Winter Work Term 2021


During Winter Work term, 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.

Many thanks to the Webb alumni who reached out and offered jobs for Webb’s upcoming Winter Work Term. The upperclassmen were able to secure either remote or on site work, and all of the freshmen were placed in shipyards. The sophomores will not be sailing until the summer of 2021, but a good number of them were able to find work this winter in the maritime community. Thank you Jake Genauer ’10 and Vicky Dlugokecki ’88 for all your efforts.
