Overview:

The Marine Technology Society was incorporated in June 1963 to give members of academia, government and industry a common forum for the exchange of information and ideas. Our guiding purpose is:

  • To promote awareness, understanding, advancement and application of marine technology.

Our mission is to:

  • Promote and improve marine technology and related educational programs
