Objective

The MS in Ocean Engineering provides participants with a combination of engineering skills and strong scientific knowledge in the marine sciences, preparing them to address a variety of ocean-related engineering concerns (e.g. prepare coastal communities for a changing climate; port and harbor security; coastal observation networks; coastal infrastructure; etc.) in a rational and responsible manner.

The program is open to students who want to pursue a career in engineering or marine science and professionals who have responsibilities in engineering, marine science, business and law fields and want to further their knowledge and skills. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, Ocean Engineering is projected to grow 9% from 2014-2024.

The program has two tracks:

  • Coastal engineering
  • Remote sensing and maritime security

Both tracks build upon the unique world-class resources available through the University of Miami’s Center for Southeastern Tropical Advanced Remote Sensing (CSTARS) satellite receiving facility and Surge Structure Atmosphere Interaction Facility (SUSTAIN) wind-wave laboratory.
