It has helped me land three excellent co-ops with major defense and engineering contractors. This school is not very fun socially, but the academics are suitable. More importantly, the outside perception of the school is that it is exceptional and it's also good for networking (ie. you will get a good job). I recommend trying to do well academically, to distinguish yourself and get the best internships possible. Besides, the social life is non-existent, so you might as well buckle down. The strange thing is, many students still choose to neglect there studies and drink their time here away, which baffles me because it's not even a fun school. Academically, there is a good balance of theory and practical (hands-on) application. There are good and bad teachers, but overall the engineering programs are sufficient--I've learned quite a lot. My one complaint is that the school is still behind the curve in regards to computer based programs, automation, etc. But, it also offers a plethora of other material and practical applications which other programs lack. Overall, I can already see that it is going to be worth it.

I already have internships lined up for the next three years by just saying i go to MMA . if you want to come here just dont take anything personally and remember the future you can have after graduation.

The school's ultra-strict and the disciplinary system seems to favor those who are friends with cadets in power. If you have any sort of health problems don't go to Mass Maritime either. You sign your life away when you come here and it haunts you everywhere you go. I am in the International Business department and the vice-head is a self-absorbing snob who looks down on all his students because they do not understand his version of teaching, he spends half the class talking down on our lives. It is a shame because the program has a lot of potential. With the economy looking on the upside again, I would say anyone looking to study business here would be better off at another college with a recognized business school, trust me no matter how they advertise the job afterwords it is NOT worth it.

As a young women, I was discriminated against because I wasn't a guy. Most of the guys try to bag as many females as they can, have high levels of sexual harassment in which the staff turns a blind eye to. The academics are a joke, some professors can astoundingly call women whores without any consequences.
Employers do look at this school with enthusiasm, it does have a good reputation. However, this was not the school for me. I was so happy when I transferred to a different school, where I was accepted and not yelled at for crying for being yelled at and called a whore.
