Winter Work Term 2017


Our Winter Work term is a mandatory program for all students that takes place every January and February where our students spread out across the globe to gain real life working experience.

Freshmen work alongside ship fitters and welders in shipyards. Sophomores serve as student observers aboard ocean going ships to gain hands-on understanding and appreciation for the relationships between  the marine environment, the shipping industry, the ship’s operators, and the ship’s design. Juniors and seniors network and apply themselves in design and engineering offices around the world.

Read our students’ first-hand experiences!
