261 Ocean Technololgy Combined Studio
The Spring Quarter Ocean Technology Design/Build studio is a coordinated event between three “active learning” courses, each targeted at students at different stages in our undergraduate program. The “Intro” course (Ocean 261) is designed for lower division undergraduates requiring attendance at our short course and weekend field trials. Ocean 361 is targeted at our undergraduate sophomores or juniors that in addition to the short course continue into the individual sensor design and build activities. These to course may be take concurrently in the same quarter. Ocean_Tech_III (Ocean 461, see below) provides our seniors (those already having completed earlier courses in the sequence, the applied skill in project management and leadership by acting as “student teachers” (mentors) for the Ocean 261/361 series.
