Industry's Interest in Ocean Engineering Education Programs.
Herbich, John B.
This publication presents the results of a survey conducted to determine the viewpoint of industry regarding the subject matter that should be included in ocean engineering education programs. Questionnaires were mailed to over 1,000 individuals; 270 replies, or 27 percent of those surveyed, respond. Seventy percent of the replies indicated involvement in some aspect of ocean engineering. The results showed that many of the established disciplines are involved in ocean engineering activities. The principal courses recommended were basic sciences, core material, applied sciences and humanities for an undergraduate curriculum; basic materials and applications were considered most desirable for graduate studies.
