The Master of Science in interdisciplinary engineering with a focus in subsea engineering is offered as an online degree, as well as in-person. Both programs provide the same instruction and quality. Our online program was designed for those who cannot attend on-campus classes and is ideal for students who are in the midst of their working career. This degree will add depth to your understanding of subsea engineering and enhance your credentials for your work in the future.

About the degree:
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 also offered on campus.
