The UK's first, possibly the world's first Masters degree in decommissioning oil rigs, platforms and offshore structures.

The degree will focus on the key aspects associated with decommissioning such as engineering, project management, business, law and health, and safety and environment.

This degree is now open for applications. Please email if you have any questions.

This multi-discipline degree is designed to cover all the key aspects of the decommissioning process, including the engineering challenges, legal and environmental considerations and policies, economic, business and project management related challenges.

The degree is taught through a number of core and optional courses and students will have the chance to develop and further research a specific area of interest to them through their MSc final project dissertation.

It is envisaged that the degree will open up career opportunities in specific areas, such as law, engineering, project management, business consultancy, economics, financial management etc. It is aimed at recent graduates from a range of degree backgrounds but also very much aimed at those already working across the oil and gas industry.
