The Southeast Maritime and Transportation (SMART) Center is the only National Science Foundation Advanced Technology Education (NSF ATE) Center in Virginia and is solely focused on increasing the number of well-qualified, skilled technicians in the maritime and transportation industry.
"The majority of today's workforce in shipbuilding and ship repair, one of the four main segments of the maritime and transportation industry, is nearing retirement age," explains SMART Center Executive Director and PI Barbara Murray. "That means that employers are looking for well-trained, knowledgeable workers with the technical skills required to build, repair, modernize, and maintain the ships that are so vital to our nation's economy and security."
