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.

Abstract

There has been a trend in the past decade to introduce a new paradigm of thinking about the manner in which architects, urban designer, and planners approach the design of built environments. This new paradigm places emphasis on the concept of sustainability, a concept with should be come the focus and goal of architectural education worldwide. Accordingly, the question that this paper addresses is: have we, architectural educators, reached to reconfigure our curricula in a manner that is based on sustainability?
