What Will I Learn?

Students will work with marine science faculty to gain hands-on experience with AUVs, gliders, ROVs and other sensor systems in the lab or in the field from USM vessels, such as R/V Point Sur.

Ocean Engineering program has 6 credit hours of summer internship in the curriculum. Internships provide students with valuable work experience and allow them to connect with employers in the region at federal agencies and engineering firms in the area.

Engineering learning continues outside the classroom and Ocean Engineering students will get the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills acquired through coursework before they graduate and will be stronger candidates for employers because of it.

platforms to explore the ocean. Our students have access to unique assets like an 18’ Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV) (C-Worker 5), a 100” Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) (Iver3), an explorer class AUV rated for 2000m, among other systems.

Senior Ocean Engineering students will take project and design and capstone courses and will have the chance to apply their knowledge and skills to design and application oriented research projects. Ocean Engineering program will also provide Honors College students the chance to participate in cutting edge undergraduate research.

Judith Bostwick Ocean Engineering Scholarship Endowment is to award scholarship to students with financial need majoring in Ocean Engineering.

Not Just Theory

Our Ocean Engineering faculty is engaged in state of the art research in core disciplines and is enthusiastic to have students participate in their projects. This generates ample opportunities for our undergraduates to gain valuable hands on experience in

and shoreline modeling.
