Southern University of Science and Technology - Department of Ocean Science and Engineering

The Department of Ocean Science and Engineering was founded in July, 2015, aiming to build a world-class research and teaching program in oceanography. For the next 5 years, the department will focus on the development of programs in Marine geology and marine geophysics, marine microbiology and biogeochemistry, physical oceanography and atmospheric environment, and ocean engineering technology. Our top priority is recruiting world-class scientists into the faculty of the department.

Our top priority is recruiting world-class scientists into the faculty of the department. Current faculty members in the Department of Ocean Science and Engineering. All faculty members have either studied or working experience abroad and are able to use fluent English in teaching.

Currently, the Department of Ocean Science and Engineering has been approved a Guangdong Provincial Laboratory (Guangzhou) Shenzhen Branch and three key laboratories in Shenzhen: Shenzhen Key Laboratory of Ocean Bottom Seismograph Equipment and Technology Engineering, Shenzhen Key Laboratory of Marine Oil & Gas Drilling Equipment and Pipeline Engineering and Shenzhen Key Laboratory of Marine Archaea Geo-Omics.

Building upon the platform provided by the Institute of Ocean Engineering of Shenzhen, which is funded by the Shenzhen City Government, the Department of Ocean Science and Engineering will soon become an oceanographic institution equipped with a research vessel (R/V Shenzhen), a dock, and a multidisciplinary laboratory of ocean engineering, which will allow us to become in breast with the world-leading institutions of oceanography. Serving the government policy “deep sea exploration”, and contributing to the construction of an Global Ocean Center City in Shenzhen.
