At the moment, NTNU Ocean Club consists of around 30 students working as volunteers, some of whom will end their volunteership, and be replaced by you. After the application process is over, we might end up as slightly more, or slightly fewer people. This depends on whether new applicants bring a lot of fresh ideas with them, in which case we might need to expand our organization to facilitate these ideas. NTNU Ocean Club work to engage students interested in the ocean, and its related academia and industries. This is our mission statement, and the underlying motivation in everything we do. We believe that utilizing the ocean (sustainably) is key to progressing economically, socially, and technologically in the future. To achieve this we have launched several events and products. To name a few:
- Ocean Challenge: A case competition where students fought to present the best solution to a current problem within the ocean industries.
- Ocean Talks: Our series of popular science talks. Themes ranging from deep sea mining to microplastic pollution.
- Ocean blog:Our newsletter where we write short articles about various topics we find interesting (and hope others do too) and update you on whats going on in the club.
- Conferences: We have helped arrange a number of conferences like the Aqua Nor Student Day 2017, and Ocean Week.
In addition to this, we're also continuously expanding our network, and use this network to create shortcuts between students and exisiting opportunities. We do this in various ways, e.x. by attending conferences and other events.
