Department of Oceanography is a newly formed department of Noakhali Science and Technology University, Bangladesh, and started its journey from December 2016.Department of Oceanography is dedicated to education and research to advance understanding of the ocean science through use of scientific research, oceanographic observations, data modelling and development of new technologies and its interaction with the Earth system and contributing greatly to the country's blue economy.
The way in which we intend to achieve our mission is by (i) undertaking internationally competitive oceanographic research and education with a long-term focus, (ii) working for the effective translation of new and existing knowledge into demonstrably high societal benefits and (iii) manage, develop, coordinate and innovate high quality large research infrastructure, equipment pools, and enabling functions for the benefit of Bangladesh to deliver excellent education and science with impact.
The Department of Oceanography at NSTU, aims to advance our knowledge of the ocean environment around the globe and particularly Bay of Bengal (BOB). Emphasis will be given to the physical, chemical, biological, geological and atmospheric aspects of the oceans around BOB, but the intention is to use this new knowledge to draw conclusions which are globally relevant. Department of Oceanography’s goal is to advance marine sciences through observation, experimentation and modeling, and to provide excellent educational and research opportunities for graduate and undergraduates in Bangladesh with degrees in Oceanography. Depending on their oceanographic degree and specialist module choices,graduates from the Department of Oceanography can apply for jobs in following areas:
