Call for Interest in Society of Underwater Technology – Atlantic Canada Branch (St. John’s Chapter)

The Society for Underwater Technology (www.sut.org) is a multidisciplinary learned society that brings together organisations and individuals with a common interest in underwater technology, ocean science, and offshore engineering.

The society is seeking to establish a Branch in Atlantic Canada, with the first Chapter in St. John’s. Interested parties are requested to contact Paul Ryan, from the Marine Institute, at paul.ryan@mi.mun.ca or 778 0334.

One message often head from local industry organizations is that their members are seldom aware of what research is going on at MUN, and that they’d like an opportunity to find applications for the pure research that occurs, and to engage in some applied research with MUN that might benefit their company. As you will see on the web site, this is a prime aim of the SUT, with events such as Research Updates to Industry, Industry Updates to Academia and Government, Evening Technical Briefings, and much more:

THE AIMS OF THE SOCIETY

The SUT was founded to promote the further understanding of the underwater environment and to encourage:

  • cross–fertilisation and dissemination of ideas, experience and information between workers in academic research, applied research and technology, industry and government
  • development of techniques and tools to explore, study and exploit the oceans
  • 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.

SUT BRANCHES

The SUT has branches throughout the world. Members of the SUT also get access to the international Branch Office members, and as this is a UK based organization, those offices are worldwide, and in many of the target markets of our local companies:

  • Aberdeen
  • Brazil
  • China
  • Houston
  • London & S.England
  • Malaysia – Kuala Lumpur
  • Melbourne
  • North of England
  • Norway
  • Perth
  • Singapore

Another highlight of the SUT are the “Special Interest Groups” in specific area of expertise, designed to bring together international like-minded individuals: https://www.sut.org/specialist-interest-groups/
