Professor Atilla Incecik, Vice President of University of Strathclyde and Dean of HITWH International School of Ocean and Science Engineering (HIT-ISOSE), will introduce the trends and updates of interdisciplinary technologies pertinent to ocean exploitation, such as big data, material and unmanned autonomous system, based on a global analysis of key marine technologies in 2030.
Speaker: Professor Atilla Incecik
Time: 7:00 pm, April 13, 2017
China is an ocean power, and the ocean plays a decisive role in the development of national economy. The 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China (NCCPC) also put forward the marine economic powerful nation strategy. Chinese President Xi Jinping further emphasized on accelerating the construction of the “21st-century Maritime Silk Road”. The importance of the marine development of our country in the future is being highlighted, which sets a higher requirement for naval and marine technologies in the “new normal”. Naval and marine technologies have become an important catalyzer for marine industry, and marine technology exhibits the trend that features innovation, globalization, collaboration and interdisciplinary interaction. It has become a significant strategy for China to create more high-level talents in scientific research and engineering construction, nurture international technologies and international talents in developing marine economy, as well as seize the opportunities of extracting marine resources. Future marine technologies will cover such three major areas as merchant shipping, shipbuilding and marine space, in which eighteen key marine technologies will become the key factors in national economy and national defense.
Professor Atilla will present the latest development and trends in marine technology and the key marine technologies in 2030, including unmanned autonomous system, smart ships, deep-sea resources exploitation, sustainable energy, energy management, big data analysis, advanced manufacturing, propulsion and power, shipbuilding technology, robotics, sensors, human-machine interaction, human function reinforcement, communications, cyber and electronic warfare, carbon capture and storage, and marine biotechnology.
In addition, Professor Atilla will also introduce how to join HIT-ISOSE and how to take full advantage of this platform that enables you to study overseas and approach the cutting edge of technologies.
Feel free to come to know more about future key marine technologies and get ready to play a part in future marine economy.
