Message for Students
In order to protect the global environment and solve the energy issue, it is important to save the energy for marine transportation or develop the under water resources. We are challenging to improve the ship performance by means of computational fluid dynamics or trying to develop a high performance underwater vehicle for sea bottom resources exploration collaborating with ship building company or other research institute. We always welcome all students who have passions to solve those difficult problems.
