This report contains recommendations on advanced university curricula in ocean engineering and related areas, emphasizing the needs of developing countries. A decision matrix is included to assist users in developing the necessary criteria for designing appropriate curricula to prepare university students for careers in different ocean engineering fields. Examples of curricula in four fields are presented to illustrate use of the matrix. They include: (1) offshore structural engineering; (2) coastal and nearshore engineering; (3) ocean instrumentation; and (4) fisheries engineering. Discussions on necessary and desirable requirements for introducing advanced ocean engineering curricula in terms of human resources, physical facilities, and teaching aids are also presented. In addition, recommendations for the strengthening of ocean engineering in general are provided. (Author/JN)
