Course summary
Source: HOTCOURSES, January 2017.

This course enables you to practice as a pipeline engineer. The oil and gas industry help to specify the curriculum so we meet their requirements in high-pressure offshore and onshore pipelines.

You will gain: an understanding of the key steps in a pipeline's lifecycle: design, construction, installation, asset management, maintenance and dismantling, experience from specialists in pipeline operation, the ability to develop a thesis through selection of appropriate experimental, computer simulation or data analysis procedures, skills in identifying, designing and applying laboratory tests to solve pipeline engineering problems, knowledge in applying appropriate mathematical models in the simulation of pipeline engineering problems.

MAR8076 Commercial Awareness (5 Credits) - Core

The aims of this module are: A1: to raise the students? commercial awareness and equip them with the basics of key business, financial and management concepts, tools and techniques; A2: to help students appreciate the importance of interpersonal skills and how these can be enhanced; A3: to introduce Health and Safety issues in the workplace.

MAR8097 : Pipeline Engineering Project (30 Credits) - Core

This module aims to present an opportunity to undertake advanced research on pipeline engineering or an offshore engineering related topic working largely alone, and to present in a structured form the results of that research. The research may be of a critical review or computational or experimental or a combination of each and to acquire knowledge in a specialised topic, possibly outside the scope of taught modules.

MAR8013 : Asset Management (5 Credits) - Core

This module aims to provide students with knowledge of the management and maintenance of high pressure pipelines and also to provide students with knowledge of key engineering processes.
