From the beginning the Department of Ocean Science and Engineering has been set up to build up a world leading program of research and education in oceanography. Teaching and research at the department are currently focused on physical oceanography, microbial oceanography and marine geomicrobiology, marine geophysics, and ocean engineering. Faculty at the department will actively participate in, or lead the international ocean research projects/programs aiming to rapidly increase the international exposure of the South University of Science and Technology of China.
The top priority of the Department of Ocean Science and Engineering is to build up a word-class team of faculty. By the end of March 2019 the faculty team includes 1 Academician of Chinese Academy of Science, 2 National Science Foundation for Distinguished Young Scholars. The main research areas of teachers include: Marine plate and internal structure of the Earth; interaction between ocean lithosphere and marginal sea; marine sediments and oil and gas and mineral resources; marine geological microbes; marine microbial resources; biogeochemistry; ocean circulation and climate; sea-air interaction; marine engineering technology; Marine engineering structure, etc.
Building upon the platform provided by the Institute of Ocean Engineering of Shenzhen which is funded by the Shenzhen City Government, the Department of Ocean Science and Engineering will soon become an oceanographic institution equipped with a research vessel (R/V Shenzhen), a dock, and a multidisciplinary laboratory of ocean engineering, which will allow us to keep breast with the world-leading institutions of oceanography such as the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and ,the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in the United States, and the National Oceanography Centre in Southhapmton of the United Kingdom.
