Marine Education Support and Safety Operations

Our mission is to facilitate experiential learning in marine education both on and under the water and to provide a risk managed environment for education in the classroom and in the field. Texas A&M University at Galveston’s Marine Education Support and Safety Operations (MESSO) is an energetic hub of activity, using a multi-mission mix of education and training tools that the diverse water-related campus and community have available seven days a week throughout the year.

The Marine Education Support Operations hosts numerous waterborne research projects, labs, training opportunities, continuing education programs, Sea Camps and safety programs.
