The BS in ocean engineering reflects the school's emphasis on the "Blue Economy" and the need for students who are ready for employment in areas such as shipbuilding, the maritime industry, offshore oil and gas exploration, environmental monitoring, port operations, coastal engineering and more. The program in ocean engineering is one of only ten programs in the nation and will prepare students well for the growing needs of this economic sector.
Students may complete the freshman and sophomore years of their program at either the Hattiesburg or Gulf Park campuses. The junior and senior years of the program are delivered at Gulf Park exclusively, where students will have access to specialized classes that utilize laboratory facilities in Long Beach and the Gulfport Port Facility.
