Webb Institute Named One of America’s Best Colleges by The Princeton Review

The Princeton Review named Webb Institute as one of the top 389 best colleges for 2024, standing out among more than 4,800 universities across the United States. Webb is featured in The Princeton Review’s annual college guide, “The Best 389 Colleges,” which lists top-tier colleges in academics, student life, and campus environment. 

Webb is one of the most selective colleges in the U.S., with an acceptance rate of 19%. Known for its rigorous academic program in naval architecture and marine engineering, Webb graduates attend top graduate schools like Harvard and MIT, build careers with leadership positions in the corporate world, launch their own successful companies, or design innovative ships and yachts. 

“We are honored to be included in The Princeton Review’s list of the best colleges,” said Webb President Mark Martecchini. “This recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our faculty, students, and staff. We provide our students with a world-class engineering education that prepares them to lead and succeed in their chosen career paths.” 

Webb provides a full tuition scholarship to every student and additional financial support for those with demonstrated need. This earns Webb a consistent ranking as one of The Princeton Review’s “Best-Value” colleges in the United States. Webb has been featured in The Princeton Review’s “Best Colleges” list for many of the years since the publication’s inception in 1992.

Explaining the selection process, Robert Franek, Editor in Chief of the Princeton Review stated, “We’ve curated the 389 best colleges in the United States, focusing on extraordinary academics. Our 50 ranking lists cover everything from career services, financial aid, campus life, to student experiences. Webb offers a rigorous academic program at an exceptional value; Webb graduates are highly sought after in the maritime industry, making Webb such a unique place.”  

Webb’s unique Winter Work internships give students hands-on industry experience, with work/travel opportunities across the United States and around the world. Webb has a 100% placement rate in graduate school or industry, at high-ranking salaries. 

Webb is honored by the Princeton Review’s recognition and looks forward to hosting Princeton Review on campus this fall to get a better understanding of what makes Webb a special place.
