The minor in Ocean and Marine Engineering is a collection of courses that provide the student with fundamental and applied knowledge of the vast ocean and marine resources available on this planet.  Emphasis is placed on responsible and sustainable engineering for extracting resource extraction from the ocean.  The core and elective options include courses from engineering as well as physical and marine sciences.

Professional Practice

Students earn credits for CIE 394, MEE 394 and MET 394 by completing a summer internship.  University of Maine has entered into an education partnership agreement with the US Department of Navy, which entitles students to preferentially apply for internships through their website.  Students may alternatively find internships at the Advanced Structures and Composites Center, or with companies in Maine and elsewhere.
