Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering - Máster en Ingeniería Mecánica
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 provide graduate entry for legal registration purposes, and supports the needs of the existing workforce through a series of advanced units in offshore processing, geomechanics and hydrodynamics.
This course has been designed to meet the requirements of Engineers Australia for registration as a chartered subsea engineer.
Australian & NZ students:
You must have an honours degree or equivalent in a relevant engineering discipline. Applicants with other qualifications and experience will only be admitted with the consent of the appropriate senior academic.
In your second year, you will receive the Master of Subsea Engineering award provided you pass all units, and/or a project.
Minimum English language entry requirements:
IELTS ACADEMIC (INTERNATIONAL ENGLISH LANGUAGE TESTING SYSTEM)
Certificate in Advanced English (CAE): Grade C
