Students will be encouraged to start their dissertation at the beginning of the programme. During the Summer term students will be expected to intensify their effort on their dissertation project, researching the dissertation topic full time. Part time students will be allowed an extended period to execute their dissertation project in line with the overall programme duration. However, they will be expected to devote an equivalent of one day per week on their dissertation project.
This programme has been developed with extensive consultation with the industry. It will be delivered primarily by Brunel staff members and also by industrial specialists. The programme structure is shown below and comprises two parts. The first, taught part, includes a set of core modules. The programme provides fundamentals of structural and process engineering, and focuses on providing an understand of how to design oil and gas structures such as pipelines, offshore and onshore to withstand internal loading induced by complex internal flows of oil and gas and also external loads such as waves and wind. Throughout fundamental mathematical, computational, experimental, testing and inspection techniques as well as codes of practice are taken into account. Civil engineering and construction aspects are also taught. Part two comprises the dissertation project.
