The Department of Ocean and Mechanical Engineering at FAU would like to extend a warm welcome to all who will be joining them for the 50th year celebration of their ocean engineering (OE) program on April 21-22. When the program was conceived in 1965, the founders could only imagine the extent to which their efforts would shape the future of ocean engineering in the United States and abroad.
Today, ocean engineers play important roles in the Navy, offshore industries, underwater communication, weather and climate prediction, commercial shipping, and a host of industries specializing in underwater technology. Continuing advances in technology and the growth in the global market place offer new opportunities to ocean engineers. Over 1500 individuals have graduated from the ocean engineering program at FAU.
The OE undergraduate program is still the largest of its kind in the country, while the OE graduate program maintains its significant strength. Operating on a dual campus; the original campus in Boca Raton still serves as the primary home to the undergraduate program while the ocean-side campus at Dania Beach has seniors working side-by-side with graduate students, faculty and engineers engaged in leading edge research at SeaTech, The Institute of Ocean and Systems Engineering.
