Ocean Engineering Studies

I am applying to colleges that offer a degree in ocean engineering and I'm trying to get a sense for the programs at Florida Institute of Tecnology, University of Hawaii, Florida Atlantic University, UC San Diego and University of Rhode island.  or should I look elsewhere?  Do graduates from these schools have wide appeal in the job market?

I apologize for the error.

RE: Ocean Engineering Studies

Do you have any idea of what you would like to do after you graduate.  Are you looking at coastal structures (break waters, jetties piers), underwater vechicles (AUV, ...), offshore structures (Oil rigs), corrosion or naval engineering.  I know that Florida Tech had a very strong costal and offshore program, while FAU had a very strong underwater vechical program.  I don't know too much about Hawaii, but I believe that they had a strong program in offshore structures.  All three are fine schools.  I suggest that you look at the courses that they offer, and the area of research that the professors are into.  Then base you decision on where your intrests lie.  And don't forget that Texas A&M has a very strong prtogram in offshore structures.  Hope this helps.

RE: Ocean Engineering Studies

Thank you for the reply.  I have already been accepted into the FIT ocean engineering program and it sounds as if they have a very good rep.  Texas A&M and FAU also keep coming up.  Not sure at this early stage as to what my focus will be but your insight is just what I was looking for.
Thanks again.

RE: Ocean Engineering Studies

How did you like the undergrad program at FIT?  Did you do any post grad work there?
