Program Description

MSc Subsea and Pipeline Engineering

University of Strathclyde: Faculty of Engineering

Why this course?

As oil is required to be extracted in deeper and rougher seas, new demands continue to be imposed on design development as well as new installation and inspection techniques.

This course is for graduates in naval architecture, offshore engineering, mechanical engineering and related disciplines who want to gain advanced knowledge of subsea systems, designs, and installation. This includes systems and equipment such as:

  • pipelines
  • wellheads
  • drilling rigs
  • riser & mooring systems

You’ll study

Your course will be made up of three components:

  • Instructional modules
  • Group project
  • Individual project (MSc only)
  • Group project

You’ll be part of a group of three to five people in ‘consultant teams’ for 10 weeks addressing a practical engineering problem. You’ll then have the opportunity to present the report to a panel of industry experts.

This project will enhance your team working and communication skills. It also provides valuable access to industry contacts.

It will give you a good understanding of all aspects of research work. In addition, the technological study must be accompanied by a survey of the relevance and applicability of the findings to the maritime industries at large.

You'll learn efficient ways to gather information, to distribute workload and to delegate amongst the group, to analyze their results and to appreciate the broader implications of the whole project. In-depth technological studies will be accompanied by increasingly important competence in managerial skills, quality assurance and a sound appreciation of the economic, political, social and environmental issues crucial to professional success.

Individual project (MSc only)

MSc students will take on an individual dissertation on a topic of their own interest. The aim of the individual project is to develop your research skills and to combine many of aspects learned from other modules within a specific topic. This will be achieved by you carrying out work on a particular topic relating to your chosen theme and preparing a dissertation.
