The Maritime Engineering Laboratory (LIM/UPC) of the Technical University of Catalonia has long-standing experience in the field of maritime engineering. It is a unit of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering of the School of Civil Engineering of Barcelona. The LIM/UPC is made up of a team of highly qualified professionals who have solid experience and come from different technical and scientific disciplines (mathematics, physics, geology, civil engineering, oceanography, etc.), who are organised into specialised workgroups that are well-coordinated among themselves. This enables a naturally multidisciplinary approach to the services offered. The basic aims are to undertake basic and applied research, to develop oceanographic and maritime technology, to draw up training programmes for different levels and to organise dissemination activities in the maritime and coastal engineering fields. The main research lines are coastal and estuarine hydrodynamics, maritime environment climate.
