Offshore Engineering SpecializationDepartment of Civil Engineering National University of Singapore Kent Ridge, Singapore 119260


The Offshore and Marine Industry has seen stellar growth in recent years. This industry is expected to continue growing in size over the coming years as it increases its market share [currently holding 60% of world market share in Floating Production Storage and Offloading (FPSO) conversion and 70% in jack-up rigs] in the design and fabrication of offshore rigs, semi-submersibles, other marine structures and oil-field equipment. Key players of this Industry (such as Keppel and SembCorp) and EDB have expressed to CORE the urgent need for a strong research and manpower training programme. In response, CORE will be launching an offshore engineering specialization, beginning in AY2004/2005. Offshore and Marine Industry


An EDB senior officer estimated that the Offshore and Marine Industry would need about 30-35 engineers per year, and this number is expected to increase in the coming years as the oil and gas industry grow further. Demand for Offshore and Marine EngineersSubsea Technology


Floating Oil Storage Facility Shirashima JapanObjective of Offshore Engineering SpecializationTo empower a selected group (about 20 students per batch) of CE graduates with key skills and knowledge in offshore structures, hydrodynamics, seafloor engineering, control and even chemical processes so that they can join the Offshore and Marine Industry.


CE tracks and specializations


Some Changes to CE curriculumInjection of some elements of offshore and marine engineering into a good number of existing CE modules so as to make students familiar with the offshore engineering discipline. For example, design a tutorial problem on undersea cables in EG1109 Statics and Mechanics of Materials give assignments on analysis and design of offshore structural components in Structural Analysis and Design, Finite Element Method, Plated Structures modules highlight construction materials that are suitable for use in offshore and coastal structures when teaching CE materials to students


CE students wishing to opt for this specialization must take CE4103 Design Project (on Offshore Structures) CE4104 B.Eng. Dissertation (on topics such as jack-up platforms, FPSOs, very large floating pontoon structures, semi-submersibles, seafloor engineering, and environmental impact ) CE5703 Analysis and Design of Offshore Structures CE5307 Offshore Hydrodynamics (new) – surface waves theory, wave forces on bodies, stability of offshore structures under various wave and flow conditions EG1602 Vacation Internship Programme with an offshore and marine engineering company/institute (12 weeks) Requirements of Offshore Engineering Specialization


and students are encouraged to read CN4243 Oil Field Processing (new) – separation processes, dehydration, sweetening, fractionation, effluent treatment CE5308 Coastal Engineering and Sediment Transport (new) – coastal wave dynamics, sediment transport, design of coastal structures ME3242 Industrial Automation Requirements of Offshore Engineering Specialization


CORE plans to mount more elective modules such as Fatigue and Fracture of Offshore Structures Offshore Dynamics and Marine Operations Also in a few years’ time, CORE intends to offer a Masters’ programme on offshore engineering for graduates who wish to build their careers in Offshore and Marine Engineering and for engineers in the Shipbuilding and Offshore Industry to upgrade their knowledge and research abilities.
