Society of Maritime Technology


The Society of Maritime Technology was founded in 2012 to serve the master students of Maritime Technology. During the bachelors of MT the study association S.G. “William Froude” plays a big role in the connection between students, the university and the industry. However, the board of Froude is always made up by Bachelor students, which causes the main focus on bachelor students by this association. That is why a group of students started a network only focussed on master students MT. Furthermore, it tries to focus on involving and engaging the international students. 

What we do
