A Guide to Marine Careers

Ireland's marine science community includes a wide range of Universities, Institutes of Technology, State and Semi-State bodies, commercial companies, organisations and individuals whose goals include the sustainable development of our marine resource through the application of science and technology.

The Marine Institute produced the booklet Oceans of Opportunity: A Guide to Marine Careers as an introduction to some of the exciting careers available in marine science, engineering and technology.

The guide provides a range of opportunities from entry to trained scientists, professional engineers and skilled technicians who are required in a range of marine sectors from fisheries, aquaculture, seafood processing and seaweed; shipping, ports and services; marine renewable energy; offshore oil and gas and seabed resources; marine and coastal tourism and leisure including cruise tourism; marine information communication technology; marine biotechnology and bio products.
