The growing importance that sustainable management of the marine environment and coastal ecosystems is acquiring in state policies, is demonstrated in the numerous international agreements signed in recent years.
Many coastal municipalities, responsible for ensuring the health of its beaches and coasts, increasingly require the presence of a specialized figure in the management of the coastline and its resources, both biological and tourist. To this growing need for trained personnel, we must add the lack of training of the state training plans in the different oceanographic disciplines, with specialization through postgraduate training being very common.
The program in Marine Science and Technology is focused on the practical applications that take place in coastal systems. In this sense, the different oceanographic disciplines are reviewed in order to have an idea not limited to the marine environment. Once the existing interactions between the different disciplines have been understood, it is deepened in the applied study of the coastal environment through practical specializations.
Duration, credit structure and degree
Regarding the distribution of time, it is established that:
- Being a distance Program and not being subject to face-to-face classes, a specific start date is not established, so the student can formalize the enrollment at any time, provided there are places available.
- For academic and learning reasons, a minimum duration of the Program of six months is available.
- The maximum time available to complete the Program is two years. In this period of time, the student must have delivered all the corresponding evaluations, as well as the Final Project or Degree Thesis.
