At the Centre for Applied Ocean Technology (CTec) Marine Institute collaborates with industry and others on the development and application of technology for the practical benefit of all sectors of the maritime community.
CTec undertakes applied research and development in two key areas:
The guiding principles of its applied research and development efforts are to:
- respond to the evolving technology needs of key ocean industries such as fisheries, shipping, offshore oil and gas
- wherever possible and practical, work collaboratively with the ocean technology industry in Canada
- provide work experience and employment opportunities for students and graduates of School of Ocean Technology programs
CTec’s goal is to enhance the safety, efficiency, sustainability and profitability of maritime pursuits through the application of technology. Technologies and expertise help bridge the gap between ‘knowing’ and ‘doing.’
