Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME)
Webb Institute is home to one of the nation's most prominent Naval Architecture Programs in the country. The school was founded in 1889 by William H. Webb, who was the first signature on the original SNAME charter over 120 years ago. The student section officially formed in 2005, and is proud to be still going strong with one of the largest student memberships in the country. Our Webb Student Section encourages Society membership among students fostering their professional development and growth. Today Mr. Webb's legacy lives on in the students at Webb Institute in their passion and dedication to the industry as reflected in their continual activity in the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers programs and regional/annual meetings.
