Course 2-OE: SB in Mechanical and Ocean Engineering

This program is intended for students who are interested in combining a firm foundation in mechanical engineering with a specialization in ocean engineering. The program includes engineering aspects of the ocean sciences, ocean exploration and utilization of the oceans for transportation, defense, and extracting resources. Theory, experiment and computation of ocean systems and flows are covered in a number of courses, complementing a rigorous mechanical engineering program; a hands-on capstone design class allows the student to master the design of advanced marine systems, including autonomous underwater vehicles and smart sensors.


The Mechanical and Ocean Engineering Program program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET,

Graduates have exciting opportunities in the offshore and oceanographic industry, the Navy or government, or further study in graduate school.
