I love the fact that even as an undergraduate student in ocean engineering, I can work on projects most students at other school don't even look at until they are in graduate school.

I chose to study at Florida Tech for the location and the hands-on approach to learning. The amount of opportunities you have to work with hands-on projects as an ocean engineering major is amazing.

Bachelor of Science in Ocean Engineering

Ocean engineering is a multidisciplinary field of technology applied to the ocean environment that combines aspects of civil, mechanical and electrical engineering with naval architecture and applied oceanography.

Students working towards an ocean engineering degree gain fundamental expertise in chemistry, math and physics and build in-depth knowledge of coastal processes, ocean systems and design technologies. Whether you want to develop a new way of preventing coastal erosion, design jetties and seawalls, or become a naval architect, an ocean engineering degree from Florida Tech develops a strong background in engineering with experience in environmental science and instrumentation.

Florida Tech is listed among the Fiske Guide's "Engineering/Top Technical Institutes" and Parade Magazine's College A-List in Engineering.

Gain Practical Experience

Studying for an ocean engineering degree at Florida Tech gives students a unique opportunity to study in a marine environment given the university's close proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. For example, ocean engineering is field intensive and seagoing; students often participate in research projects on board chartered vessels in the open sea.

As a senior, you'll complete an exciting design project in collaboration with a team of your peers. Together, you'll conceptualize, design, construct and present a machine or structure that fulfills a real-world need. You'll present your project to industry leaders and employers, and may compete in international competitions. As a result, you get practical experience, an expanded professional network and perhaps even a pre-graduation job offer.

Build Professional Relationships

Beyond the classroom, ocean engineering degree students build leadership and professional experience through exciting internships and participation in academic organizations like Tau Beta Pi (engineering honor society), the Marine Technology Society, the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, student government and over 100 other campus-wide student organizations.

Get Recruited Upon Graduation

Employers seek out graduates with an ocean engineering degree from Florida Tech. Employers that have recruited our students for internships and careers include the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), U.S. Navy, Norfolk Shipbuilding and Drydock Corp., Environmental Protection Agency, EPCOT, National Science Foundation and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.

Earn an Advanced Degree

After receiving their ocean engineering degree, many of our students go on to graduate school at universities such as Florida Tech, University of Alaska, MIT, Johns Hopkins, Virginia Tech and Cambridge University (UK).
