About the SUT
The Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) is a multidisciplinary learned society that brings together organisations and individuals with a common interest in underwater technology, ocean science and offshore engineering.
SUT was founded in 1966 and has members from more than 40 countries, including engineers, scientists, other professionals and students working in these areas. In recent decades many of our members have come from the offshore hydrocarbon sector, today we also see growing numbers of members from offshore renewables, marine autonomous systems, and the policy, law and insurance sectors who support offshore activities of many kinds.
The Underwater Association which also commenced operations in 1966 had a long-standing relationship with SUT, and merged with us in 1992, having played a key role in establishing safer diving practices in consultation with the UK Health & Safety Executive. Their legacy can be particularly seen in the work of our Diving & Manned Submersibles Committee.
