A “highly specialized” private academy, Webb Institute offers a single “prestigious” degree program in naval architecture and marine engineering. By all accounts, this tiny school does “an excellent job of preparing students with the technical skills, knowledge, and work ethic to succeed in the marine field.” The “rigorous” academic program comes with a notoriously “heavy workload,” as students master structural engineering, mechanical engineering, systems design, and other fields related to ship architecture. A current undergrad admits, “This is the hardest I’ve worked my whole life and passing with a C is considered a success.”
The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.
