PROGRAMME 
OVERVIEW

Newcastle University

Bachelor of Engineering with Honours
in Offshore Engineering

Offshore Engineering involves the design, construction and installation of structures and facilities in a marine environment, typically for the production and transfer of electricity, oil, gas and other resources.

This degree programme is geared to the demands of the offshore engineering industry with a solid basis in engineering fundamentals. Students will learn to design and produce fixed and floating offshore oil and gas production installations, along with the crafts that service these and other offshore developments. The programme also aims to instil in students the skills and techniques appropriate for companies in various sectors of the marine and offshore fields.

Offshore Engineers excel in various sectors of the marine and offshore industries including ocean mining, offshore disposal, offshore pipelines and cables, offshore structures and salvage operations. They would also have the skills to work in other sectors such as thermal energy conversion and seabed mineral recovery.
