About this program

The Western Australian offshore oil and gas industry is moving to deeper water.

The recent introduction of Floating LNG facilities (FLNG) offshore WA and the potential for future deep water, remote oil and gas production requires the development of new deep water technologies to bring these hydrocarbon reserves to shore.

This course has been designed to meet the need for engineers who possess the high level skill sets that the subsea industry requires.

It is tailored to support the needs of the existing workforce through a series of advanced units in offshore processing, geomechanics and hydrodynamics.

Please refer to the handbook for additional course overview information.

Program content

  • apply the knowledge of subsea engineering to design and install subsea facilities that optimise the transport of hydrocarbon from wellheads to shore facilities and can be operated in an economic, healthy, safe and environmentally acceptable manner for the lifetime of the field
  • analyse a subsea field requirement or problem in a logical, rational and critical way; identify alternative methods of solving the issue and select the optimum solution that provides the best outcomes for both industry and the community
  • obtain, evaluate and apply relevant data from a range of sources for a subsea development or operational problem
  • communicate effectively with a wide range of people from different discipline areas, professional positions and countries; able to communicate engineering findings in a variety of ways via written, verbal or electronic communications
  • evaluate and utilise appropriate technology for the implementation and extension of subsea developments and the continual operational improvement of installed subsea systems throughout their lifecycle
  • appreciate the need for, and develop, a lifelong learning skills strategy in relation to enhanced personal and company performance
  • recognise the global nature of the oil and gas industry and apply global standard practices and skills for acceptable engineering outcomes regardless of discipline or geographical location
  • demonstrate an awareness and understanding of cultural perspectives and practices affected by oil and gas production; able to work and apply discipline knowledge within an International exploration and production company
  • apply lessons learnt in a professional manner in all areas of engineering design, demonstrating leadership and ethical behaviour at all times
