We have facilities based both on and off campus. We have our own building, named after Henry Dyer, a famous graduate of Strathclyde. It houses many of our teaching facilities, as well as our researchers and staff.
Most of our experimental research is carried out at Kelvin Hydrodynamics Laboratory, situated near the West of Scotland Science Park, a few miles from the main Strathclyde campus. Our yacht Catalina is based on the River Clyde at Rhu. It's available for both staff and students to use. We also have the Marine Engineering Laboratory which houses a diesel engine test-bed in a soundproof cell.
The Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering also hosts Full Mission Bridge Simulators and Virtual Reality Lab which enables our researchers and students to understand human capabilities and design ship and offshore systems in a human-centred manner.
At our Henry Dyer computer lab, we provides all the state-of-the-art software packages that are required in the industry. These software packages are utilised in teaching as well as in wide range of research activities.
