FORT WILLIAM, UK – Subsea training and trials facility The Underwater Centre is working with Robert Gordon University (RGU)’s School of Engineering to incorporate a commercial diving familiarization course as part of the recently introduced MSc in Subsea Engineering one year full-time course.
The Centre will deliver theoretical sessions covering diving physics, diving physiology, gases and diving systems, and diving regulations, using the extensive facilities and subsea equipment available in Fort William.
The first intake of students visited the Centre last month to complete the week-long course, Humans in the Ocean.
The Masters in Subsea Engineering is aimed at engineers who already have some relevant offshore oil and gas experience and graduates who wish to enhance their employability in the subsea industry.
A broad range of topics are covered, including well engineering and topsides processing facilities, as well as the core areas of subsea engineering including: subsea systems, subsea control, pipelines and risers, corrosion, and subsea reliability.
Steve Ham, commercial director of The Underwater Centre, added: “We are really pleased to be working with RGU to help their MSc in Subsea Engineering students gain a greater understanding of the challenges involved in working subsea.
“We are keen to increase the links between university education and the more practical training we deliver and we look forward to developing the assistance we can offer RGU across both diving and ROV disciplines.”
