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

The Vertically Integrated Project: STEM Education & Public Engagement aims to foster both interdisciplinary approach to learning and the development of enhanced communities of inquiry. Within the project students create and sustain STEM Education Clinics in schools and Public Engagement events within related local communities in Scotland. In so doing, the project develops students’ own STEM domain knowledge and intra–professional skills sets and also seeks to promote the development of STEM literacies across stakeholder communities in which these clinics are set.
