Applied Ocean Science
College or University: Scripps Institution of Oceanography
Type of degree: Ph.D.
Brief overview of program: Applied Ocean Science is a multidisciplinary program focused on the application of advanced technology to ocean exploration and observation. Applied Ocean Science (AOS) students perform research in marine acoustics, optics, electromagnetics, geophysics, ecology, sediment transport, coastal processes, physical oceanography and air-sea interaction. The emphasis is on the resolution of key scientific issues through novel technological development. The science focus of the Scripps AOS program is complemented by parallel Applied Ocean Science programs in both the Structural Engineering (SE) and Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Departments. Students have access to professors, courses and research facilities across all three departments.
