Center for Marine Science & Technology

Based at GSST’s campus in Shenzhen, CMST takes full advantage of Tsinghua's comprehensive research strengths and promotes interdisciplinary collaboration among different departments to further research of regional and national importance.

To this end, CMST leads and participates in a number of major national initiatives, particularly those located in the South China Sea. Current research focuses on identifying and tackling key technical challenges in deep-sea marine technologies, such as sensors, monitoring devices, and other observation technologies; submarine communications network construction; data management; environmental simulation and forecasting; well as fixed and mobile ocean observation platforms. Using Tsinghua’s research strengths and Shenzhen’s vibrant high-tech industry to promote international collaborations and facilitate university-industry partnerships, CMST provides a platform for the practical testing and commercialization of marine technologies.
