Content

This programme will develop you in to a highly-trained, highly-qualified, business-aware graduate who can make an immediate impact in your chosen career, and who will have the drive and skills needed to continuously strengthen the subsea industry.

We have a unique relationship with the subsea industry both locally and internationally, and the programme receives contributions from local industrial organisations in terms of relevant and up-to-the minute contributions to teaching, and support in the specification of group and individual projects.

You will develop an increased technical depth and breadth of knowledge and understanding of the development and operation of subsea technologies and systems. You will develop the intellectual and practical skills required to apply sound engineering principles and analysis methods to the design and installation of subsea systems, and you will learn how to use and adapt appropriate analysis tools and techniques, specialist design software and standards for design improvements and performance optimisation.
