Chartered Marine Technologist (CMarTech)
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. SUT has self-governing branches in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Malaysia, Nigeria, Norway, Singapore & USA in addition to the original UK branch.
The Marine Technology Society (MTS) promotes awareness, understanding, and the advancement and application of marine technology. Incorporated in 1963, MTS brings together businesses, institutions, professionals, academics, and students who are ocean engineers, technologists, policy makers, and educators. MTS has global membership, with a large Japan branch but is mostly based in the USA.
Both Societies have similar missions to facilitate a broader understanding of the relevance of marine technology to wider global issues by enhancing the dissemination of marine technology information; promote and improve marine technology and related educational programs; and advance the development of the tools and procedures required to explore, study and further the responsible and sustainable use of the oceans.
To that end, the Marine Technology Society & Society for Underwater Technology, through a partnership with the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST), now offer marine technology professionals the opportunity to seek the title of Chartered Marine Technologist (CMarTech).
This qualification will be launched and open to Members in late June 2021.
