What is a PhD in Maritime Engineering? It’s a doctorate's program with a strong focus in the field of marine and aquatic studies. In this program, scholars take courses such as estuary hydrodynamics, nonlinear wave theory, computational fluid dynamics and ports and harbors. Program participants should also expect to spend a significant amount of time in the wild conducting research as part of their dissertation, which is the culmination of their PhD studies.

Successful program graduates are generally quite skilled at solving complex mathematical equations, which is a highly specialized skill that could give them a competitive edge when job hunting. Students also commonly develop highly developed research and analytical skills while completing a program.

There is a variety of factors that may affect the cost to complete a PhD program. Students should consider their availability to commit to their studies and research schools for a breakdown of current costs before deciding.

PhD grads are often able to find work in the field of aquatics. Possible job opportunities include operating oil platforms, engineering wind turbines and other forms of alternative energy, managing shipbuilding and other seafaring vessels and other careers based in aquatic environments. Some graduates may wish to remain in the field of academia, finding work as lecturers or professors at a college or university.
