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.
