At University of New Hampshire, in the Ocean Engineering - Ocean Mapping program, you’ll gain critical skills in rigorous classes and research projects at sites in New England and around the world. Our program is led by the Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping/Joint Hydrographic Center, one of four data centers for the Seabed 2030 project, which aims to create the definitive map of the world ocean floor by 2030, and one of only two academic centers in North America where students can complete the IHO/FIG/ICA-recognized, category-A Standards of Competence for Hydrographic Surveyors program.
You’ll have access to extensive research facilities at the Jere A. Chase Ocean Engineering Laboratory and aboard the R/V Gulf Surveyor, a 48-foot ship that is purpose-designed for ocean mapping activities. Most students who are accepted into the program are supported as Research Associates through externally-funded grants.
