Students and organizations can bring hands-on activities or design challenges to your location or just visit as guest speakers.

The College of Engineering has developed a specialized interdisciplinary degree that focuses on engineering in marine environments — from the shore to the ocean floor. Students in this program gain an understanding of the geohazards present in and around the ocean by taking courses in ocean engineering, project management and safety engineering. Located on the Gulf Coast of Texas, Texas A&M University at Galveston provides the perfect location to apply the knowledge you’ve gained in a hands-on way, preparing you for a career in a variety of engineering sectors.
