Our Offshore Engineering MSc provides you with the specialist education necessary to enter the offshore engineering industry. You will specialise in the design, dynamic and strength analysis of fixed and floating offshore oil and gas platforms. You will also study subsea systems, including marine systems to produce renewable energy.

About

Teaching consists of lectures, practical sessions, seminars and personal supervision covering a variety of topics in offshore engineering.

You also choose an individual dissertation project. This may be theoretical, experimental or the development of a simulation model of hydrodynamics and/or structural strength of offshore systems.
Research strengths include:
  • hydrodynamics of deepwater offshore structures
  • pipeline and subsea systems
  • structural analysis of offshore structures
  • dynamics of mooring and marine riser systems

You will also benefit from participating in projects sponsored directly by industry partners whenever they are available.

Delivery

Seven taught modules worth 100 credits are delivered through semester one and/or two. A dissertation research project, worth 80 credits, is undertaken across the three semesters.

Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: Upper Second Class

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to Upper Second Class on the UK Honour scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on the UK Honour scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

A 2:1 honours degree, or international equivalent, in:
  • civil engineering
  • mechanical engineering
  • naval architecture
  • offshore engineering
  • ocean engineering
  • marine engineering

We will also consider your application on an individual basis if you have lower or non-standard qualifications and relevant practical experience.

International Students

If your first language is not English you need an overall IELTS score of 6.5.
