Organisation profile

Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering is a highly active research department, with world-leading expertise in a number of research areas. Our main research interests lie in:

  • Ship Stability and Safety
  • Marine Hydrodynamics
  • Marine Structures
  • Ocean Engineering
  • Marine Engineering
  • Emerging Technologies
  • Marine Renewable Energy and Alternative fuels 

NAME staff participate in a wide range of research projects and networks funded by the EPSRC, EU, and the UK government.NAME makes a significant contribution to National, European and International policy-making in Marine Technology research and its application through the participation of members of staff in research bodies. 

These research bodies include:

  • Foresight Transport Panel
  • Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) College
  • EU Research & Development Co-ordination Group
  • WEGEMT (an association of 43 EU Universities involved in Marine Technology and Related Sciences).

As well as some major international bodies:

  • International Standards Organisation (ISO)
  • International Maritime Organisation (IMO)
  • Offshore Structures Code
  • International Towing Tank Conference (ITTC)
  • International Ship Structures Committee (ISSC)

NAME attracts researchers and visiting academics from a wide range of prestigious institutions worldwide. Strong collaborative research links with UK and overseas Universities provide the basis for continuous interchange between research staff and students. Recent visitors include more than 20 academics from renowned Universities all around the world.
