Small Craft Design

The Small Craft Design program leads to an Associate of Science degree that is offered jointly by Maine Maritime Academy in Castine and The Landing School of Boatbuilding and Design in Kennebunkport, Maine. Students spend one year at Maine Maritime Academy as residential students in Castine and one year in the Yacht Design program at The Landing School in Kennebunkport. Students must meet admission criteria for both institutions to be accepted into this degree program.

The objectives of the Small Craft Design major are to provide students with a structured learning environment in which they can become knowledgeable and proficient in the practical application of the fundamental principles of small craft design, and develop the skills to communicate effectively with other industry professionals by graphical and other methods as appropriate.

Students complete one cooperative education assignment in small vessel operations or small craft design during their full year at Maine Maritime Academy.

Participation in the Regiment is optional when enrolled in this major.
