Offshore environment: the building blocks and project life cycle of offshore infrastructure projects

This micro-credential provides engineering professionals with skills and training in the offshore energy sector. You will gain an understanding of the seabed and metocean offshore environment and the project cycle from assessment to commissioning, drawing from recent research performed in close collaboration with oil and gas industry.

You will also learn how to interpret site investigation data, apply the principles of offshore geotechnical engineering design methods for a variety of offshore foundation types and perform engineering calculations.

Upon successful completion, you'll receive:

  • Two PD Points - stackable for unspecified academic credit in award courses
  • A Certificate of Achievement
  • A UWA Plus Professional Development Transcript, listing all successfully completed micro-credentials
