The offshore environment can be extremely hostile, placing heavy demands on both fixed and floating structures. It is crucial that the behaviour of the materials from which they are built is fully understood.

A very large number of structures associated with oil-gas already exist and in the future there are likely to be many more associated with renewable sources of energy. The Offshore Materials Engineering course focuses on understanding the influences on the choice and use of materials offshore and how different materials can be selected to help overcome some of the problems.

Students benefit from access to a range of facilities including our state of-the-art corrosion laboratories to support investigations of materials used offshore.

The Offshore Materials Engineering course comprises eight one-week assessed modules, a group project, and an individual thesis project.

Students complete six core modules with a further two optional modules selected from the list below in consultation with the Course Director. These provide the ‘tools’ required for the group and individual projects.

The The Offshore Materials Engineering course commences every year in October.
