ocean engineering

Ocean engineering addresses the design of off-shore and near-shore structures; design of high-speed ocean vehicles; study of oceanic and coastal zone processes. The ultimate objective of the program is to provide aspiring engineers in the above fields with the required strong background in the basic principles, and sufficient familiarity with up-to-date computational techniques which are directly applicable to the design or assessment of engineered systems.

Several courses are offered in the program, including

  • Introduction to ocean and coastal engineering
  • Environmental fluid mechanics
  • Principles of hydrodynamics
  • Physical oceanography
  • Modeling of turbulent flows
  • Dynamic response of structures
  • Fluid/structure interactions
  • Computational fluid mechanics
  • Finite element methods
  • Boundary element methods
  • Design of offshore structures
  • Soil/structure interactions.
