The pre-requisite for the Ocean Engineering Graduate Program is that a degree candidate have a Bachelor’s Degree in an engineering discipline. Student-specific pre-requisite requirements may also be imposed by the faculty for students with a weak background in the basics of ocean engineering (such as dynamics, fluid mechanics, and mechanics of materials).
The Master of Science degree requires a minimum of 32 credit hours and a thesis. Required coursework includes the following:
OCEN 678 Fluid Dynamics for Ocean and Environ. Engineering OCEN 671 Ocean Wave Mechanics OCEN 681 Seminar (every semester in residence) OCEN 691 Research (toward MS Degree) MATH 601 Higher Math. for Engrs. and Physicists I
Select two courses from:
OCEN 672 Coastal Engineering OCEN 676 Dynamics of Offshore Structures OCNG 608 Physical Oceanography
Technical electives to complete the coursework requirements can be selected from the Ocean Engineering Program List of Graduate Courses as well as from other departments on campus.
Admissions to the program is described on the Admissions page.
