Summary:

The School of Marine Science and Technology, is the UK's first marine School which provides a single base for all education, innovation and research related to the sea

Description:

Newcastle University’s School of Marine Science and Technology (MaST) has world-leading research and teaching expertise in marine technology and marine science, a combination that is relatively rare ‘under one roof’ in the higher education sector.  The School has a strong research culture with over 80 PhD students supported by five interdisciplinary research groups working on topics such as marine renewable energy, low carbon shipping, ecosystem-offshore structure interaction, sustainable fisheries and ocean resource extraction.  The five groups are:

  • Oceans and Climate;
  • Marine Resources and Renewable Energy;
  • Marine Biology, Ecosystems and Governance;
  • Sustainable Shipping and Marine Engineering;
  • Marine Hydrodynamics and Structures.

The school has extensive laboratories for both science and engineering, including the historically important Dove Marine Laboratory, a modern research vessel (‘Princess Royal’) and the United Kingdom’s only cavitation tunnel.

The School has a proud history that spans over 100 years.  The original department, Naval Architecture established in 1902, merged with Marine Engineering in1989 and then with Marine Science and Coastal Management in 2002, to form the cross-discipline School which exists today.  From 2008 the School’s footprint has also extended to Singapore, where it was the first School from Newcastle University to offer degree programmes in what is now Newcastle University’s main base outside of the UK.

As well as research the school provides a suite of undergraduate, postgraduate and CPD programmes, with over 800 students in taught programmes from some 25 countries.
