Nelson Mandela University has begun an exciting journey towards becoming the "go-to" destination for Ocean Sciences in Africa.
It has already developed a whole range of marine and maritime education and training, research, innovation and engagement programmes to support the continent’s blue economy. On 22 September, the University launched its own dedicated Ocean Sciences Campus – the first of its kind in South Africa.
Partnerships with other universities, the Nelson Mandela Bay metro, government and other key industry players are in place to ensure a collective drive towards embracing the untapped potential of the oceans economy in a sustainable manner.
From Arts to Zoology, the new transdisciplinary way of working together means everyone can benefit in the University’s vision of becoming the leading destination for all Ocean Sciences related teaching, learning, research and engagement in Africa.
