Subsea Systems

Course Description

Subsea systems are subjected to harsh environmental conditions which make their construction and design challenging. The course initially provides a comprehensive review of geological and geotechnical characterization of the seafloor. Subsequently, the course focuses on the installation and design of subsea systems according to the international standards. Finally the course introduces basic seismic design requirements.


Who Should Attend

Design and contract engineers who are involved in offshore projects and have relevant experiences. Project engineers, Logistics managers, Finance controllers, safety officers and management persons of offshore companies will also benefitting from attending the course.



Basic knowledge of geotechnical engineering, offshore construction and design experiences.
