Event Feedback

Evening Technical Meetings

‘’As a subsea engineer with over 20 years experience I continue to be amazed at how much I have yet to learn about the technologies and engineering innovations taking place across the breadth of disciplines and organisations which work in this field. I try and come along to every ETM I can, no matter what the subject, since it is very rare that I don’t learn something new. And as always, the SUT ETM’s provide an invaluable opportunity for networking which is more important now than ever before in my career’’

Terry Griffiths, Subsea and Pipeline Engineering Consultant



Annual Dinner

“ Perth’s SUT annual dinner remains the premier subsea networking event of the year, with a great blend of new and known faces, good food, fine wine and plenty of good humour ”

May 2022 Course Testimonials:

“Extremely well organised course. Great engagement of the organisers from the get-go with organisation of the networking night and everything from getting across information, to PPE and bus organisation.”

“Great engagement from the tutors, and great catering.”

“The course has been worth it, and I would recommend to anyone starting out or wanting to know more in subsea. I would love to come back for another course. It’s given me a base knowledge and awareness as a graduate that I can work on from here.”

“Breaks were perfect – perfect amount and the length of them was also great.”

“It was also good that we got to keep the slides as I’m going to refer to them a lot, I think.”

“Photos were also nice to keep for our records.”

“Really well organised by Jade and her colleagues. Ran to schedule well and was well catered for. Speakers all good choices with lots of knowledge.”

“Very happy with the course, good level of information and structure. Field trip especially useful, highly recommended course.”

“I think the course covers all the main components involved in subsea developments. Very thorough and in-depth presentations were given throughout.”


May 2022: Site Visit 1 – Oceaneering

“Favourite part of course! Kept everyone interested and we got to interact with the equipment. Enjoyed ‘driving’ an ROV, seeing the emergency kits and the general yard.”


May 2022: Site Visit 2 – AMC

“Enjoyed some of the candid information that was presented, e.g., the luxury boats that were built here. Also enjoyed the presentation/video especially the project examples.”
