The Department of Ocean and Mechanical Engineering has an enrollment of more than 500 undergraduate students and 80 graduate students. Faculty conduct sponsored research in the broad areas of acoustics, unmanned surface and unmanned underwater vehicles, and marine materials and corrosion. The ocean engineering program at FAU was initiated in 1965 as the first undergraduate ocean engineering program in the country. Today, in addition to the FAU Boca Raton campus facilities, the program utilizes SeaTech - The Institute for Ocean & Systems Engineering's state-of-the-art marine laboratory facilities and academic spaces designed to support collaboration among faculty and student groups within the department, across university institutes, and with other organizations. http://ome.fau.edu
