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:
||Fluid Dynamics for Ocean and Environ. Engineering
||Ocean Wave Mechanics
||Seminar (every semester in residence)
||Research (toward MS Degree)
||Higher Math. for Engineers and Physicists I
||Dynamics of Offshore Structures
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.
