Course Description:

Design, construction and evaluation of an engineering system. Laboratory and field experience and data analysis supplemented with appropriate theory.


                This course aims to provide ocean and resources engineering students with the fundamentals necessary for carrying out field and laboratory observations along with analysis of observational and experimental datain support of engineering endeavors. 

Course Plan:  

                 The course plan will focus on an engineering project that will involve field and lab observations along with associated data analysis.  This will include classroom lectures on experimental design, field and lab instrumentation and basic data analysis.  Field and lab sessions will include vessel-based deployment of cabled and autonomous gear, AUV and ROV operations and scale model experimentation.
