Marine Technology Society


The Marine Technology Society was incorporated in June 1963 to give members of academia, government and industry a common forum for the exchange of information and ideas. Our guiding purpose is:

"To promote awareness, understanding, advancement, and application of marine technology."

Today, MTS is a growing organization, boasting a membership of businesses, institutions, individual professionals and students who are ocean engineers, technologists, policy makers and educators.


  • 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 education programs
  • Advance the development of the tools and procedures required to explore, study and further the responsible and sustainable use of the oceans.
