MSc Offshore and Ocean Technology: Offshore Materials Engineering
The Offshore and Ocean Technology with Offshore Materials Engineering MSc course develops professional engineers with specialist knowledge of the selection, behaviour and maintenance of a wide variety of complex materials used offshore. This knowledge is crucial to the success of the industry, particularly with the growth in novel materials for the renewable energy sector. Our graduates can expect to be in demand globally as specialist structural and materials engineers, in oil and gas, and renewable energy applications

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.

Group project

The group project is an applied multidisciplinary, team-based activity. It provides students with the opportunity to take responsibility for a consultancy-type project while working under academic supervision. Success is dependent on the integration of various activities and working within agreed objectives, deadlines and budgets.

Individual project

Students select the individual project in consultation with the Course Director. The individual project provides students with the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to carry out independent research, think and work in an original way, contribute to knowledge, and overcome genuine problems in the offshore industry. Many of the projects are supported by external organisations.
