Maritime Technology Student of the Year

Monday, October 26, 2009

Andrew Harville, a recent graduate of the Webb Institute, was recognized as the 2009 winner of The Lloyd’s Register Education Trust Maritime Technology Student of the Year Award. The annual award, sponsored by the Lloyd’s Trust and the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME), is designed to highlight excellence while encouraging students to showcase their research and investigative studies on topics in the areas of naval architecture, marine and ocean engineering and promote leadership in the industry. It was presented to Harville at the SNAME 2009 President’s Luncheon, held during the SNAME 2009 Annual Meeting and Expo in Providence, Rhode Island. The theme for this year’s competition, open to undergraduate students in the U.S. and Canada, was “Maritime Technology: Advancing Lifecycle Environmental Stewardship.” The 2009 Webb graduate, now a naval architect with Waller Marine, Inc. in Spring, Texas, was honored with the $3,500 first prize for his paper “Politician Promises: A Study in Advancing a Green Staten Island (NY) Ferry System.”

Beginning in 2010, the award will be re-named The Lloyd's Register Educational Trust America's Maritime Student of the Year and the competition will be expanded to include students from central and south America.

The theme for the 2010 competition is "A green ship or green system for safe operation in the ice and cold environment.” Students have until December 1, 2009 to submit a declaration of interest and the deadline for submissions is March 31, 2010. Final judging will take place in June and the 2010 award will be presented at the SNAME 2010 annual meeting in Seattle next November. For more information and submissions, contact Alana Anderson at aanderson@sname.org or call 1+201.499.5066.
