Students from virtually all U.S. and foreign universities that have marine interests have participated in the research at WHOI since it was founded in 1930.


The MIT-WHOI Joint Program draws from the resources of two preeminent institutions to form one of the largest oceanographic faculties in the world. Experts in their fields instruct students using personal research and field studies to support graduate education in ocean sciences and oceanographic engineering.
