Programme Overview

Subsea engineering plays a vital role in the exploitation of oil and gas resources. This programme has been developed in conjunction with firms in the industry and is designed for both experienced and recently graduated engineers who want to develop their subsea knowledge. Modules are delivered in short ‘intensive schools’ and feature industry guest speakers, site visits, industry-based projects and multidisciplinary teaching.


You take compulsory modules which are delivered as short, intensive schools with time after the module to complete the assignments, where applicable. You also undertake a research project leading to a dissertation. The research project is supported by an academic supervisor and may be conducted with an industrial partner which, where appropriate, may be your employer.

A programme timetable is available on the School's webpages, but please note that this may not be for your year of entry and is for guidance purposes only.
