Ocean Engineering

Department of Ocean Engineering

The MIT Department of Ocean Engineering was the oldest of its kind and one of the few in the United States to offer degrees in naval architecture and marine engineering, and in ocean engineering. The Department offers graduate and undergraduate degrees in ocean engineering. In addition, we offered graduate degrees in naval architecture and marine engineering, ocean systems management, naval engineering, and oceanographic engineering.

In 2005, Mechanical Engineering merged with the Department of Ocean Engineering (Course 13) to create a new department made up of approximately 75 faculty, 367 undergraduate students, 227 doctoral students, and 281 masters program students. Following the merger, the newly formed department retained its original name, the Department of Mechanical Engineering, which includes the Center for Ocean Engineering.

All courses are now listing the in Department of Mechanical Engineering .
