The University of Southampton
Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute

 

The Southampton Marine and Maritime Postgraduate Group (SMMPG), the student wing of the Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute, brings together postgraduate researchers working across all academic faculties. Our members specialise in everything from maritime literature to coastal engineering, and bringing these diverse perspectives together lets us challenge and expand our existing understanding of the marine and maritime world.

The SMMPG was created to provide an informal, supportive setting for postgraduate students to share their research with each other - and to socialise with fellow members of the maritime community.

 

Discussing maritime topics
SMMPG Meeting

Past meetings have included:

 


Feel free to join this group if your interests are with anything maritime! Email the SMMPG comittee with any questions at the SMMPG email. Alternatively, you can join the Facebook group, which will keep you up-to-date on all group activities.

Conferences

We are excited to announce Sea Lines of Communication: Discovery, to be held on 17 November 2016. The programme and a link to registration can be found here
