OCEN5002 Ocean Engineering and Technology
- 6 points
Availability Location Mode Non-standard teaching period UWA (Perth) Face to face
- This unit provides a broad introduction to aspects of ocean engineering and technology and the interface with biological and social sciences. It explores—
• the history of ocean engineering and technology innovation;
• asset characterisation, functional requirements and concept design;
• environmental characterisation and site investigation techniques;
• codes and regulations;
• case studies of ocean engineering and technology projects;
• case studies of ocean engineering and technology and the interface with law and policy, and marine management and planning;
• the role of ocean engineering and technology in addressing current and anticipated ocean challenges; and
• the role of ocean engineering and technology in supporting sustainable healthy oceans for marine flora and fauna and human activity.
- Students are able to (1) demonstrate a basic knowledge of ocean engineering activities and technologies; (2) display a high level of understanding of the interface between offshore engineering and technology, law and policy, and marine management and planning; (3) critically analyse and make recommendations for engineering and technology innovation and/or future research and development needed to address global oceans challenges; (4) demonstrate an enquiring, critical and creative approach to offshore engineering and technology; and (5) demonstrate an appreciation of the interdisciplinary nature of ocean engineering and technology and its connectivity with the biological and social sciences.
- Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) in-class assessments; (2) project; and (3) presentation. Further information is available in the unit outline.
Supplementary assessment is only available in this unit in the case of a student who has obtained a mark of 45 to 49 and is currently enrolled in this unit, and it is the only remaining unit that the student must pass in order to complete their course.

- The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
- All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
- Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available at the University Co-operative Bookshop (from early January) and appropriate administrative offices for students to consult. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
