HOUSTON – The University of Houston has received the state’s approval to offer the nation’s first subsea engineering graduate program.

The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board recently approved UH’s proposal to provide a graduate subsea engineering program, which is expected to begin in fall 2013. UH currently has a subsea engineering certification program.

Formed in partnership with the world’s leading energy engineering companies, the master’s program will include classroom lectures and hands-on software education for subsea systems design. Courses will be taught by recognized experts in the industry.

UH’s graduate program will include lectures on basic engineering sciences and best of engineering practices in subsea engineering. There will be a major design project assigned and each course also will require a written project report, a technical presentation, and the use of state-of-the-art subsea engineering software.

Cameron, FMC Technologies, and GE Oil & Gas have played a role in the university’s subsea programs.
