mashcon

The 6th MASHCON conference is hosted by the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering at Strathclyde University, one of the world's leading universities in the field of marine and ocean engineering.

The university is located in the heart of Glasgow and has a vibrant, international community with almost 23,000 students from over 100 countries.

Glasgow, situated at the River Clyde, is one of the UK's largest cities and has a rich maritime history. The main influence on the River Clyde's importance as a shipbuilding centre was the advent of the steam powered ship, from the building of the 'Comet' in Port Glasgow in 1812. The 'Comet' was the first sea going steam ship in Europe and the River Clyde and Glasgow flourished as a steam ship building centre from then up to the First World War.

Some of the biggest ships in the world of their time were built on the Clyde, e.g. the 'Lusitania' in 1907, the Queen Mary and the Queen Elizabeth, the largest ever passenger liner. From the Second World War ship building world wide has decreased and from being a river lined with shipyards, there are now only a handful left on the Clyde. However, many scale models of ships which were built in Glasgow can be seen at the Museum of Transport, which will be visited by the conference participants.
