If you have an unsinkable love of engineering and a passion for the water, Webb Institute may be the place for you! 

Located in Glen Cove, New York on the Long Island Sound, Webb Institute is a small, highly selective college that awards one degree–a dual Bachelor of Science in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, rated as one of the most valuable majors by Bankrate.  As a “Webbie” you will collaborate and problem solve, all while developing the skills, knowledge, and networks necessary to design what you love and make your mark on the world!

Proud to Be Un-Ranked

Written by: Lauren Carballo

Director of Admissions and Student Affairs

Our small school size and specialized program automatically exclude Webb’s from many of the U.S. News & World Report ranking lists, even if our data shows that we should rank higher than college’s at the top of those ranking lists. This article dives into how colleges that don’t fit the mold of a “typical college” are excluded. The ultimate goal is to help inform prospective students on the downfalls of such rankings, and to encourage them to choose colleges based on their own research instead of ranking lists developed from incomplete data.
