This degree gives students the opportunity to specialise their Civil Engineering degree and develop key skills specifically for global Subsea Technology. The Subsea Industry is an industry that has strong roots here in Aberdeen, a city recognised globally as a centre of subsea excellence, testing and performance. This Honours degree programme follows a similar structure to the straight MEng Civil Engineering degree. The major difference is the wider range of course options in the 5th year of study, aimed specifically at enhancing skills and knowledge for the global subsea industry. Such choices include; Remediation Technology, Numerical Simulation of Waves, Computational Fluid Dynamics and Engineering Risk and Reliability Analysis. Aberdeen is a global hub for subsea development, technology and testing and the industry in Scotland exports innovative solutions and talented workforces to all corners of the globe. Subsea technologies will continue to develop in order to meet the changing needs of the industry and this will continue to open up career opportunities for talented individuals.
