Department of Marine Science

We aim to produce highly motivated graduate marine scientists who have the knowledge, abilities and skills to research diverse marine environments.

Our undergraduate and postgraduate students develop a broad understanding of the many interconnected processes related to the Earth’s oceans.

Students have opportunities to study marine organisms and are required to participate in practical field training each semester.

Our Department is actively involved in numerous international collaborative research projects focusing on environmental conservation, fishery and aquaculture, planktonology, phycology, and marine biodiversity.
