Last modified: 24 Jun 2020 14:31


Course Overview

The dissertation is an independent piece of work on an offshore engineering topic. The students are encouraged to focus their dissertation on a problem confronting the offshore industry, and demonstrate how the design, operational fundamentals and skills they have learned during the taught programme can be put into practice to provide solutions towards addressing the problem. The dissertation should contain a degree of original work and demonstrate in-depth knowledge and application of concepts acquired throughout the MSc programme.
