NETSCo Sponsors SNAME Student Design/Build Competition

NETSCo sponsored the annual Student Design / Build Competition at the SNAME Maritime Conference 2022 in Houston, Texas. Approximately 150 students participated in the competition. Congratulations to our winning teams: First Place – Team Eleven; Second Place – Team Geese; Third Place – Team U of Web

 The Competition was created to keep students both engaged and entertained while solving a maritime design/build challenge using strict guidelines. With less than two hours to design and construct working models, the teams create vessels to compete in a series of timed runs and are scored based upon a pre‐determined formula.

“Each year we enjoy seeing student participation increase in this fun event,” said Richard Mueller, NETSCo President and CEO.  SNAME is so supportive of young adults through sponsorship opportunities and the local Chapters to inspire youth to pursue a career in the maritime engineering field. NETSCo is happy to support their efforts in any way we can.”
