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.
