Course content

You are taught by industry informed academics from two main energy hubs internationally in Global Subsea Engineering in Aberdeen and Australia. At Aberdeen you have the combined expertise of academics who have closely followed the oil and gas since growth in the 1970s at Aberdeen from which they have been informed by industry in the city.

In Perth Australia you are taught by another major university at Curtin who also work closely with their energy hub both in the Pacific and Asian regions. This partnership gives you the best teaching and future opportunities possible within the Subsea sector in your respective region or to work between the two or in any other world region. You are awarded with a degree from both institutions giving you strength in the global employment market and the level of knowledge you will carry with you.

Subsea Engineering is one of the most challenging areas within the energy industry due to the locations involved in minerals extraction. It is a vital part of the oil and gas industry and though it is technically challenging there is a lot of new technology coming online to improve supply and monitoring in the ocean. You learn in depth skills, application and theory within subsea environments to ensure sufficient knowledge about control, risk management and maintenance, flow assurance, reliability and integrity. You can begin the programme with Curtin by taking Semester 1 and the Project module in Perth and Semester 2 in Aberdeen as an alternative. Graduates from the programme have gone on to successful careers as CEO and MD within existing business and new business and as specialists in Subsea Engineering,.
