It is an introductory course in ocean engineering for undergraduate students. The topics covered are of a general and introductory type. The course applies the knowledge of wave mechanics and structural mechanics to solve problems related to the ocean.
It starts with a description of the ocean environment and estimation of environmental loads on offshore structures. The various types of offshore structures in use are described and their design requirements are discussed.
Various engineering systems such as buoys, moorings, mining and energy systems are discussed. Lastly, the safety aspects very crucial to ocean engineering are presented.
