Ocean Engineering

A master's degree is an advanced course of studies open to students who have completed an undergraduate degree. Most master's degree programs require three years to complete, and typically feature a combination of lectures and course work with practical research. A master's thesis is generally required as a component of earning the degree.

Some students ask, "What is a Master in Ocean Engineering?" The degree, sometimes called maritime engineering, focuses mainly on education and research regarding the design, construction, and operation of sea vessels and structures. Topics within the study of ocean engineering cover the range of thermal, mechanical, electrical, and automation engineering as they relate to sea craft power plants and other systems.

A Master in Ocean Engineering is a degree that can serve well for opportunities in maritime industries, including oil and research facilities built on water and vessels at sea. Specialists in ocean engineering typically master a specific subject area relating to waves, currents, and irregular seas, as well as course studies in power production and distribution in maritime conditions. Skilled ocean engineers are required in structures at sea and ocean vessel power plant operations.

The cost of a Master in Ocean Engineering varies grandly depending on many factors, such as where the program is located and more. There are many factors to consider in anticipating costs of a master's degree, including the time necessary to complete the studies involving three or four years.

Career opportunities open to a successful completion of a master's degree in ocean engineering include many positions in maritime industry fields and government departments and agencies that oversee shipping and naval defense. Not only sea vessels, but also maritime structures such as oil platforms and research stations require ocean engineers to maintain and operate the complex systems of communications, electrical power generation and distribution, and more.

Many universities throughout the world offer a Master in Ocean Engineering. Program requirements vary. Search for your program below, and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

MSc In Oceanography

Université du Québec à Rimouski UQAR
Campus Full time 6 months September 2017 Canada Rimouski Lévis + 1 more

Fluency in oceanography as scientists able to understand the dynamics of the marine system of a multidisciplinary and comprehensive manner. [+]

Masters in Ocean Engineering. Fluency in oceanography as scientists able to understand the dynamics of the marine system of a multidisciplinary and comprehensive manner. It provides an informed knowledge of the marine environment, its resources, technical study and exploitation, pollution problems that we encounter and are appropriate intervention methods. The research project and the courses help to deepen their knowledge in one of four areas of specialization: chemical oceanography; biological oceanography; geological oceanography; Physical Oceanography. Program Structure Fluency in oceanography allows for a research project (27 credits memory) to deepen his knowledge in a specialty area of ​​science of the sea. From their first term, students participate in an oceanographic expedition on the research ship Coriolis II in the Experimental Oceanography course. The program also includes a general oceanography courses and two elective courses whose topics vary according to student research project. This program also helps develop the skills required for the pursuit of doctoral studies. Research areas physical oceanography Physicists are interested in the movement of water depending on various factors, like the tide, winds, changes in freshwater flow, as well as changes in space and time. Their research particularly affect: Waves of training; the salinity gradients and density; temperature variations; the energy exchange between the air and the sea; turbulent areas of training; related phenomena between the ocean and the temperature (global climate change, El Niño, hurricanes and typhoons); etc. chemical oceanography Chemists are interested in chemical processes in water and marine sediments. Their research particularly affect: the origins and fate of the chemical constituents of ocean water; chemical reactions that occur in the marine environment; the effects of contaminants (organic or not) and their distribution; gas exchange between the atmosphere and the ocean; etc. biological oceanography Biologists are interested organizations and living microorganisms in the marine environment, such as plankton, algae, crustaceans, molluscs, fish and mammals. Their research particularly affect: trophic relationships between these organizations and the factors that may disrupt this relationship, such as climate change and pollution; interactions and the evolution of species based on physical, chemical and geological parameters of the medium; the influence of anthropogenic and natural disturbances on biodiversity; Aquaculture (physiology, genetics, development, etc.); fish farming systems; etc. geological oceanography Geologists are interested in the evolution of the seafloor, that is to say the nature of the sediments, the mechanisms of their implementation and the history of their accumulation. Their research particularly affect: the formation of ocean basins, mountain ranges, trenches, submarine volcanoes; how sediment is transported, lifted and distributed to form islands and continents; paleoclimatic and paleoenvironmental the reconstitution from the study of the mineralogical properties, geochemical and / or magnetic sediment; etc. Projects recruitment studies Teachers ISMER regularly appear calls for applications for projects Masters or PhD in oceanography. Applicants may also contact the teachers to know the coaching opportunities. The marine sciences, an axis of excellence in research at UQAR From birth of the Université du Québec à Rimouski, understanding of the marine environment has become a niche studies and axis excellence must search. UQAR today brings an extraordinary concentration of researchers with expertise across a wide range of issues affecting the science of the sea. ISMER is a leader in areas such as climate change at different latitudes, the effects of ultraviolet radiation on the first links in the food chain or the impact of contaminants on coastal ecosystems. The marine acoustics, aquaculture, population dynamics and sediment transport are also themes that can rely on solid expertise. Employment Opportunities Every year several job opportunities available for graduates in oceanography, which depend on the disciplinary training (biological oceanography, chemical, geological or physical). Since a large number of pollutants, natural or anthropogenic, end up in the ocean, environmentalists from around the world begin to be interested in ocean affairs. The need for specialists who understand not only the interdependence of the ocean, urbanization and industrialization in constant growth, but also the potential dangers of maritime accidents continues to strengthen. Public sector In Canada, the major employer of graduates in oceanography is the federal government, specifically the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and Natural Resources. Other government departments and agencies as well as universities employ oceanographers to teach and conduct research. Private sector Employment in the private sector largely affect studies and environmental assessment. Some large companies employ their own marine scientists while others prefer to hire consultants. Fisheries and aquaculture The fisheries research require knowledge of almost all aspects of oceanography to conduct population assessment and modeling of the dynamics of fish populations. The rapid expansion of aquaculture has led to a demand for a number of specialists, including nutrition and fish disease control. OBJECTIVES This program aims to train scientists capable of conducting oceanographic research, that is to say, to study the phenomena of the sea from a multidisciplinary and comprehensive manner. At the end of their oceanography training program, students will have acquired sufficient knowledge of the marine environment, its resources, study techniques and operating in that environment pollution problems and intervention methods appropriate. The research project and courses taken in the program allow the student to acquire multidisciplinary knowledge in oceanography and deepen their knowledge in an area of ​​specialization. [-]
