Overview

Introduction to Mechanical and Ocean Engineering

TheMechanical and Ocean Engineering program of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) includes engineering aspects of the ocean sciences, ocean exploration, and utilization of the oceans for transportation, defense, and extracting resources. Theory, experiment, and computation of ocean systems and flows are covered in a number of courses, complementing a rigorous mechanical engineering program. A hands-on capstone design class allows Course 2-OE students to master the design of advanced marine systems, including autonomous underwater vehicles and smart sensors. Graduates often go on to careers in the offshore and oceanographic industry, the Navy or government, or further study in graduate school.

Objectives

The educational objectives of the program leading to the degree Bachelor of Science in Mechanical and Ocean Engineering are that:

Within a few years of graduation, a majority of our graduates will have completed or be progressing through top graduate programs; advancing in leadership tracks in industry, non-profit organizations, or the public sector; or pursuing entrepreneurial ventures. In these roles they will:

  • Apply a deep working knowledge of technical fundamentals in areas related to mechanical, electromechanical, thermal, and ocean systems to address needs of the customer and society.
  • Develop innovative technologies and find solutions to engineering problems.
  • Communicate effectively as members of multidisciplinary teams.
