Memorial University of NewfoundlandAdd to Favourites
Memorial University is uniquely positioned in the harsh maritime environment of Newfoundland and Labrador. Memorial’s faculty members are global experts in the fields of ocean engineering and science, offshore industry and policy, and technology. Their work is supported by world-class research and facilities and strong public partnerships with the people, industries and organizations that live and work here. More than 40 per cent of Memorial University’s research is ocean-related (68 per cent in the Faculty of Science alone). If there’s ocean research happening in the North Atlantic, Memorial is likely involved.
Multidisciplinary collaborative approach
In fact, Memorial is a partner with the Ocean Frontier Institute, a $220 million collaborative research initiative aimed at harnessing the vast potential of the world’s ocean. OFI represents a historic partnership between Memorial, Dalhousie University and the University of Prince Edward Island. OFI was launched in September 2016 thanks to considerable funding from the Canada First Research Excellence Fund and various private and public-sector organizations.
Memorial is also part of Canada’s Ocean Supercluster, a private sector-led partnership using innovation and commercialization to drive increased sustainable economic growth from our oceans.
As one of the top 20 research universities in Canada, Memorial received more than $100 million in research funding in 2017. Memorial and its funding partners have long believed in investing in talented students and we’re proud to say we have more than 1,500 graduate fellowships and 840 PhD students.
Memorial’s Marine Institute, a world-leading ocean training and applied research institute, and the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science, home of the world’s only co-operative education program in ocean and naval architectural engineering, are two examples of the programming and facilities available. Memorial also offers specialized centres to support research and innovation in ocean technology, aquaculture, sustainable fishery, marine development and offshore safety.
