The School:

West Kentucky Community & Technical College is a SACS accredited college with an annual enrollment of 6,500 traditional and 2,897 online, long distance students that has achieved the ASPEN Institute Award on three occasions. The school is recognized as one of the leading colleges in developing and teaching degree programs through online technology to long distance learners and working from one main campus and 7 satellite campuses.
The Case:
This school’s Marine Technology and Logistics program is designed to be taught in an innovative environment. This provides opportunities to working adults who haven’t the ability or time to juggle job, family, and trips to a traditional campus classroom – the classic definition of today’s inland mariner. A new satellite campus houses the “Inland Logistics and Marine Institute” for the Marine Technology and Logistics programs. This year, the school began to offer an online Associate in Applied Science degree for Marine Technology in four tracks. Tracks offered include Marine Culinary Management, Marine Logistics Operations, Wheelhouse Management, and Marine Engineering.
