Subsea Engineering 


Subsea engineering and operations embraces all aspects of engineering and related operations in the development of the subsea hydrocarbons industry below the surface of the sea. The aim of the Committee is to establish subsea engineering as a recognised discipline of engineering and to examine the needs for education, training and standards.


  • To provide a forum for the development of subsea engineering technology and to identify those areas where research effort is likely to prove most cost–effective.
  • To promote and encourage scientific research and development in subsea operations.
  • To provide a forum to discuss and encourage co–operation and co–ordination within all branches of subsea engineering and operations, and to liaise with engineering institutions.
  • To establish itself as a recognised authority for information on the present and future capabilities of subsea engineering and operations, and to disseminate this information.

This Panel provides the peer review process for admission onto the Register of SUT Accredited Subsea Engineers.
