By:

The University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering has officially launched a Subsea Engineering Certificate Program, the first and only formal subsea curriculum in the United States.

The program was established in response to requests from several companies in the petroleum sector. These firms indicated the need for engineers with the specialized skills to design and maintain the equipment and infrastructure used in underwater offshore drilling.

In fact, nearly all the students enrolled in the first course on flow assurance came to the program through three companies working with the college on its subsea engineering efforts: Cameron, FMC Technologies and GE Oil and Gas.

This is just the latest program the Cullen College has established in support of the area’s energy sector. The college recently established an undergraduate degree program in petroleum engineering, matching the graduate program it already offered in that field.
