The nation’s first graduate Subsea Engineering program offers an engineering science-based curriculum providing the scientific and technical skills necessary to create the first generation of trained subsea engineering specialists.
The courses listed below have been specifically developed for the Subsea Engineering Graduate Program. Every student must take at least three of the courses from this prescribed elective list. Additional subsea engineering courses are currently being developed and will be added to this list. Students may submit a graduate petition if deviations from this requirement makes sense for individual career paths.
Of the 10 mandatory courses required for the MS in Subsea Engineering, Categories 1 and 2 have prescribed at least 6 courses. This leaves a maximum of 4 courses that can be selected by the student, subject to approval by the Director. Subsea engineering is an interdisciplinary engineering field, so students are strongly encouraged to take at least one course from another department or program within the Cullen College of Engineering. Mechanical Engineering graduate courses applicable to the MS in Subsea Engineering include:
