Ranking and student feedback
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 Marine Science and Technology 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.
The MSc course comprises 11 taught modules worth 120 credits. Fundamentals of Pipeline Engineering is delivered in a block at the beginning of semester one and the remaining modules are then taught across semester one and/or two. A dissertation or research project, worth 60 credits, is undertaken across the three semesters.
The course is also available with a preliminary year which is designed for students who have a qualification from a technical college rather than an honours degree. Typically, you select one core module, and also take optional modules and complete a project and report.
Many of our modules are available as stand alone modules via Continual Professional Development . Please e-mail us at email@example.com for further information.
Our course is accredited by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) on behalf of the Engineering Council. This means that you are automatically recognised as satisfying the educational requirements leading to Chartered Engineer (CEng) status.
The Royal Institution of Naval Architects is an internationally renowned professional institution whose members are involved at all levels in the design, construction, maintenance and operation of marine vessels and structures. Members of RINA are widely represented in industry, universities and colleges, and maritime organisations in over 90 countries.
IMarEST is the first Institute to bring together marine engineers, scientists and technologists into one international multi-disciplinary professional body.
Our accreditations give you an additional benchmark of quality to your degree, making you more attractive to graduate employers. It can also open the door to higher-level jobs, most of which require Chartered Engineer status.
You have access to dedicated facilities including:
•a student common room
•a computer laboratory.
You also have access to a set of excellent testing facilities:
•Newcastle Towing Tank
•Wind, Wave and Current (WWC) Tank
•Emmerson Cavitation Tunnel
•Research Vessel The Princess Royal.

About this university
Newcastle attracts students from over 120 countries worldwide and there is plenty of help and advice on hand to assist them in adapting to life in the UK. The university has a system where every student has a personal tutor to assist them in both academic and non-academic matters and there is also a Student Wellbeing Service for confidence advice and help. There is a Visa and Immigration Team on hand to deal with legal matters relating to these areas and a Student Advice Centre within the Studentâ€™s Union for information on matters such as housing and finances. Finally, towards the end of studying, there is a Careers Service to help students find work or further their education as required. The heart of student life outside the classroom in the university is the Newcastle University Students Union. Unlike many students unions, NUSU owns the building that it operates from, following an anonymous gift in 1924 that allowed them to build a neo-Jacobean style building. It is run by six sabbatical officers and employs some 300 people in roles such as bar staff and entertainment organisers. In the media, there is a student run newspaper, established in 1948, called The Courier as well as radio station. The university is one of the leading in the UK for its sports programs and there are more than 50 sports clubs to become involved with.
