Introduction to Subsea Engineering
Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen (RGU), in conjunction with Subsea UK, has developed an online programme of four modules to support the induction of engineers from other industries and new graduates into the Subsea sector.
The UK Subsea sector is set for explosive growth. This modular online course aims to provide an introduction to the oil and gas industry and an overview of Subsea as an industry.
The current lack of engineering talent in the employment market has led to the oil and gas industry trying to attract new recruits from other disciplines, while also retaining and developing existing staff.
Initiatives with Higher Education partners are providing part of the solution.
This online course has been designed to support Subsea employers in their recruitment drive by supplementing their training programmes.
The four modules are delivered online, via the University's Virtual Learning Environment, CampusMoodle. Access to the programme is for 8 weeks duration, with the recommendation that students allow between 40 and 60 hours learning time over the programme.
Throughout the course there are a number of self-assessments to allow students to gauge their progress.
A chat room and forum, where participants are encouraged to discuss the programme content with each other, are also available.
