Ocean Engineering deals with the technical aspects of fixed and floating marine structures and systems related to harnessing ocean resources. These include offshore oil and gas and the rapidly-expanding area of ocean renewable energy, as well as other ocean resource activities such as sub-sea mining and aquaculture.
Along with the common core you will study a range of specialised Ocean Engineering subjects. You also choose some subjects related to the design of novel ship and offshore structures, such as station-keeping and control, and lightweight structures.
Graduates are equipped to deal with engineering challenges on a wide range of fixed and floating marine vehicles.
