Welcome to the website for the Virginia Tech student section of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME).

SNAME is the professional organization serving to advance the art, science, and practice of naval architecture, shipbuilding and marine engineering. While most members at Virginia Tech are pursuing a degree in ocean engineering, membership is open to any student currently seeking an engineering degree in a related field.

Throughout the year, VT SNAME hosts social events, technical presentations, and company visits in order to promote strong relationships with fellow students, learn more about the naval architecture and ocean engineering field, and to present internship and job opportunities for SNAME members.

If you have any questions about the VT section of SNAME, please contact Chair Mark Shepheard at snamevt@gmail.com
