Course summary

This course aims to: provide a thorough training in the theory and application of physical oceanography; familiarise the student with modern oceanographic instrumentation and observational techniques; introduce state-of-the-art computational fluid dynamics, data analysis and fundamental modelling methods; and provide the student with the practical experience and physical understanding necessary to address significant problems in the coastal ocean environment. This course has run for over 40 years and past students have gone on to become Nobel Laureates, directors of the main UK Oceanographic laboratories and managing directors of major commercial oceanographic companies. Many hold posts in the marine industries, particularly in consultancy companies that provide services in oceanography to the oil industry and companies concerned with engineering operations in shelf seas. There are opportunities in Government Laboratories and agencies with responsibility for estuarine and coastal waters. Many graduates have continued to higher degrees and an academic career.
