About

The MSc Subsea Engineering (Online) programme at University of Aberdeen is widely regarded as one of the best programmes of its kind in the UK. The programme is designed to prepare highly trained engineers for industry, by focusing on the fundamental skills and technical knowledge that are in demand by the subsea sector today.

Overview

The MSc Subsea Engineering (Online) programme at University of Aberdeen focuses on the fundamental skills and technical knowledge needed to prepare graduate engineers for technical leadership roles within the subsea industry.

In particular, you will gain increased technical knowledge and understanding of the development and operation of subsea technologies and systems, from wellhead to topside structure interconnections, as well as the intellectual and practical skills needed to apply sound engineering principles and analysis methods to the design and installation of subsea systems.

You will also learn to use and adapt appropriate analysis tools and techniques, specialist design software and standards for design improvements and performance optimisation. In addition, you will have the opportunity to further enhance your transferable and personal skills in self-study, communication, report writing, project and time management, and problem solving.

With 40% of all the world's subsea installations located in the North Sea, Aberdeen is Europe’s leading centre for subsea development and operation. A cluster of world-leading subsea technology companies has developed around Aberdeen over the last four decades, including TechnipFMC, Aker Solutions, GE Oil & Gas, Subsea 7 and Bibby Offshore, supported by an extensive network of supply chain companies.

The School of Engineering plays a central role in researching and developing new technology to maximise recovery of oil and gas, working alongside leading international companies. The University’s location at the heart of the oil and gas industry also means that our degree programmes benefit from direct industry involvement, including industry advisory panels, guest lectures, field trips, site visits, networking and careers events, and industry supported student projects.
