M. Robinson Swift
Ph.D. University of New Hampshire, 1972
- Professor of Mechanical Engineering
- Professor of Ocean Engineering
Ocean Engineering: offshore aquaculture, hydrofoil/fast sweep conversion, development of submergence plane technology, oil spill response engineering, compliant ocean structures, estuarine tidal dynamics, and non-point source pollution
Prof. Swift is professionally active in conducting research in ocean engineering. Projects include work in oil spill response engineering, compliant ocean structures, estuarine tidal dynamics and non-point source pollution. He has often offered senior projects in these areas thereby including undergraduates in the research and development experience. Along with serving as the Honors-in-Major coordinator for Mechanical Engineering, he is also the coordinator of Ocean Projects - Tech 797 - a senior design course alternative that offers financial support for projects in the marine area.
