Ocean engineers study the world’s ocean environment using engineering expertise to analyze its effects on vessels and structures. They are involved in deep-sea exploration and projects such as designing and operating platforms or sub-surface vehicles. A master’s in ocean engineering from Florida Tech provides students a multidisciplinary, hands-on program oriented toward the needs of industry. With emphasis on basic engineering sciences, design and modern engineering tools and methods, its one of the only graduate programs that offers training in ocean engineering, naval architecture, oceanography, meteorology, environmental science and coastal management. Through hands-on fieldwork, students apply their understanding of civil, mechanical, electrical and computer engineering to design and build solutions for complex marine environments.
