Ocean Engineering

Explore Ocean Engineering

As an Ocean Engineering student at UNH, you'll be immersed in exploration and utilization of the marine environment. You'll study an interdisciplinary field rooted in a variety of engineering and physical science disciplines. Awaiting you is hands-on research in our large research tanks, on our vessels, in our estuaries and on the coastal ocean, using emerging technologies to interrogate the ocean environment, map the ocean floor, design ocean structures and address the dynamic forces that lead to coastal erosion.

  • "I chose to attend UNH because of the combination of having federal funds backing the program, cutting-edge facilties, industry connections, sizeable graduate student population, interdisciplinary ties to other engineering topics and computer science, and physical location within the U.S."

  • "UNH has a great ocean engineering program, and really great laboratories/facilities for students. That, coupled with the large number of research and funding opportunities here for ocean engineering projects, made UNH one of my top choices for graduate study."

  • "My favorite spot on campus is the wave tank in the High Bay of the Chase Ocean Engineering Lab. It's quite amazing to look at the beautiful waves created by the tank and relate them to my classes, or rather to connect the math and science of what's happening in front of me.  I get really excited...
