Specialist Interest Groups
Within the SUT, the membership have formed various special interest groups covering: diving and submersibles, education and training, environmental forces, marine renewable energies, ocean resources, offshore site investigation and geotechnics, policy advisory, salvage and decommissioning, subsea engineering and operations, underwater robotics and underwater science. Take a look to see what's going on in their world.
To provide a forum for the development, and for the inter–disciplinary and inter–organisation communication, of all aspects of professional diving and manned submersible technology and operations.
Diving and Crewed Submersibles
To identify educational objectives for the Society and to offer appropriate commentary and advice in such matters.
SUT Group on Environmental Forces (SUTGEF) exists to advance and disseminate knowledge on the environmental forces that act on offshore structures.
Environmental Forces (SUTGEF)
The identification, exploration and exploitation of renewable energy technologies in, on and beneath the world’s waters, seas and oceans, and the consideration of the environmental implication of their exploitation.
Marine Renewable Energies
The identification, exploration and exploitation of living, non–living and energy resources in and beneath the world’s seas and oceans and to consider the environmental implication of their occurrence.
To provide a recognised forum concerning offshore site investigation, foundation behaviour and associated areas of geophysics, geology, geotechnics and the offshore environment.
OSIG (Offshore Site Investigation and Geotechnics) and ECOSIGG
To provide a forum through which the Society can formulate and express its views on all policies that affect marine science, technology and engineering matters within the Society’s sphere of interests.
SUT – Policy Advisory
The International Salvage & Decommissioning Committee undertakes its activities using a structured agenda that focuses on three key themes: Life, Property and the Environment.
Salvage and Decommissioning
Subsea engineering and operations embraces all aspects of engineering and related operations in the development of the subsea hydrocarbons industry below the surface of the sea. The aim of the Committee is to establish subsea engineering as a recognised discipline of engineering and to examine the needs for education, training and standards.
SUT is proud to be a partner in the Horizon 2020 BRIDGES programme
Panel on Underwater Robotics
The Underwater Science Group (USG) is made up of professional scientists, students, and others with an interest in diving and underwater science in areas such as marine biology, oceanography, geology, underwater archaeology and photography.
Underwater Science Group
Our various branches around the world all offer support for young professionals. You can find out more from your local branch here: Perth – YES! (Young Engineers and Scientists) Houston – Student Chapters, Learning Programmes UK – SUT+ in London or Aberdeen
Young Professionals International
A forum for professionals from industry, academia, and government to discuss and share ideas, technologies, applications, concepts, and policies for marine environmental science.
Marine Environmental Science
The UXO SIG was formed in early 2021 to address issues with UXO in the marine environment particularly in the offshore wind industry. The forum is for professionals from industry, academia and government to discuss and share ideas, technologies, applications, concepts and guidance for dealing with UXO when developing projects.
UXO (Unexploded Ordnance)
The Defence SIG provides a forum for professionals from Navies, industry, academia, and government to discuss and share ideas, technologies, applications, concepts, and guidance for the development and use of technology in the underwater battlespace
