INDUSTRY'S INTEREST IN OCEAN ENGINEERING EDUCATION PROGRAMS

A survey was conducted to determine the viewpoint of industry regarding the subject matter which should be included in an ocean engineering educational program. The results showed that many of the established disciplines are involved in ocean engineering activities. Those working in the field often hold advanced degrees and were involved in more than one subject. The majority of those questioned favored offering ocean engineering on both the undergraduate and graduate levels. For the B.S. curriculum, basic sciences, core material, applied sciences, and humanities were deemed desirable, while for the M.S. curriculum, basic materials and applications were considered most desirable.
