The program is open to students who want to pursue a career in engineering or marine science and professionals who have responsibilities in engineering, marine science, business and law fields and want to further their knowledge and skills. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Ocean Engineering is projected to grow 9% from 2014-2024.
The program has two tracks:
- Coastal engineering
- Remote sensing and maritime security
Both tracks build upon the unique world-class resources available through the University of Miami’s Center for Southeastern Tropical Advanced Remote Sensing (CSTARS) satellite receiving facility and Surge Structure Atmosphere Interaction Facility (SUSTAIN) wind-wave laboratory.
The mission of the MS Ocean Engineering degree is to educate students with a combination of strong applied scientific knowledge in the marine sciences and engineering. These students will possess the skills needed to address a range of marine related concerns in a rational and responsible manner.
