Covering work done under Grant GH-25 from the Sea Grant Office of the National Science Foundation, this paper describes the development of an engineering technology curriculum in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering leading to the degree of Bachelor of Engineering Technology. The emergence of baccalaureate degree programs is traced; the types of students for whom the programs are suited is suggested; employment areas are discussed; and a pre-engineering technology curriculum is described. The particular curriculum in Marine Engineering Technology is described with attention given to cooperation from shipyard personnel in curriculum development, the creation of new courses in Shipbuilding and Shipyard Operations, and the continuing support from commercial shipyards as the curriculum was being offered.
