The MSc Offshore Engineering programmeat University of Aberdeen is designed to be accessible to applicants from a wide range of engineering disciplines such as civil, petroleum or mechanical engineering, but also electrical and electronic engineers interested in a career in subsea controls.
A unique strength of the MSc Offshore Engineering programme at Aberdeen is the inclusion of courses on marine renewables and marine environment impact assessments, alongside courses on subsea construction, which gives our graduates greater opportunities across the wider field of marine energy. In particular, this aspect of the programme appeals to engineers working within the subsea oil and gas industry, who are looking to diversify towards offshore renewable energy.
Scotland is leading the way in tidal stream and wave energy projects. The Scottish government has a target 100% of gross electricity consumption to come from renewables by 2020, of which offshore wind is expected to make the greatest contribution. The established engineering expertise and offshore experience based in the northeast of Scotland means that Aberdeen has emerged as a hub for offshore renewable engineering in recent years.
There are many opportunities at the University of Aberdeen to develop your knowledge, gain experience and build a competitive set of skills to enhance your employability. This is essential for your future career success. The Careers Service can help you to plan your career and support your choices throughout your time with us, from first to final year – and beyond.
