Subsea engineering plays a vital role in the exploitation of oil and gas in subsea environments, which are becoming more and more challenging and inaccessible. As more technology is deployed on the seabed, the oil and gas industry needs people with knowledge of subsea engineering to be involved with existing and new offshore projects.

Whatever your motivation, the unique blend of downloadable and online multimedia learning materials, expert tutorial support and peer interaction via a dedicated virtual tutorial forum will ensure a thorough, accurate and up-to-date knowledge of subsea engineering, wherever you are in the world.

During this 12-week part-time subsea engineering course you will:

  • Gain a complete overview of subsea production equipment and systems
  • Understand how subsea systems are designed, installed and operated
  • Discover the technology and processes involved in subsea engineering
  • Examine the production equipment that is placed on the seabed
  • Analyse the connections between the well and the above sea surface production hosts
  • Explore subsea engineering solutions used with fixed platforms or floating production facilities
