From page 143...
... Undergraduate students in the Department of Mechanical Engineering can enroll in a naval architecture option in the future. There are 12 students enrolled in the program under this revised arrangement.
From page 144...
... Occasionally the department awards a doctoral degree. Graduates gain familiarity with the design of ocean engineering systems along with physical oceanography and the fundamental engineering science courses.
From page 145...
... NOAA's National Sea Grant College Program also sponsors research at MIT. Hydrodynamics is the predominant category of various research efforts, many of which are fundamental research involving vorticity control, vortex dynamics, free-surface turbulence, and similar areas, but ship resistance and means for propulsion, ship motions and wave-induced loading, as well as the loading and the response of offshore structures, are also studied.
From page 146...
... In 1994, the eight graduate program areas of specialization in marine hydrodynamics, marine structures, marine engineering, marine environmental engineering, offshore engineering, marine systems management, ship production, and computer-aided marine design were combined to encompass the primary thrust areas of marine hydrodynamics, marine environmental engineering, and concurrent marine design. The degree of Master of Engineering is offered in the multidisciplinary field of manufacturing.
From page 147...
... All are active in research that is funded by ONR, NSF, Sea Grant and the Gulf Coast Region Maritime Technology Center, and industry projects. This research covers the areas of ship offshore structure design, hydrodynamics, seakeeping, marine engineering, and maritime operations.
From page 148...
... The Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University program in ocean engineering is part of the Department of Aerospace and Ocean Engineering and has an undergraduate enrollment of about 50 students (not including first-year students) and about 10 graduate students.
