About

The MSc in Offshore, Subsea and Pipeline Engineering at the Newcastle University will deepen your knowledge, giving you the essential skills required to become a practising engineer in a demanding industry.

Overview

Newcastle University is home to the largest and broadest dedicated marine technology research group in the UK, this means you'll be taught by leaders in their field. You'll also benefit from our cutting-edge facilities.

Our MSc is designed for graduates in:

  • marine technology/engineering
  • offshore engineering
  • naval architecture
  • mechanical engineering
  • related disciplines

You will focus on the fundamentals of Offshore, Subsea and Pipeline Engineering and develop knowledge and skills in the following which are critical in the industry:

  • the dynamics of offshore installations
  • advanced structural design
  • marine risers, umbilicals and mooring lines
  • reliability and integrity management of marine systems
Our close industry links ensure you'll engage and network with key engineering companies as part of an enhanced learning journey. Our industrial partners will teach you the key design and manufacturing skills required in the sector. You will also learn about operational methods by site visits to manufacturing facilities. These include:
  • design and manufacture of subsea umbilicals with TechnipFM
  • offshore pipeline and cable laying methods as well as subsea trench operations with Royal IHC
  • teaching of subsea valves with BEL Valves
  • design and manufacture of flexible risers with Baker Hughes

These site visits will enable you to put theory into practice, as well as enhance your industry networks

Accreditation

Our course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) on behalf of the Engineering Council. This means that you are automatically recognised as satisfying the educational requirements leading to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.

The Royal Institution of Naval Architects is an internationally renowned professional institution whose members are involved at all levels in the design, construction, maintenance and operation of marine vessels and structures. Members of RINA are widely represented in industry, universities and colleges, and maritime organisations in over 90 countries.

IMarEST is the first Institute to bring together marine engineers, scientists and technologists into one international multi-disciplinary professional body.

Our accreditations give you an additional benchmark of quality to your degree, making you more attractive to graduate employers. It can also open the door to higher-level jobs, most of which require Chartered Engineer status.
