The Boysie Bollinger School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering (NAME) was established to meet local industry demand. It was a natural outgrowth of our resource-rich region and the depth of UNO’s engineering expertise. Since its founding, NAME has continued to grow in size and reputation and we now sit high on the list of select schools in the nation (and the only one in the Gulf region) where students can learn to build ships and other self-sustaining offshore structures.
