This course enables you to practice as a pipeline engineer. The oil and gas industry help to specify the curriculum so we meet their requirements in high-pressure offshore and onshore pipelines.
You will gain: an understanding of the key steps in a pipeline's lifecycle: design, construction, installation, asset management, maintenance and dismantling; experience from specialists in pipeline operation; the ability to develop a thesis through selection of appropriate experimental, computer simulation or data analysis procedures; skills in identifying, designing and applying laboratory tests to solve pipeline engineering problems; knowledge in applying appropriate mathematical models in the simulation of pipeline engineering problems.
Teaching consists of lectures, practical sessions, seminars and personal supervision covering a variety of topics in pipeline engineering. The degree is taught using a mix of academic staff from the School of Marine Science and Technology as well as visiting lecturers and experts from industry.
You will choose an individual dissertation project. This may be a critical review and/or computational or experimental project using our world leading testing facilities. You also benefit from participating in projects sponsored directly by industry partners whenever they are available.
A 2:1 honours degree, or international equivalent, in: mechanical engineering; chemical engineering; civil engineering; metallurgical or materials engineering; offshore engineering; naval architecture.If your first language is not English you need an overall IELTS score of 6.5. You may need an ATAS (Academic Technology Approval Scheme) clearance certificate.
