Content

The MSc Offshore Engineering programme draws upon the School of Engineering's strengths in both subsea engineering and renewable energy engineering, to investigate modern applications of offshore engineering including marine renewables and subsea oil and gas.

The programme is designed to be accessible to applicants from a wide range of engineering disciplines such as civil, petroleum or mechanical engineering, but also electrical and electronic engineers interested in a career in subsea controls.

A unique strength of the MSc Offshore Engineering programme at Aberdeen is the inclusion of courses on marine renewables and marine environment impact assessments, alongside courses on subsea construction, which gives our graduates greater opportunities across the wider field of marine energy. In particular, this aspect of the programme appeals to engineers working within the subsea oil and gas industry, who are looking to diversify towards offshore renewable energy.

Entry Requirements

A 2:1 (upper second class) UK Honours degree, or an Honours degree from a non-UK institution which is judged by the University to be of equivalent worth in any branch of Engineering.

Students with a 2:1 in Applied Mathematics or Physics may also be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Those with a 2:2 Honours degree in Engineering may also be considered if they can demonstrate 3+ years of relevant industry experience.
