This course teaches you the essential skills required to become a practicing pipeline engineer. The oil and gas industry help to specify the curriculum so we meet their requirements in high-pressure offshore and onshore pipelines.
You will gain:
- an understanding of the key steps in a pipeline’s lifecycle: design, construction, installation, asset management, maintenance and dismantling
- experience from specialists in pipeline operation
- the ability to develop a thesis through selection of appropriate experimental, computer simulation or data analysis procedures
- skills in identifying, designing and applying laboratory tests to solve pipeline engineering problems
- knowledge in applying appropriate mathematical models in the simulation of pipeline engineering problems
Teaching consists of lectures, practical sessions, seminars and personal supervision covering a variety of topics in pipeline engineering. The degree is taught using a mix of academic staff from the School of Engineering as well as visiting lecturers and experts from industry.
You will choose an individual dissertation project. This may be a critical review and/or computational or experimental project using our world leading testing facilities. You also benefit from participating in projects sponsored directly by industry partners whenever they are available.
