AOPE Faculty


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. Research interests encompass a wide range of theoretical, observational, and experimental approaches to understanding the ocean. Faculty specialties in the Applied Ocean Science and Engineering programs include coastal ocean fluid dynamics, ocean acoustics, underwater vehicle design, signal processing, and ocean instrumentation.
