Overview

The Offshore Engineering Society (OES) is excited to announce their upcoming graduate and student networking event, aimed at those who aren't already working in the offshore engineering industry.

The event will comprise five insightful presentations by leading members in the industry. There will be an informal session where delegates will be able to discuss particular aspects of the industry with the presenters and other industry experts. This will be followed by networking drinks, providing further connections in a casual setting.

The formal presentations are:

  • Structural Engineering – Jennifer Leggett, senior structural engineer, Ramboll UK
  • Geotechnical Engineering – Hansini Mallikarachchi, geotechnical engineer, Gavin & Doherty Geosolutions (GDG)
  • Naval Architecture – Liam Moore, senior engineer, 2H Offshore Engineering
  • Pipelines – Ed Safier, principal structural engineer and ceo, SAFIER INGENIERIE SAS
  • Decommissioning – Alistair Gilmour, decommissioning project manager, Petrofac

The world of offshore engineering is an exciting place to work where some of the greatest engineering feats are carried out to meet major challenges. However, awareness of these developments is limited because they are often far over the horizon and not readily visible.

The offshore industry continues to explore new frontiers, from sustainable energy sources like offshore wind, wave, and current potential to traditional energy sources. In both the renewable energy and the hydrocarbon theatres the drive to break through the barriers continues apace.

Industry experts play pivotal roles and contribute significantly to these fields, and there are opportunities to gain a wide range of skills in offshore engineering. To raise awareness of the opportunities for engineering graduates and soon-to-be graduates, the OES is holding an evening event that provides a broad overview of what is available.
