About

The research project comprises an original piece of work combining both experiment and theory. Your thesis should explore, in detail, some element of engineering or science as applied in the marine environment. Where appropriate, you will be encouraged to take advantage of our strong links with the marine industry to carry out your research project in an industrial context. Recent partnerships and collaborations include International Paint, Lloyds Register and BAE Systems.

Your research project is normally in one of the areas addressed by our research groups:

  • Oceans and Climate (OC)
  • Marine Biology Ecosystems and Governance (MBEG)
  • Marine Resources and Renewable Energy (MRRE)
  • Marine Hydrodynamics and Structures (MHS)
  • Sustainable Shipping and Marine Engineering (SSME)
