New mechanical and civil engineering program at the Naval Construction Battalion Center
The Gulfport Shipbuilding Battalion Center launches the only mechanical and civil engineering program on the coast.
The program is available not only to Seabees, but also to local civilians. The partnership allows students to take their undergraduate courses at MGCCC and transfer to the Civil Engineering program at the University of Norwich.
The average cost is $ 250 for active duty and $ 375 per semester for local civilians.
The program is unique to enable civilians and active duty to learn together, but also to help sailors advance to the rank of officer without leaving the military. Navy College Regional Programs Advisor Dr. Darlene Davis said, “Before this program and initiative, to be a part of the Seabee community, there was nothing like they could go from enlisted to officer. “
The program starts this fall. If you would like to apply, contact the Navy College office or contact the University of Norwich.
