Course content

This course teaches you the essential skills required to become a practicing pipeline engineer. The oil and gas industry help to specify the curriculum so we meet their requirements in high-pressure offshore and onshore pipelines.
You will gain:
  • an understanding of the key steps in a pipeline's lifecycle: design, construction, installation, asset management, maintenance and dismantling
  • experience from specialists in pipeline operation
  • the ability to develop a thesis through selection of appropriate experimental, computer simulation or data analysis procedures
  • skills in identifying, designing and applying laboratory tests to solve pipeline engineering problems
  • knowledge in applying appropriate mathematical models in the simulation of pipeline engineering problems

Teaching consists of lectures, practical sessions, seminars and personal supervision covering a variety of topics in pipeline engineering. The degree is taught using a mix of academic staff from the School of Marine Science and Technology as well as visiting lecturers and experts from industry.
