ROV working on subsea equipment under a protection structure.

The Master of Science in interdisciplinary engineering with a focus on subsea engineering is designed to provide the scientific and technical skills that are necessary for designing, building, installing and operating subsea equipment. This specialized equipment must operate in an extreme underwater marine environment to safely produce oil and gas, and is commonly installed using some of the largest offshore installation equipment in the world.

Students in this program study the fundamentals and installation of subsea hardware, subsea controls and umbilical systems, subsea riser systems, flowlines and pipelines. This degree is flexible, allowing students to tailor their course selections to their interests.

The guiding premise of this degree program is to provide practical knowledge of the subsea engineering discipline from instructors who are teaching from experience. The courses are taught by industry professionals who became successful in the oil and gas industry prior to becoming professors of practice.
This program is offered on campus and online.

The College also offers a Master of Engineering in engineering with a focus on subsea engineering, which is a non-thesis option. The Master of Science option requires a thesis and defense. Learn more about this Master of Engineering option.
