Program Educational Objectives
The Program Educational Objectives (PEO) of the Ocean Engineering Program is to produce graduates who:
- Gain employment as practicing professionals in the specialty areas within the field of ocean engineering including: underwater acoustics, ocean and coastal protection, coastal structures, marine structures, port-harbor, ocean modeling, coastal management, ocean environmental control, and ocean engineering design.
- Work professionally and to pursue higher education in the field of ocean engineering.
- Behave ethically, contribute to society, and be prepared to be successful in diverse workplaces, nationally and internationally.
The purpose of Ocean Engineering Master Program is to build master graduates who meet these outcomes:
- Understand the philosophy of education and ready to do researches related to the field of ocean engineering, including underwater acoustics, coastal protection facilities, coastal structures, offshore structures, ports, coastal modelling, coastal management, materials of marine environment and ocean energy.
- Work professionally and ready to pursue higher education in the field of Ocean Engineering.
- Able to comport themselves in a respected manner, contribute for the society’s wellness, and ready to excel in the work field, locally and internationally.
Student outcomes describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire as they progress through the program. Ocean Engineering Program student outcomes are outcomes (a) through (k) plus additional outcomes (l) (m) (n) for Ocean Engineering Program Criteria as indicated in ABET EAC Criteria For Accrediting Engineering Programs – Criterion 3. Student Outcomes.
