Our research supports industry and society in useful and innovative ways. Over the last twenty years we have made a major contribution to the safety of ships around the world through our pioneering work in the stability of damaged ships. We're currently researching a wide range of challenges from reducing carbon emissions from shipping to developing new types of floating wind turbines and new tools for modelling fluid loads on floating structures.

Our staff are internationally recognised for their expertise. We've state-of-the-art facilities, which includes the largest towing/wave tank of any UK academic institution.
Along with our high standards of teaching, we take part in many different research projects and networks funded by the UK government, the EU and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council. Our researchers also participate in research bodies such as:
  • the EU Research and Development Co-ordination Group
  • regulatory bodies such as the International Maritime Organisation (IMO) which sets worldwide standards for ship safety
  • international standard-setting bodies such as the International Towing Tank Conference (ITTC) and International Ship and Offshore Structures Congress (ISSC).

This means our students are learning from top-class researchers who are actively involved in industry and key international organisations
