RSU OPENS MASTER OF TECHNOLOGY (M.Tech) PROGRAMME in Marine and Offshore Engineering for the 2022/2023 CYCLE PORTAL

INTRODUCTION

 

The academic programmes at the Centre of Excellence are designed to develop highly skilled Postgraduate level Engineers in all key areas of Marine and Offshore Engineering; and in particular, for applications in the Offshore Oil and Gas Industry. The Centre was set up by Shell Petroleum Development Company and its Joint Venture Partners as a new initiative in its University Assistance Programme, to strengthen the intervention strategies from ‘within’ the University environment for academic excellence in the area of Marine and Offshore Engineering. The curriculum provides well planned content for preparation of graduates for tasks that range from research and development, design, construction/installation, to operation and maintenance of equipment and facilities. All the programmes conform to the specified standards and satisfy the requirements of the NUC Benchmark for Minimum Academic Standards (BMAS). At completion of the programme, graduates of the Centre would acquire the requisite intellectual and professional skills to make them fully functional and ready for opportunities in the Maritime, Oil and Gas Industry, as well as in Universities and Research Centres. A successful completion of the academic programme will lead to the award of the Rivers State University’s Master of Technology (M.Tech) degree in Marine and Offshore Engineering with Specialization in Marine Engineering (Power plants), Naval Architecture, or Offshore and Subsea Engineering. Every graduate of the Centre will also be awarded the Certificate of the Centre named “Diploma of the Centre of Excellence (DCoE)”.
