Module overview

Offshore infrastructure forms a key part of our global communication, energy generation, material transport and environment monitoring networks. This module examines the general engineering concepts and analytical techniques that are fundamental to design, operate and decommission offshore fixed, floating and seabed infrastructure in a safe, sustainable way. This includes learning about the different types of sites, platforms, and monitoring/decommissioning requirements. The module introduces analytic and numeric methods for predicting the wind, wave and current loads on offshore structures and the engineering design of different systems to ensure their safety and performance under these expected loads. The module suits a range of career pathways linked to our marine, maritime and offshore energy industries.
