Welcome to the CMA-SNAME Microsite!



Message from the Communications Officer:

Welcome to the California Maritime Academy Student Section of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (CMA-SNAME) website!  CMA-SNAME provides a forum for Cal Maritime Cadets where the advancement of the engineering profession as applied to the marine field can be studied and discussed. 

The CMA Student Section of SNAME was founded on May 10th. We, along with our sister Student Section at UC Berkeley, belong to the Northern California Section of SNAME. 

The purpose of CMA-SNAME is to strengthen the bond between Cal Maritime and marine engineering firms in the Bay Area. The Student Section serves as a venue where students explore naval architecture, off-shore platform structures, IMO regulatory policies, and current research & development in: ship structures, ship designs, and marine systems. CMA-SNAME also serves to expose Cal Maritime's campus and Cal Maritime's student body to the representatives of the marine engineering industry.

For more information about our activities and functions, please feel free to explore our website. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me or any other CMA-SNAME officer via the “Leadership” tab.
