The future exploration and development of Oil and Gas will increasingly move towards offshore drilling and production. This will involve drilling and production rigs, vessels and infrastructure.
Offshore Oil and Gas Engineering activity is increasing all around the world and graduates from this course will have a particular focus on operations in the ocean, processing, pipelines, subsea systems, materials and corrosion. This course is particularly designed for those wishing to move into the Oil and Gas Industry who may not have previous detailed oil and gas knowledge or industry experience.
Another related complementary course is our MSc Oil and Gas Engineering which has more focus in stage 2 on well completions, project management, risk and the environment. An advantage of these two courses is that they are designed to have the same first four stage 1 modules introducing the Oil and Gas industry so that students, having gained more understanding of the industry, can compare the courses and swap between courses during stage 1, as they decide which course they would prefer to follow in stage 2. This flexible approach offers students the advantage of more choice during their study.
Each module comprises up to 52 hours of lectures and tutorials. Significant additional private study is expected during each module.
