    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

    S and global commercial maritime interests The pertinence of Coast Guard ship design to cadets is obvious and is related to the Program constituents within the USCG Naval Engineering community The pertinence of commercial ship design to cadets is related to the Program constituents within the USCG Marine Safety Engineering Prevention community and the Coast Guard s regulatory oversight responsibilities within the world of commercial vessels During the year long ship design faculty advisors to the teams effectively serve in the role of engineering supervisors During the year each team submits approximately twenty formal design submittals or reports Each report covers a particular aspect of the design of the ship such as hull design general arrangements propulsion damaged stability electrical plant model testing ship motions structures or crewing The reports are highly technical in nature both in terms of writing style and content Students are expected to use strong professional technical writing to present their design decisions accompanied by adequate analysis and consideration of rules and or standards During this ship design process and the associated close interaction with faculty cadets develop a wealth of technical skills professional abilities and communication competencies of undeniable value to cadets future USCG and civilian careers of all types Arctic Offshore Support Vessel OSV 12 13 Three teams of senior NA ME students were tasked with each designing a fleet of offshore support vessels These vessels are intended to support exploration drilling operations off the coast of Alaska as such they must be capable of transiting long distances working in extreme environmental conditions and performing a variety of missions Additionally designs are to incorporate the use of green energy technologies which will minimize the vessels carbon footprint and preserve the pristine beauty of Alaska s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge These design concepts were submitted to the 2013 SNAME James A Lisnyk International Student Ship Design Competition In addition one of these designs received an award at the 2013 SNAME New England Section Student Paper Competition Medium Endurance Cutter WMXX 12 13 Three teams of senior NA ME students were tasked with each designing a concept vessel to resolve gaps in capabilities currently experienced by the aging fleet of medium endurance cutters In addition the WMXX serves as a low cost risk mitigator to more expensive naval acquisition projects The modern WMXX can be compared to a small naval combatant with the following discriminators enhanced range improved sea keeping extended fatigue service life and operation in low threat spectrum Each design aims to achieve the traditional Coast Guard missions with an additional caveat one vessel has disaster response capabilities one vessel is ice capable and the last vessel has superior sea keeping characteristics These design concepts were submitted to the 2013 SNAME James A Lisnyk International Student Ship Design Competition In addition one of these designs received an award at the 2013 SNAME New England Section Student Paper Competition Roll On Roll Off Ferry Design 11 12 Two teams of senior NA ME students were
