In order to support national development which is oriented towards the development of ocean engineering, resources in this field are needed with sufficient quantity and quality. This is because sustainable development for Indonesia will depend on the success of Indonesia in developing ocean resources. Based on the desire to play an active role in the program to improve the quality of human resources in marine technology, since 1992, the Faculty of Marine Technology ITS pioneered collaboration with The Department of Marine Technology, The University of Newcastle Upon Tyne in pioneering graduate programs in marine technology .

The Department of Ocean Engineering, which is under the auspices of the Faculty of Marine Technology (FTK), opened the Graduate Study Program in Marine Technology starting in the 1996/1997 academic year. From the 1993/1994 academic year to the 2004/2005 school year, 118 graduates had graduated from 555 students. Starting in the 2001/2002 school year the Doctor of Marine Technology program was opened.

Supported by teaching staff with qualifications: 5 professors, 16 doctors. Supporting facilities available are as follows: Lecture Room, 6 Laboratories, Reading Room with more than 6000 library materials, 18 international scientific journals, Internet connections and other facilities.

Masters Program in Ocean Engineering implemented within four semesters (two years). The total credit load is 75 credits (equal to 120 ECTS), consisting of mandatory subjects and elective courses (36 credits), publication, research and thesis writing (39 credits) in accordance with the curriculum.  These additional activities are mandatory in order to complete the academic activities and graduate from the program. The complete information regarding academic activities credits can be seen in table of the conversion of academic activities credit into ECTS.  The Program Education Objectives (PEO) and Learning Outcomes (LOs) of MOE are as follows.

Program Education Objectives (PEO)

The objectives of the Master Degree in Ocean Engineering (MOE) Program is :
