Maritime Engineering and Ship Science


Maritime Engineering and Ship Science is a broad-based area focusing on the study and investigation of
engineering systems operating in the maritime environment.

Overview Research Education Enterprise Facilities

Merchant and naval ships, leisure craft, offshore structures, wind/water energy harvesting structures,
submarines, submersibles and, even, fish and swimmers are typical examples of engineering systems that
we consider. Our work encompasses hydrodynamics, structures and materials and their integration for
the design, production and operation of these engineering systems, taking into account environmental,
economic, social and safety related factors. Consequently, apart from engineers, we work closely with a
wide range of scientists in the UK and abroad, such as oceanographers, biologists, geographers,
economists, and marine archaeologists, in both our teaching and research activities.

Protection of the environment provides an important


motivation for our endeavours and interests. Development of
low carbon marine systems, more efficient/alternative
propulsion systems, wave and wind energy extraction
methods and systems, new materials sustainable over a life
cycle, and carbon sequestration are examples of such
initiatives. These activities inform our teaching and provide
our students with opportunities in carrying out projects in
exciting and stimulating areas that are important for the
future of engineering and the planet. They also provide a
platform for developing and applying our multidisciplinary
Boldrewood Innovation Campus
research methodology.

7/19/2018 Maritime Engineering and Ship Science | Engineering and the Environment | University of Southampton

World-leading expertise from the University of Southampton and Lloyd's Register is being brought
together in the largest research collaboration of its kind in the UK at our new Boldrewood Innovation
Campus. Drawing together the engineering excellence of both organisations in a new research hub in
Southampton, the collaboration will focus on innovations in transport, energy and the environment.
Academics and industry experts will combine forces through the entire process of identifying and
researching challenges faced by businesses and communities worldwide to deliver solutions more
effectively.
