The Master of Science (Offshore Technology) is jointly hosted by the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering and the Department of Mechanical Engineering, and is administered by the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering.  It offers a comprehensive coverage of topics in Offshore Technology and Subsea Engineering that are of great relevance to the offshore oil and gas industry which span the design of facilities in shallow waters to challenges that are faced by engineers in developments in deep waters and in arctic conditions.

A student may choose to graduate with ONLY one of the following:

  • MSc (Offshore Technology)
  • MSc (Offshore Technology) with specialisation in Subsea Engineering

MSc (Offshore Technology)

Students reading the programme without specialisation must successfully complete the programme with at least 40 MCs and achieve a minimum CAP of 3.00, which consist of the following:

  1. At least 28 MCs (7 modules) from the modules listed in part (i); and
  2. The remaining up to 12 MCs (3 modules) from the modules listed in part (ii). However, subject to prior approval from the Department’s Programme Management Committee, up to two (2) modules may be taken from outside the prescribed programme curriculum.

MSc (Offshore Technology) with Specialisation in Subsea Engineering

To be eligible for the specialisation, students must successfully complete the programme with at least 40 MCs and achieve a minimum CAP of 3.00, which consist of the following:

  1. At least 20 MCs (5 modules) from the modules listed in part (iii); and
  2. At least 8 MCs (2 modules) from the modules listed in part (i); and
  3. The remaining up to 12 MCs (3 modules) from the modules listed in part (ii). However, subject to prior approval from the Department’s Programme Management Committee, up to two (2) modules may be taken from outside the prescribed programme curriculum.

MSc (Offshore Technology) students are not allowed to do any module which they have previously taken and counted towards a different degree programme without prior permission from the Head of Department.
