    The most well known is Naval Engineering for support and operation of CG vessel boat assets The second is Prevention for regulation and oversight of the commercial marine industry While there are many internship possibilities from different departments this program is limited to NA ME internships that are directly related to Naval Engineering and Prevention career paths The NA ME specific locations are Engineering Logistics Center CG Yard Project Manager s Representatives Office Pascagoula and Marine Safety Center Eligibility NA ME internships are open only to cadets who are NA ME majors Hosting units expect a foundation of NA ME ability at least on par with that offered by the Principles of Naval Architecture course taken during the 2 c junior year spring semester In addition there are several minimum basic grade and military performance requirements for eligibility Simply meeting these requirements does not guarantee an internship In the view of NA ME faculty a candidate must have demonstrated that he she has the academic and personal maturity to accept and successfully complete an engineering project s with little hour by hour or even day by day direct supervision Demonstration of academic perseverance and self motivation is expected Demonstration of professional behavior is also expected Benefits Other institutions that offer NA ME programs often combine the classroom education with actual NA ME engineering experiences Due to the time constraints of a military college setting we are unable to fit these experiences in during the semester or over a winter session as others sometimes do Instead we are lucky that the USCGA NA ME internships can occur during the summer training programs Internships are a wonderful opportunity to do some or all of the following Meet and work alongside some of the best NA ME professionals in the U S Develop
