional Engineer, should they so choose. This curriculum puts particular focus on the management of ship construction and repair.
An important element of the Marine Engineering and Shipyard management program is the design experience interwoven throughout a student’s four years, culminating in the capstone design project in senior year. The student participates as part of a team tasked with developing a ship construction or ship repair project. The project is spread over two terms and finishes with a presentation of the final design to a panel of faculty and invited industry professionals. The Marine Engineering and Shipyard Management program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
To enroll in this program a Midshipman must have a CQPA of at least 2.67 at the end of the 4th class (plebe) year.
