The Quarterdeck Society

SNAME Student Section at the University of Michigan.

Welcome to the Quarterdeck microsite!

The Quarterdeck Society is the student section of the Society of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineers (SNAME) at the University of Michigan. Our goal is to provide NAME students the opportunities to advance themselves professionally, gain a better awareness of our industry, build a valuable network of fellow students and industry professionals, give back to the community, and have fun! 

Our officers organize events and programs throughout the school year such as corporate presentations, industry-related field trips, attendance at the Great Lakes/Great Rivers SNAME Section Meetings and the SNAME Annual Meeting, volunteer opportunities, and social events. Learn more about our professional, volunteering, and social events on our Events page. If you are interested in contacting us, please email nameqd-23@umich.edu or check out our Contact Us page.
