Innovations in marine technology, pioneered through Open Access research...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research here explores the potential of marine renewables, such as offshore wind, current and wave energy devices to promote the delivery of diverse energy sources. Expertise in offshore hydrodynamics in offshore structures also informs innovations within the oil and gas industries. But as a world-leading centre of marine technology, the Department is recognised as the leading authority in all areas related to maritime safety, such as resilience engineering, collision avoidance and risk-based ship design. Techniques to support sustainability vessel life cycle management is a key research focus.

This 4th edition of Scottish Education takes account of an important political milestone in Scotland’s history: the 2014 Scottish Independence Referendum. The text looks at that closely in the context of education, reflects on the very considerable changes which have taken place since devolution in 1999, and incorporates a wealth of contemporary research evidence and scholarly analysis. Featuring some 60 new authors, the latest edition contains forthright and informed commentary on every aspect of education and is essential reading for anyone who needs to know how education ‘works’ in Scotland. The final section looks to the future, offering thoughtful critical assessments of the educational landscape ahead, whether in an even more devolved Scotland or an independent European state.
