As a department, we're over 130 years old. In that time, we've become a key provider of Marine Technology expertise throughout the UK, and the world. We're building on Glasgow’s rich heritage of naval architecture and shipbuilding. That's why we provide first class graduates and research for the maritime, oil & gas and offshore renewables industries across the world.

We have students from almost 50 countries.
