Specialist Interest Groups
Within the SUT, the membership have formed various special interest groups covering: diving and submersibles, education and training, environmental forces, marine renewable energies, ocean resources, offshore site investigation and geotechnics, policy advisory, salvage and decommissioning, subsea engineering and operations, underwater robotics and underwater science. Take a look to see what's going on in their world.
To provide a forum for the development, and for the inter–disciplinary and inter–organisation communication, of all aspects of professional diving and manned submersible technology and operations.
To identify educational and training objectives for the Society and to offer appropriate commentary and advice in such matters.
SUT Group on Environmental Forces (SUTGEF) exists to advance and disseminate knowledge on the environmental forces that act on offshore structures.
The identification, exploration and exploitation of renewable energy technologies in, on and beneath the world’s waters, seas and oceans, and the consideration of the environmental implication of their exploitation.
The identification, exploration and exploitation of living, non–living and energy resources in and beneath the world’s seas and oceans and to consider the environmental implication of their occurrence.
To provide a recognised forum concerning offshore site investigation, foundation behaviour and associated areas of geophysics, geology, geotechnics and the offshore environment.
To provide a forum through which the Society can formulate and express its views on all policies that affect marine science, technology and engineering matters within the Society’s sphere of interests.
The International Salvage & Decommissioning Committee undertakes its activities using a structured agenda that focuses on three key themes: Life, Property and the Environment.
Subsea engineering and operations embraces all aspects of engineering and related operations in the development of the subsea hydrocarbons industry below the surface of the sea. The aim of the Committee is to establish subsea engineering as a recognised discipline of engineering and to examine the needs for education, training and standards.
The Underwater Science Group (USG) is made up of professional scientists, students, and others with an interest in diving and underwater science in areas such as marine biology, oceanography, geology, underwater archaeology and photography.
