Welcome to Webb Institute!
Meet the Winter Work Bloggers!
While other colleges are taking a long winter's nap, Webb students are gaining valuable experience in the real world. It's called "Winter Work," and it happens every January and February for every student. Freshmen work alongside ship fitters and welders in shipyards. Sophomores plow the oceans, realizing that crews will have to live and work on their future designs. Juniors and seniors network and apply themselves in design offices. Like the maritime industry, our Winter Work experience is global with more and more students finding themselves overseas with jobs in countries including Antarctica, British Columbia, Canada, Cyprus, Denmark, Finland, Italy, the Netherlands, South Korea and the United Arab Emirates.
Webb Institute's Winter Work experience is unlike any other. Read first-hand accounts of our students' Winter Work, or check out where they are working this year.

Webb Institute: An Engineering College Unlike Any Other
Ever wondered what goes into designing an America’s Cup yacht, U.S. Navy destroyer, or a cruise liner? Webb Institute is a four-year, fully accredited engineering college that has specialized in naval architecture and marine engineering for the last 125 years. Founded in 1889 by prominent New York shipbuilder William H. Webb, the Institute has produced the nation's leading ship designers for over a century. Every Webb student receives a full-tuition scholarship founded by Mr. Webb and continued by the generous contributions of alumni/ae, friends of Webb, parents, corporations, and foundations.
