1 Guide to Marine Science and Technology Programs In Higher Education Compiled by Marine Technology Society Co-sponsored by

2 Editors Note: The last edition of the Guide to Marine Science and Technology Programs in Higher Education was published by the Marine Technology Society (MTS) in 1995 (that publication was titled Education and Training Programs in Oceanography and Related Fields). In the process of updating that resource, we joined forces with the Marine Advanced Technology Education (MATE) Center, which hosts the most comprehensive listing of marine programs online at www.OceanCareers.com. Every effort has been made to make this Guide as accurate and comprehensive as possible. However, some inaccuracies and omissions may have occurred and for those we apologize. We began updating the program listings for this Guide by sending electronic surveys to over 850 programs in the MATE Center educational institution database. The content of the database has been gathered over the past few years by MATE staff and student researchers. Our primary goal is to provide sufficient information in this volume for students, parents, and counselors to begin a productive search of the many options available nationwide in marine science and technology education. So, even with unavoidable errors, we are confident that this Guide, particularly with its many links to online resources and online contact information for almost all programs, will serve as a valuable jumping-off point for making contact with educational programs of interest. If you do note errors or omissions in this catalogue, we invite you to contact the MATE Center at www.oceancareers.com/comments with the correct information. MATEs OceanCareers.com website is updated on an ongoing basis, and the online version of this MTS Guide will be updated periodically as well. The Marine Technology Society gratefully acknowledges the assistance of those who provided the information for their respective institutions used to develop this Guide. We are particularly grateful for our collaboration with the MATE Center, and the wise and patient help from MATEs director, Deidre Sullivan; for database assistance from Bruce Ford of Clear Science, Inc.; for editorial support from MTS Communications Manager Susan Branting; and for the capable and persistent efforts of student researcher Heather Duncan to gather accurate information on over 1,000 programs. Editor: Amy Morgante Program researcher: Heather Duncan Proofreader: Susan Branting Database support: Bruce Ford, Clear Science, Inc.

3 Foreword Dear Educators and Students: The oceans offer fascinating and rewarding career opportunities for those who have an interest in science, technology, and engineering. If youre one of these people, or if you are a counselor or educator directing someone with an interest in the oceans, this Guide to Marine Science and Technology Programs in Higher Education is the ideal place to start. The Guide is a collaboration of the Marine Technology Society (MTS) and the Marine Advanced Technical Education (MATE) Center. It is a natural outgrowth of their shared missions to educate the next generation of ocean scientists, engineers, and technologists. For MTS, this mission is expressed through scholarships, student sections at U.S. colleges and universities, internships, the MTS Club for middle and high school students, and support for organizations like the MATE Center through financial and volunteer efforts. For the MATE Center, this mission is accomplished in a number of ways, from its remotely operated vehicle (ROV) competitions for students to professional development institutes for faculty, research on the marine workforce, and more. MTS had been offering the information in this Guide in printed form, while the MATE Center supplies it dynamically online at www.OceanCareers.com. It seemed logical to join our efforts to produce a comprehensive version that will allow counselors, students, and others to view it in both hardcopy and online formats. Funding for this project was provided by the membership of MTS and the National Science Foundations continuing grants to the MATE Center through the Centers for Ocean Sciences Education Excellence (COSEE) network and the Advanced Technological Education Program. We know you will find the Guide useful and wish you all the best in guiding your studentsor in guiding yourselftoward an exciting career in the world of ocean science and technology. Sincerely, Bruce C. Gilman, P.E. Deidre Sullivan President Director, Principal Investigator Marine Technology Society MATE Center iii

As the ocean is viewed as the earths last frontier, its exploration and safe exploitation represent important areas of professional opportunities for many engineers. As an example, the engineering of shipboard machinery, nav- igation and control systems, underwater robotics, propul- sion devices will require mechanical-engineering skills. ME students would benefit from an exposure to the technical problems and solution methods in the ocean fields. The liaison of these disciplines has been traditional.

169 Marine Science & Technology Programs Chemical Oceanography Chemical oceanography is the study of the mechanisms that control the distribution of elements and compounds in the ocean. Following the exploration of the 1960s and 70s, chemical oceanography is now focused on specific processes and their rates distributed throughout the worlds oceans. Our school takes pride in being a leader in an interdisciplinary approach to the study of the chemical distribution of inorganic and organic, stable, and radioactive elements.
