The School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering serves as an interdisciplinary nexus for marine science and ocean engineering teaching and research across the University.
The Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping helps students develop tools to advance ocean mapping and hydrography and trains the next generation of hydrographers and ocean mappers.
The program goal is to provide advanced graduate training to working professionals in the area of ocean mapping. These professionals will come from a variety of backgrounds ranging from earth science, geology, and biology to engineering. The graduate certificate in ocean mapping is awarded for completion of the core courses and associated practicum. The graduate certificate program fulfills the Category A International Federation of Surveyors/International Hydrographic Organization/International Cartographic Association (FIG/IHO/ICA) Standards of Competence for Hydrographic Surveyors.
