At Florida Tech, the Oceanography program, as well as the Ocean Engineering program are dedicated to the study of the sea in all its aspects, including core oceanographic fields, undersea exploration, economic and governmental uses, and management. This broad-based program provides frameworks for making rational decisions regarding coastal and ocean environmental problems. Research in the oceanography program includes aspects of tides, ocean waves, coastal processes, planktonic and benthic organisms, sea-level changes, remote sensing of ocean phenomena, oceanic circulation, and trace metal identification and distribution.
Also, available, Meteorology is the study of the Earth's atmosphere, a component of Earth system science; a meteorologist is someone who predicts the weather. Meteorology students become experts in math and physics, build a comprehensive knowledge of meteorology and gain in-depth exposure to fields like oceanography, geology, space science, environmental science, climate science and atmospheric chemistry.
