Robert Gordon University (RGU) is collaborating with industry partner The Underwater Centre to help its engineering students get a better understanding of the oil and gas industry.

The two institutions are working together to incorporate a commercial diving familiarization course as part of RGU’s MSc Subsea Engineering and MSc Offshore Oil and Gas Engineering courses. The Centre offers theoretical sessions covering diving physics, diving physiology, gases and diving systems, diving regulations and ROV intervention using extensive facilities and subsea equipment.

The latest students to benefit from this industry collaboration, Felix Daboner and Joseph Adele, visited the Centre in Fort William last month to complete a week-long course titled, ‘The Oceans, Operability and Humans In The Ocean’.

Daboner, who is undertaking one of the MSc Oil and Gas Engineering courses, described the visit as hugely beneficial.

“It allowed us to see and experience everything involved in commercial diving. The facilities and equipment they have at the Centre are all exactly like you would find offshore so it was great to be able to get a bit of hands on experience,” Daboner said in a university statement.

Rob Collins, logistics & training co-ordinator at RGU’s School of Engineering, said the university was delighted to be working with The Underwater Centre to help bring the world of subsea engineering alive for its MSc students.

“The feedback that we have had from students attending the Centre has been really positive and it is great for them to be able to experience the practical side of what we are teaching on the course,” he said.
