This website earmarks the role and contribution that MTC will bestow to the maritime community. As the first director of the center, it is my wish that this will be a relishing start for the MTC to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in marine technology. It is also my solemn desire to chart MTC’s path into a research center that delivers the greatest benefit to mankind.

MTC started with a visionary idea and over a span of about 20 years develops from its initial flicker into a full pledge marine research station. The MTC is now equipped with good scientific equipment, strong willed personnel and a farfetched dream of becoming a premier marine research center.
