I am a graduate of the Marine Institute of Memorial University with a diploma in Naval Architecture and a certificate in Post-Secondary Education. I teach primarily in the Naval Architecture program and in recent years I have lead the third year design projects. Prior to starting at the Marine Institute I worked in the private sector in both design offices and shipyards across North America. A significant portion of my industry experience has been in project management and advanced structural analysis using Finite Element Modeling.

Winston Pynn, Instructor

I am a graduate of the Marine Institute’s Naval Architecture program and after graduation in 1994 I worked in yacht design for more than 12 years, first as a junior naval architect, then progressing to engineering manager. In 2006 I completed a master degree in business from Warwick University (UK). I am still somewhat active in yacht design and am particularly interested in production processes and how they may be improved.
