Program Description

MSc in Offshore and Ocean Technology with Subsea Engineering

Cranfield University

Subsea engineering focuses on the deepwater issues of oil and gas exploitation. Operations have moved from relatively shallow water to depths that now demand totally different engineering solutions. The Offshore and Ocean Technology with Subsea Engineering MSc course addresses both the hardware that is used subsea, such as wellheads and separators, as well as important issues such as field layout, flow assurance and installation/maintenance.

Course overview

The course comprises eight one-week assessed modules, a group project, and an individual thesis project. Students undertaking the Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) complete the eight modules and the group project. Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert) students are required to complete six of the eight modules.
