MAINE MARITIME ACADEMY/BATH IRON WORKS

Note: The Bath Iron Works Apprentice Program in Ship Design and Ship Production is offered only in Bath, Maine. Not all Student Life Services on the Castine campus are available in Bath, Maine.

The objective of the BIW apprenticeship is to train highly skilled, versatile, and educated mechanics and designers through both classroom instruction and hands-on experience. The program strives to develop proficiency and knowledge in:

  • Engineering principles and problem-solving techniques
  • Organizational, communication, and leadership skills
  • Trade or discipline-based skills and safe work practices

Successful completion of this program leads to the Associate of Science degree.
