Pipeline Integrity Management is a corporate validated award offered by Northumbria University in partnership with Penspen Ltd. as a Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert), a Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip) and a Masters (MSc).

Each award must be studied in sequence; therefore all modules shown in the PG Cert and PG Dip must be completed before the Masters Project may be studied. For more information on the PGCert and PGDip portions of this course, please view the relevant hyperlinks below:
PGCert - https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/study-at-northumbria/courses/pipeline-integrity-management-dtpimp6/

PGDip - https://www.northumbria.ac.uk/study-at-northumbria/courses/pipeline-integrity-management-dtppip6/

Oil and gas are the world’s major sources of primary energy, and 3,500,000 km of large diameter, high pressure pipelines transport most of these hydrocarbons around the world. The pipelines carry vast quantities of energy and represent big business; for example, a large pipeline transporting 1,000,000 barrels of oil per day, with oil priced at $US100/barrel, will deliver $US36.5 billion of oil each year!

Many of these pipelines are ageing – they are typically over 30 years old - but are required to operate for many more decades to meet increasing demand, and as new sources of oil and gas are discovered. Hence, their ‘integrity’ (safety and security of supply) is a major challenge for their operators. Pipelines have an excellent safety record, but failures do occur, sometimes with tragic consequences.

There is a shortage of skilled pipeline engineers in the world today, together with an increasing need, as the pipelines continue to age, for pipeline engineers with specific skills in pipeline integrity. This distance learning course enables students to understand and apply the theory and practice of pipeline integrity engineering in a work-based environment. The course aims to produce highly skilled and professional graduates in key aspects of pipeline integrity - in particular ensuring the continued safety of ageing pipelines.

This is the first course of its kind and a market-leader, its development primarily driven by the skills-crisis within the industry. The masters typically takes 36 months to complete (PG Dip + 12 months) and is available with January and September starts. It is achieved after completing a total of 180 credits (the PG Dip 120 credits in Integrity Assessments, Land Pipeline Engineering, Pipelines and Geohazards, Pipelines Risk and Materials Technology, plus a further 60 credits from the MSc Project).

On completion of the course, students will have relevant skills in dealing with the special problems facing pipelines: assessing pipeline damage, assessing risk, and corrosion problems, as well as general knowledge in pipeline engineering. The course presents a holistic view of pipeline integrity, which ensures students understand the history, theory, and foundations of the technologies they will use.

A higher degree by research involves training in research methods and systematic, high level study of a research project. The nature of the work and the time it takes to finish the research means a research degree is demanding and needs great commitment.

You must present your results in a thesis, explain the methods used in your research and defend them in an oral examination.

To get an MPhil you must critically investigate and evaluate an approved topic and display an understanding of suitable research methods.

Materials and Engineering Research Institute (MERI)

MERI is a multi-disciplinary research institute encompassing four research centres each with their own specialist groups operating within them. We undertake high quality academic research across a range of disciplines and apply this research knowledge in a commercial and industrial context. Research areas include • polymers and composites • solar energy • structural integrity and corrosion • functional coatings • simulation and modelling • robotics.

In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise we were the leading post–92 university in metallurgy and materials (UoA29). 75 per cent of our staff were judged to be internationally leading and we obtained a Times Higher Education average score of 2.15 reflecting the quality of our work and world class staff.

Our staff include • chemists • materials scientists • physicists • computer scientists • mechanical, electronic and electrical engineers, all working on individual or collaborative projects shared between research centres. Supported by a £6m equipment base, which will shortly undergo a £4m refurbishment, this inter-disciplinary approach enables us to solve complex problems ranging from fracture of artificial implants through to designing surfaces that can withstand frictional temperatures in excess of 1,000 degrees centigrade. Solutions to these kinds of problems put MERI at the top in terms of industrial collaboration.

The Materials Research and Analysis Service (MARS) is also a key strength in the research institute, established to provide regional business with access to research facilities and analysis, which enhances the capability of companies in terms of new and improved products.

Evidence of MERI’s research strength is reflected in the patent portfolio that currently consists of 22 granted patents with another 17 applications in progress.

MERI is made up of five centres of excellence

  1. The Thin Films Research Centre
  2. The Centre for Automation and Robotics Research
  3. The Polymers Nanocomposites and Modelling Research Centre
  4. The Structural Materials and Integrity Research Centre
  5. Materials Analysis and Research Services, Centre for Industrial Collaboration (MARS) (CIC)
