    I don't know much about Ocean Engineering. I do know that several universities offer a major in it and that the coursework has some overlap with mechanical engineering. Florida Atlantic University's website has a nice description: http://www.ome.fau.edu/ocean-engineering/what-is-ocean-engineering Good luck!

    The American Society of Civil Engineers has a subsidiary group called Coastal, Ocean, Ports and River Institute (COPRI) that may be of interest.
