Release time:2015-05-15 Source:School of Marine Science and Technology, Tianjin University

I. Major feature

  Currently, it has a large room for the improvement of marine science and marine technology in China, and the cultivation of professional talents in marine technology (especially in the area of ocean observation technology) would make the talents guarantee for China’s research on marine science, thus promoting the rapid development of our marine science and marine technology. The major of marine technology in Tianjin University makes ocean observation technology as the engine and support, aiming at our great development strategy and demand for talents in marine science and launching works on academic research and talent cultivation in the following areas:

1. Ocean observation, including theory and technical research of ocean observation, development of Oceanographic observation instruments and equipment, and exploitation of observation platform, and so on.

2. Marine data project, including visualization research of marine data, acquisition, processing and analysing of marine big data, marine platform development, marine GPS project, and so on.

3. Research on navigation technology, including e-navigation, navigation support, and marine positioning, and so on.


II.Training objective

   We aim to cultivate high-level inter-disciplinary talents with good morality and scientific literacy as well as international view, informatization concept and right outlook on ocean, who can master the basic theory, knowledge and practical skills of modern marine technology; can grasp the fundamental knowledge that are related to modern marine technology, such as mechanics, message, hydroacoustics, and laser; can hold the work of developing marine technology, marine environment observation, marine data analysis, marine engineering monitoring, and management on marine science and technology, and so on.
