Course content

With the world-wide search for offshore oil and gas moving into increasingly hostile areas of ocean and deep and ultra-deep water, floating systems are becoming more widely used. Floating systems must be designed and built to withstand harsh environments with innovative methods and techniques being adopted to develop robust as well as economically efficient and safe structures. In meeting these challenges, concern for the environment is of increasing importance. This programme is designed for graduate engineers in naval architecture, offshore engineering, mechanical engineering and other related disciplines who wish to pursue a career in offshore engineering. It provides students with practical knowledge of offshore floating systems, their conceptions, design and installation, with a sound basis of mathematical and engineering fundamentals.
