All nations across the globe are focusing heavily on how to develop and use the ocean and its vast renewable and non-renewable resources. The ocean is the last remaining untapped area of the planet. It holds out hope for mankind to resolve issues such as shortage of food, drinking water, resources such as renewable energy, and environmental issues like global warming and climate change. Oceans, being sources of valuable metals and minerals including polymetalic nodules present in the deeper parts, necessitate the quest for deeper knowledge and development of viable technologies for exploring and exploiting these resources in a sustainable manner for the benefit of mankind.
Ocean Science and Technology is a multi-disciplinary subject that includes marine geology, marine geophysics, marine chemistry, marine biology, marine microbiology, atmospheric science, marine archaeology, etc., thus providing vast career opportunities.
