Ocean Engineering

In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

Ocean engineering is a subfield of engineering that deals with marine environments. Students may study shipping technology, marine biology, applied oceanography, and meteorology, as well as classical branches of engineering, such as mechanical, electrical, or civil engineering.

The United States of America is located on the continent of North America. It is the third largest country by size in the world. It has a relatively short history compared to other world nations, has one of the world's largest economies, and has one of the world's most diverse populations.

Masters in Ocean Engineering in North America 2017. 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.
