Ocean Science

NS

Introduction

The Ocean Science major aims to cultivate experts capable of using state-of-the-art oceanographic observation equipments and numerical models to study, preserve, and develop the ocean. In order to achieve these goals, the major has two specialized sub-majors such as Oceanography and Applied Ocean Science. The basic fields related to the ocean are educated in the Oceanography sub-major, and the applied fields related to the ocean are educated in the Applied Ocean Science sub-major. Once the student's specialty and his/her academic advisor have been decided, lectures focus on the specialty, and a wide range of field researches are conducted including equipment operation and data processing techniques.

Specialized Majors

London Protocol of Engineering Master of Project Administration

This is a professional Master’s degree course established to support the compliance of London Protocol by educating public officers from foreign countries who administer various projects in ocean environment and coastal engineering. This course is designed to nature excellent experts for effective management of ocean/coastal projects by professionally providing knowledges and technologies on ocean waste dumping and marine environment restoration that are main agendas of London Protocol, as well as on coastal engineering.

Oceanography

This course is designed to nurture excellent experts in the future ocean science field by systematically educating physical oceanography, chemical oceanography, marine biology, geological oceanography, and ocean climatology, also by acquiring techniques of cutting-edge ocean observation equipment and numerical modeling.

Applied Ocean Science

This course is designed to nurture excellent experts in the future applied ocean science field by professionally educating marine natural chemistry, marine biotechnology, marine environmental studies, environmental biology, satellite oceanography and coastal engineering, also by acquiring ocean measurement and analysis techniques.
