Tyler Smith , BSMT student, returned to NMC to change careers in 2021“I moved from the west coast to join this one-of-a-kind program not only to get hands-on experience with industry-standard sonar and marine robotics systems, but also to build comprehensive and complementary marine tech skills. I'm only in my second year here, but I've already had two top-flight internships and multiple job offers.”
