Maritime education requires a broad spectrum of knowledge, techniques, and concepts in many disciplines. Hence, sometimes it is not easy to design a formal education program in a professional department in higher education, especially universities. However, transdisciplinary teaching, learning and research is more and more important in many maritime related industry and academics. It is proposed in this paper that two rare units, underwater archaeology program and university museums, could be designed as formal and informal education platforms within campus for multi-disciplinary students to learn maritime affairs, sciences, technologies, applications; and for multi-disciplinary professors to conduct researches, both in interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary ways. In addition, department building / space could be 'museumized' to form an informal professional museum-like atmosphere and generate education chances. Some recent developments in National Cheng Kung University (NCKU) give examples of possible trends.
