Mission Statement

The Division of Engineering and Weapons provides midshipmen an education in fundamental engineering principles that equips them to address the technical needs of the Navy and Marine Corps. The Division of Engineering and Weapons at the U.S. Naval Academy is composed of five departments, encompassing eight academic majors.

Midshipmen are immersed in a hands-on, project-based environment geared toward teaching real world engineering problem solving skills by combining practical knowledge and a thorough understanding of mathematical and scientific fundamentals. The complexity of today's Naval weapon and engineering systems mandates a multidisciplinary approach in which revolutionary advancements in applied engineering and technology are brought to the classroom to prepare our graduates for service in the technically advanced Navy and Marine Corps of the 21st Century.
