As a campus of Memorial University of Newfoundland, the Fisheries and Marine Institute is Canada’s most comprehensive centre for education, training, applied research and industrial support for the ocean industries.

Located on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, we are one of the most respected centres of marine learning and applied research in the world.

The Marine Institute provides more than 20 industry-driven programs ranging from technical certificates to master’s degrees. In addition to undergraduate and graduate degrees, the Institute offers advanced diplomas, diplomas of technology and technical certificates.

Students enjoy a learning environment where small class sizes are the rule, hands on instruction is a way of life and competition tuition rates put an internationally-recognized education well within reach.

The Institute also runs a variety of short courses and industrial response programs.  All programs and courses are designed to provide students with knowledge and skills required for success in the workforce.

The Institute has three Schools – the School of Fisheries, the School of Maritime Studies and the School of Ocean Technology - and within these Schools a number of specialized centres and units.

These centres and units lead the Institute, both nationally and internationally, in applied research and technology transfer and in the provision of training to a variety of industry clients.
