OCEAN ENGINEERING/APPLIED MARINE PHYSICS

Ocean Engineering concentrates on problems associated with the interaction of the ocean and the works of man.
A. The ocean engineer combines competence as an engineer with both a practical experience in and theoretical understanding of the ocean.
B. The Ocean Engineering program, offered jointly with the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, is intended to lay the foundation of this competence, experience and understanding.
C. The areas of faculty specialization in this program include coastal engineering, off-shore engineering, underwater acoustics, ocean measurements, marine geotechnics, and naval hydrodynamics.

The Master of Science degree in ocean engineering is offered jointly with the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science.
A. In addition, Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in applied marine physics are offered by the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science.
B. See APPLIED MARINE PHYSICS/OCEAN ENGINEERING under RSMAS elsewhere in this Bulletin for information on the applied marine physics.

An approved interdisciplinary program is required for the M.S. degree in ocean engineering which consists of a minimum of 30 credits at the graduate level with an average grade of B or better and no grade below C.
A. The 30 credits are divided among 24 credits in courses and six credits for thesis research.
B. At least nine of the required credits must be 600 level courses.
500 level courses are open to advanced undergraduates and to graduate students; 600 level courses are open only to graduate students.
