Our department is one of only a handful of ocean engineering programs in the United States. We offer special expertise in ocean robotics and instrumentation, underwater acoustics, waves and coastal processes, marine geomechanics, ocean structures and offshore renewable energy.
Our location on picturesque Narragansett Bay offers a living laboratory for student learning. Our 100-foot-long wave tank, acoustics tank and research vessel further complement an experience found nowhere else.
