The successful graduation in the degree course Marine Sensors enables to work independently on measuring issues in all areas of marine research and technology. Thus, graduates cover an important interface competence between science and technology. This includes, for example, the independent implementation of research and development work, the management of development teams, the implementation of observation systems, the adaptation of measurement methods for explorations, science management and advice to end customers and users.
The training primarily takes place at the Institute for Chemistry and Biology of the Marine Environment (ICBM). ICBM is the only university marine research institute in Lower Saxony. The Wilhelmshaven site is located directly on the Jade Bay and has several research boats in the neighbouring port that enable short-term destinations on the North Sea and near the coast to be reached. At ICBM, chemists, physicists, mathematicians, biologists, geologists, ecologists and technicians work in an interdisciplinary manner on current issues in marine research. Interdisciplinary thinking and acting are one of the main strengths of ICBM in research and teaching, which is imparted to the students.

A part of the training also takes place at the Jade University of Applied Sciences Wilhelmshaven as part of the contract for cross-university cooperation in the field of marine technology. Students can compensate for a lack of skills in the field of technology thanks to the wide, basic range of courses. Moreover, theses in the working groups of the marine technology department are also conceivable.
