The staff and instructors at the Great Lakes Boat Building School are happy to once again team up with the folks at Chesapeake Light Craft for the 2012 Summer Workshops. We are offering a series of courses this coming summer in which you can build your own boat in fun and educational, one-week classes. We are featuring boats that have been yearly favorites, as well as introducing some new ones that we think will have great appeal.
Details can be read at our Summer Programs 2012 link, or you can call GLBBS.
More summer workshops will be announced as soon as information is available.
GREAT NEWS from EASTERN MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY for GLBBS STUDENTS!
With its status as a vocational school, GLBBS students would normally not be able to receive credit recognition from a traditional college but thanks to community colleges and their establishment of articulation agreements, this is now possible. This is how North Central Michigan College (NCMC) in Petoskey now offers a full year of credit for the GLBBS program toward an Associate degree in Applied Science.
Now, thanks to Dr. Dan Fields, a professor in the School of Engineering Technology at Eastern Michigan University (EMU), there is great news for students wishing to continue on for a Bachelor of Science degree. Through their articulation agreement with NCMC, an Associate degree may be transferred into EMU. It permits a third year of courses to be taken at NCMC, with the final year taken at EMU in their Applied Technology program.
The Applied Technology is a Bachelor of Science degree program, and is developed to best fit the student’s career goals. The student works out a program of study with an EMU advisor in the School of Engineering Technology. It is possible to complete the final year at EMU through on-line courses.
This should particularly have appeal for GLBBS students who are thinking about continuing on into naval architecture and design careers.
For more in depth details see the GLBBS BS Program link, or contact GLBBS.
Note: EMU has articulation agreements with several other community colleges in Ohio and Michigan.
