Here we are compiling a list of all of the schools where you can learn boat design, systems, building and repair. The programs range from 6-month intensives and vocational training to professional degrees in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering. If you’re more interested in short-term, specialized courses and topics, great! Check out our Classes & Courses HERE. Our goal is to create one, current resource where people interested in pursuing further education can go and find what they’re looking for.
Until we have a better system, these schools have been organized by country. We try to keep the links current, but sites change all of the time and it’s not always possible. If there’s a broken link, or if there is school missing from this list, please let me know. Contact HERE.
