The Western Australian offshore oil and gas industry is moving to deeper water.
The recent introduction of Floating LNG facilities (FLNG) offshore WA and the potential for future deep water, remote oil and gas production requires the development of new deep water technologies to bring these hydrocarbon reserves to shore.
This course has been designed to meet the need for engineers who possess the high level skill-sets that the subsea industry requires.
It is tailored to provide graduate entry for legal registration purposes, and supports the needs of the existing workforce through a series of advanced units in offshore processing, geomechanics and hydrodynamics.
As a subsea graduate you may pursue a career with various members of the oilfield industry including major oil companies, subsea equipment suppliers and service companies.
Credit for previous study
Application for credit for recognised learning (CRL) are assessed on an individual basis. The successful completion of the Graduate Diploma in Subsea Engineering will also be assessed for credit exemptions.
