The University of Houston’s Cullen College of Engineering Subsea Engineering Society continues to gain recognition, this time as the focus of an article by Rigzone – “UH Dives Deep to Advance Subsea Engineering.”

The Subsea Engineering Society, created by UH graduate students Nebolisa Egbunike, Ewaen Ogiefo and Ademola Oladinni, is the first of its kind. Fitting, as UH’s subsea engineering master’s program is also the first and only subsea graduate program in the United States.

Subsea exploration is an up-and-coming field in the exploration and production industry, and Egbunike explained to Rigzone that as shale play production peaks in the next several years, subsea production has the potential to grow.
