Contemporary Wooden Boat Building

Organization

Wooden submarine built for the UW team

Educational Objective
This program teaches students how to build wooden boats using strip planking, stitch-and-glue, plywood, cold molding, and laminating techniques applicable to both small and large vessels and other complex wooden structures.

Contemporary Wooden Boatbuilding Program Goals
The technology of modern wooden boat construction is employed by many yacht manufacturers and wooden boat builders who are melding the aesthetics of wood with the advantages of high-performance adhesives and sheathing materials. Completion of the 12-month Contemporary Wooden Boatbuilding AOS degree program prepares students for entry-level employment in boat shops and vessel manufacturing utilizing laminating, strip-planking, cold molding, and other composite boatbuilding techniques. The skills learned that focus on boat interiors are in high demand throughout the boatbuilding industry. Aerospace industries are also interested in employing graduates of the Contemporary Wooden Boatbuilding Programs because of students’ high-quality craftsmanship and knowledge of modern construction techniques.
