The Institute of Ocean Technology and Marine Affairs (IOTMA) provides students with an interdisciplinary education in ocean technology, coastal environment, and marine spatial planning. We therefore emphasize marine affairs issues locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. The major objective of the graduate degrees is to educate students in the interdisciplinary capability needed for marine and coastal management. Students will gain a solid foundation in issues encounter policy makers, environmental managers, and stakeholders at widely level. Students will also develop an understanding of the socioeconomic dynamic, environmental change, and political/legal effects in management process. Our institute offers two graduate programs: Master of Marine Affairs and Doctor of Philosophy.
