Ocean Science & Engineering in Zhejiang Unversity

In May 2009 the Department of Ocean Science and Engineering at Zhejiang University was established.  With the support of the Government and University authorities it has continued to develop and will now become a new college: Ocean College.  A Government investment of 3 billion RMB has enabled the creation of a purpose-built campus to be located in the Zhoushan Archipelago which will provide convenient access to the ocean and the ship building industry.
