I'm wondering if there are any students or individuals who have some experience with either Westlawn or Macaughton schools of yacht design.
Westlawn Institute of Marine Technology
Yacht Design School, small craft, boat, naval architecture degree, correspondence, marine drafting
I'm in California
with a good job so remote learning
is my only option. I'm not doing this as a change in career but more of an interest that I want to pursue to learn. That being said, since I'm going to spend the money
, I want it to be worthwhile, credible and educational.
I've read both websites and each seems to have their own pro's and con's which seem very obvious on the surface.
Westlawn is accredited by the distance education training council and seems very professional. Macnaughton seems more nurturing and offers pay as you go lessons.
There are other differences which I won't get in to, but I was wondering whether anyone here can add some of their own experiences.
