Marine architecture is the design of architectural and engineering structures which support coastal design, near-shore and off-shore or deep-water planning for many projects such as shipyards, ship transport, coastal management or other marine and/or hydroscape activities. These structures include harbors, lighthouses, marinas, oil platforms, offshore drillings, accommodation platforms and offshore wind farms, floating engineering structures and building architectures or civil seascape developments. Floating structures in deep water may use suction caisson for anchoring. 
- Cofferdam, a temporary water-excluding structure built in place, sometimes surrounding a working area as does an open caisson.
- Offshore geotechnical engineering – A sub-field of engineering concerned with human-made structures in the sea
- Civil engineering
- Marine engineering – Engineering of boats, ships, oil rigs or other marine vessel or structure
- Ocean engineering
- Oceanography – The study of the physical and biological aspects of the ocean
- Earth materials
- Floating wind turbine
- Geotechnical engineering

- Ocean – A body of water that composes much of a planet's hydrosphere
- Offshore construction – Installation of structures and facilities in a marine environment
- Offshore (hydrocarbons)
- Submarine pipeline – A pipeline that is laid on the seabed or below it inside a trench
- Subsea production system – Wells located on the seabed
- Wellhead – Component at the surface of a well that provides the structural and pressure-containing interface
