Ocean Engineering Master’s Degree Curriculum Overview

The ocean engineering master’s degree offers a highly customizable curriculum with unique courses in ocean engineering, including design of living shorelines and urban oceanography, as well as access to unique facilities such as research vessels, high performance computing and a towing tank.

By the end of this program, students will be able to:

  • Determine the hydrodynamic loadings on vessels/structures
  • Design structures/vessels to withstand those loadings
  • The applied mathematics requirement would be met by taking: MA 529 and MA 530.
  • Conduct oceanographic field, laboratory, and numerical investigations

Below are some of the typical courses available in this program.

Core Courses Include:

  • Oceanography or Urban Oceanography
  • Hydrodynamics
  • Applied Mathematics for Engineers & Scientists II
  • Mathematical Methods of Engineering and Science I
