Scope of Ocean Engineering Sector

ECPSR understands the professional world and its requirement and that’s why a variety of courses of different domains are available at Our European College of Professional Studies and Research, Estonia, Europe. In this blog we are sharing a few insights about Ocean Engineering.

We can easily find an engineer in every hook and corner of a city, mechanical or chemical, carrying a degree. Academically strong students are often told by their parents to opt for science stream in eleventh standard and make them proud by becoming an engineer or a doctor but engineering is so wide that we are unaware of its various branches and their respective scopes.

One of the branch of engineering deals with Ocean engineering, which can be defined as an advanced study of marine technologies and applying principles of design, construction and maintenance to the ocean environment. This engineering field is full of potential with respect to job orientation in fields like transportation, mineral exploration, trade, oil and gas, etc.

In order to serve the purpose of transporting goods and energy worldwide, the ships need to be designed which in turn spur the opportunities for ocean engineers. Ocean engineers basically design, construct and maintain instruments to facilitate the study of oceanography and marine biology by applying the engineering skills and the knowledge they possess about oceans. Their job is all about work and travel. Their careers include ocean engineer, naval architect, marine engineer and environmental engineer.

Areas tapped by ocean engineers include regulation, surveying and overseeing, consultancy, research and development, education, training etc.

Ocean Engineering Sector
Ocean engineers are hired by ship and boat builders as design consultants for the ships meant for the Ministry of defence and Navy. They provide professional advice and technical support to those in the offshore industry working as consultants. There is wide scope for offshore research. Climate monitoring, environmental protection and marine transportation are some of the career options offered by government. An Ocean Engineer must possess excellent communication skills, should be creative and logical, analytical, must be a good leader and should be well-versed with the computer software knowledge.

The eligibility criteria to become an ocean engineer is one must have at least a bachelor’s degree in Ocean Engineering studies which can be earned at ECPSR  and further to study for a degree in this field, you must have science stream in 12th standard (biology, physics and chemistry) and mathematics. The bachelor’s degree offered by ECPSR provides learning of the methods of research of the ocean environment such as how the marine systems are actually operated and their construction methods. The ECPSR graduates can also go further for a post-graduate degree.

After completing this particular degree course at ECPSR you can expect your Pay scale to be in congruence with the industry standard. Further it also relates with the job experience one is holding and the type of company they are working for in case of experienced candidates. In case, you are a fresher, then also ECPSR helps you in getting internship opportunities at various engineering companies to get a hands on experience of this field and later you may be absorbed by the same company based on your job performance.

As a concluding note, ocean engineering offers a wide scope in various fields and is providing a great deal of employment opportunities with a high pay scale.
