Designed to address today’s highly complex ocean and coastal challenges through integrated education, research, and engagement.
The School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering is the University of New Hampshire’s first “interdisciplinary school,” designed to address today’s highly complex ocean and coastal challenges through integrated graduate education, research and engagement. As such, it serves as an interdisciplinary nexus for marine science and ocean engineering teaching and research across the university. Combining traditional faculty and program strengths in Oceanography, Marine Biology and Ocean Engineering with an emerging Marine Policy focus, the School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering provides its students with the scientific underpinnings of these disciplines while training them to contribute to and engage in scientifically-informed policy and resource management.
The School of Marine Science and Ocean Engineering is committed to the intellectual, personal, and professional growth of its students, faculty, and staff. The mission of the School is to work across the university to enhance, facilitate and deliver internationally recognized, cross-disciplinary and high-impact research and education in marine science and ocean engineering.
