Engineers are responsible for building planes, trains, and automobiles, but what about those who are more aquatically inclined? Budding Captain Nemos may want to consider pursuing Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, a field of study dedicated to the design, construction, and maintenance of ships.

The AS1 (pictured above) is a one-person underwater vehicle that can cruise at up to 4 mph as riders take in marine vistas.
