Picture of sea vessel plough through rough maritime conditions

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.

Scientific education - what a noble word. Hardly anyone would deny that this is not only a questionable, but also a necessary matter. Here, however, two concepts are combined which, like no other, have an aura of sublime and positivity. Together, they spread a glow that hardly anyone can escape. And with which so many people may well adorn themselves in times when glamor seems to be more relevant than the substance from which that splendor (unfortunately only supposedly) proceeds. And this always with regard to those two phenomena to which this radiant word of scientific education refers: science and education.
