The program encourages applicants from diverse backgrounds, including (but not limited to) engineering, ocean sciences, environmental science, and management. Applicants may need to complete prerequisite courses. The specific requirements will be determined by a faculty advisor on an individual basis depending on the student’s educational background and work experience.

Each student will meet with a faculty advisor to devise a study plan that matches the student's background, experience, and interests while also satisfying the formal coursework requirements for the Master's degree. Candidates for the degree of Master of Engineering must complete 30 credits (10 courses with 3 credits/course) and earn a GPA of 3.0 or better.
