Engineering expertise in the international maritime industry is worth £51 billion annually in the UK alone. Leading edge research and development is essential, and Newcastle excels in multi-disciplinary research in ship hydrodynamics, ship structures, marine engineering, marine transport, production, environmental issues and decision support.
Marine Technology Programmes:
Today, public concern about the marine environment is growing. Issues such as sustainable energy generation (eg offshore wind farms and wave power), the environmental effects of offshore structures and the traffic of exotic species around the world are high on the agenda. Effective research requires the skills and knowledge of both engineers and biologists. Staff in the School of Marine Science and Technology have major interests in these areas. Trained postgraduates will be well equipped to face these new challenges to the international maritime world.
MSc, MRes, MPhil and PhD programmes provide training in the most modern techniques which will allow scientists and engineers to play a leading role in the maritime sector and in the management of coastal environments worldwide. Each year research students contribute to the Postgraduate Conference, participate in the seminar series and have opportunities for special training which will equip them for independent careers.
