Subsea Engineering and Management MSc

Subsea Engineering and Management MSc

Full time: 12 months, part time: 24 or maximum 36 months

Profile

Developed with industry, the course focuses on subsea engineering in the exploitation of oil and gas. The course is for experienced or recently graduated engineers.

Subsea engineering plays a vital role in the exploitation of oil and gas resources. We work with the subsea engineering industry to develop the modules you will study. This means that the skills and knowledge you develop are relevant and appropriate to the industry you will work in. 

What you'll learn

Your teaching modules operate in short 'intensive schools' with time after the module to complete the assignments, where applicable. They include:

  • input from industry experts
  • site visits
  • industry-based projects
  • teaching from other disciplines

Teaching consists of lectures, practical sessions, seminars and personal supervision covering a variety of topics in subsea engineering. The degree is taught using a mix of the academic staff from the School of Engineering as well as visiting lecturers and experts from industry.

You will undertake a research project leading to a dissertation. This may be a critical review and/or computational or experimental project using the University's world leading testing facilities. The research project is supported by an academic supervisor and may be conducted with an industrial partner which, where appropriate, may be your employer.

Delivery

Eight taught modules worth 100 credits are delivered in blocks through semester one and/or two. A dissertation or research project, worth 80 credits, is undertaken across the three semesters.
