  • Cross–fertilisation and dissemination of ideas, experience, and information between workers in industry, applied research and technology, academic research, and government.
  • Development of techniques and tools to explore, study and enhance the benefits that the oceans provide.
  • Proper economic and sociological usage of resources in and beneath the oceans.
  • Further education of scientists and technologists to maintain high standards in marine science and technology.

The branch aims to maintain a programme of initiatives grouped under the headings:

  • Events: knowledge sharing, collaborations, CPD, and social
  • Education and Training: including the renowned Subsea Awareness Course
  • Special Projects: including involvement in initiatives such as NASA in Aberdeen and the popular Christmas lectures for schools
