Course summary

North East England is home to the UK’s fastest growing energy sector, with significant investment being made to increase the number of jobs to 27,000 by 2030. This practical Subsea and Offshore Engineering degree will enhance your advanced manufacturing skills so you are able to pursue a range of roles within the sector. Based at our Energy Academy, you will develop your knowledge of design, subsea equipment, hydraulics, electrics, mechanics and maintenance. Our partnership with Royal IHC gives you access to a £9m Hi-Traq machine used for sea bed cable installation, allowing you to understand the complexities of subsea engineering. Previous students have had the opportunity to work on a live project with multinational electric utility company Engie. The project looked at wind farm feasibility and included a research task and presentation to Engie’s senior management. You will also gain additional experience of working at height and sea survival with our partners Port Training Services (PTS). On successful completion you can progress onto a relevant (Top-Up) degree course with Newcastle College University Centre. Depending on your career path you can progress onto BSc (Hons) Engineering Management (Top-Up), the final year of BEng (Hons) Electrical Electronic Engineering, or BEng (Hons) Mechanical Manufacturing Engineering. You may also choose to enter the industry as a junior manager or junior design engineer.
