CURRICULUM FOCUS
United States Naval Academy Engineering Program
UDC Contributor

Aspiring engineers who want to serve their country will be hard-pressed to find a stronger fit than the U.S. Naval Academy. The institution offers programs in electrical and computer engineering, mechanical engineering, naval architecture and ocean engineering, weapons and systems engineering, and aerospace engineering. All put a premium on learning skills that equip graduates to be productive members of the U.S. Navy or U.S. Marines following graduation, though some go into civilian careers at the end of their mandatory service time. USNA considers hands-on experiences a vital component of an engineering education. For ocean engineers, this might mean studying wave mechanics in the Academy’s state-of-the-art hydromechanics lab. Aerospace engineers might serve a summer internship with a defense contractor such as Boeing or Lockheed Martin. All engineering majors complete a capstone senior design project and present it during a well-attended, day-long event in the spring. Past teams have built an energy-efficient ship to take supplies to small Caribbean islands and designed cyclone shelters for people in Bangladesh using local materials. These meaningful projects clearly go beyond your typical resume bullet point.

The 338-acre campus, affectionately known as “The Yard,” is located in Annapolis, Md., where the Severn River meets the Chesapeake Bay. As a National Historic Site, it attracts more than a million visitors annually. The crypt of Revolutionary War hero John Paul Jones rests beneath the Academy Chapel. Monuments throughout the tree-shaded campus honor the bravery of military men and women, and buildings and walkways feature the names of famous graduates. All students reside in campus housing.

What are the online learning and extension/adult learning opportunities?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

Classes utilize technology for learning and communication purposes, but USNA does not offer online or distance-education programs. And while the institution itself does not award graduate degrees, select students secure scholarships to further their studies elsewhere. (The Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, is a popular choice.) Some continue immediately after graduation, while others return to school following their service obligation. Highly qualified students even may be able to start during their senior year at USNA.

What are the athletic highlights?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

Any competitions against the United States Military Academy at West Point always generate campus-wide interest. Rivalry reaches its height in the annual football game as they battle to take home the Commander-in-Chief’s Trophy. The institution prioritizes physical fitness for all students, so besides fielding a large variety of varsity teams in NCAA Division I, the school offers many club sports. Fencing, ice hockey, or powerlifting anyone?

What are the school's academic highlights?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

STEM fields dominate at the Naval Academy in order to meet the high-tech needs of the Navy. The institution has particular strength in electrical and mechanical engineering. Regardless of major (even English, political science, and history), all students receive a Bachelor of Science degree because of the technical content of the core curriculum. Leadership training alongside academic courses prepares students (known as midshipmen) for active duty after graduation. The U.S. Navy fully funds tuition in exchange for this post-graduation service.
