Course Summary

This course is for graduates in naval architecture, offshore engineering, mechanical engineering and related disciplines who want to gain advanced knowledge of subsea systems, designs and installation. This includes systems and equipment such as: pipelines; wellheads; drilling rigs; riser & mooring systems. As oil is required to be extracted in deeper and rougher seas, new demands continue to be imposed on design development as well as new installation and inspection techniques. This course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) and The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology, (IMarEST) on behalf of the UK Engineering Council.

The aim of the individual project is to develop your research skills and to combine many of aspects learned from other modules within a specific topic. This will be achieved by you carrying out work into a particular topic relating to your chosen theme and preparing a dissertation. Offshore hydrocarbon activities are moving into area of water depths exceeding 2000m. Subsea drilling, production and control systems are becoming much more important. Therefore, subsea engineers are in great demand world-wide. Students can exit at Postgraduate Diploma level.
