Ocean Engineering on the Galveston Campus

Galveston provides a unique opportunity in that the campus is located directly on the water's edge. While students are working hard in class, they can simply gaze out the classroom window and be reminded of why they chose to pursue a degree in ocean engineering. Or, they can take to the sea and discover what ocean engineering is all about with research experiences in a lab, on a boat and in the waves.
