Oceanographic Engineering

Oceanographic engineering program educational objectives

After 5 years of graduation, Oceanographic Engineers from ESPOL will have:

  • Dimensioned oceanic and marine-coastal infrastructures applying information about the natural environment.
  • Solved complex problems that required an understanding of oceanic and marine-coastal processes and their social and ethical implications
  • Worked on multi-disciplinary teams solving oceanographic engineering problems that demand permanent professional improvement.

The Oceanographic engineering student outcomes are:

  • a) An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and oceanographic engineering.
  • b) An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data related to oceanographic engineering.
  • c) An ability to design an oceanic and marine-coastal system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
  • d) An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
  • e) An ability to identify, formulate, and solve oceanographic engineering problems.
  • f) An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  • g1) An ability to communicate effectively in Spanish.
  • g2) An ability to communicate in English.
  • h) The broad education necessary to understand the impact of oceanographic engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  • i) A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning within the oceanographic engineering field.
  • j) A knowledge of contemporary issues related to oceanographic engineering.
  • k) An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for oceanographic engineering practice.
  • l) An ability to recognize the need to undertake, and the skills to become an entrepreneur.
  • m) An ability to apply the scientific method to oceanic and marine-coastal processes research.
