A Preliminary Year is also available.
Study Pipeline Engineering and you will gain:
an understanding of the key steps in a pipelines lifecycle: design, construction, installation, asset management, maintenance and dismantling, and the technical issues affecting them
invaluable experience from specialists in pipeline operating, construction, integrity and consulting, providing real issues, problems and solutions
the ability to propose, test and evaluate a thesis through selection of appropriate experimental, computer simulation or data analysis procedures
skills in identifying, designing and applying laboratory tests to solve pipeline engineering problems
knowledge in selecting and applying appropriate mathematical models in the simulation and analysis of pipeline engineering problems and data
On completion of the programme you will be regarded as competent to practise as a pipeline engineer by prospective employers.
At Newcastle University you be part of the School of Marine Science and Technology, which provides exceptional research-led teaching. Our modern laboratories enable a range of practical work, and are supplemented by local workshops for hands-on experience.
For the MSc you take compulsory modules, and a research project and dissertation.
For the PGDip and PGCert you undertake both compulsory modules and optional modules.
The programme is also available with a Preliminary Year, which is designed for students who have a qualification from a technical college rather than an Honours degree. Typically, you select one core module, and also take optional modules and complete a project and report.
