Mar. 17 - Mar. 28, 2003


Developed specifically for engineers, scientists, and technologists, this course offering will review the fundamentals behind all types of offshore structures (fixed or floating) and, in the case of fixed platforms, will cover applications of these principles. The overall objective is to provide participants with an understanding of the design and construction of offshore platforms, specifically (1) the theory and process of such design and (2) the use of current, applicable engineering methods in the design of fixed offshore platforms. In addition to the traditional lecture delivery, the course delivery emphasizing the uses of group discussions and actual design problems in order to ensure students can put the newly learned concepts to use.
The University of Texas at Austin''s Offshore Short Course Series is sponsored by the Offshore Technology Research Center, The University of Texas at Austin, and Texas A&M University
