Ranking and student feedback
Subsea engineering plays a vital role in the exploitation of oil and gas resources. The subsea engineering industry help to specify the curriculum so we meet their requirements. The course is designed for you as an experienced or recently graduated engineer who wants to develop your subsea knowledge.
Your teaching modules operate in short 'intensive schools' with time after the module to complete the assignments, where applicable. They include:
•input from industry experts
•teaching from other disciplines.
Teaching consists of lectures, practical sessions, seminars and personal supervision covering a variety of topics in subsea engineering. The degree is taught using a mix of the academic staff from the School of Marine Science and Technology as well as visiting lecturers and experts from industry.
You will undertake a research project leading to a dissertation. This may be a critical review and/or computational or experimental project using the University's world leading testing facilities. The research project is supported by an academic supervisor and may be conducted with an industrial partner which, where appropriate, may be your employer.
Ten taught modules worth 120 credits are delivered in blocks through semester one and/or two. A dissertation or research project, worth 60 credits, is undertaken across the three semesters. To get an idea of how the course is taught in blocks, view the subsea-timetable-1415 (PDF: 19KB) from the 2014-2015 academic year.
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
•the Henri Kummerman Marine Resource Centre.
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.
