About this course
Subsea engineering is a highly technical, multidisciplinary profession that deals with safe, reliable and controlled upstream delivery of hydrocarbon resources, from subsea wells to surface process facilities or markets.
What you will learn
apply subsea engineering knowledge to field developments at a recognised international level; extend the boundaries through research to improve the safety, environmental and economic sustainability for offshore operations
critically analyse a subsea engineering problem and apply sound engineering principles to determine alternative solutions; utilise intellectual questioning independent and creative thinking to select optimal solutions
identify, research and inquire into discipline problems; source and evaluate data using appropriate technologies; synthesise and analyse data with a dispassionate perspective
communicate effectively in a variety of contexts; develop the capacity to use informed argument and reasoning and utilise a wide range of oral and written communication styles
implement, evaluate and adapt appropriate technologies for specific subsea contexts; oversee continual design and operational improvement of subsea systems
appreciate the need for, and develop, a lifelong learning skills strategy; be open to furthering personal development and self-reflection beyond graduation
recognise the global nature of the oil and gas industry and apply global standard practices and skills for acceptable engineering outcomes regardless of discipline or geographical location
exhibit awareness and appreciation of social and cultural diversity; identify cultural perspectives and practices affected by oil and gas developments and production operations
employ professional behaviours in all areas of engineering design as a practicing subsea engineer; participate independently or collaboratively adopting a leadership role when required, demonstrating ethical behaviour at all times
