Aberdeen-based Robert Gordon University has teamed up with The Underwater Centre, to incorporate a commercial diving familiarisation course as part of its MSc Subsea Engineering and MSc Offshore Oil and Gas Engineering courses.
The Centre provides theoretical sessions covering diving physics, diving physiology, gases and diving systems, diving regulations and ROV intervention using the 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 recently to complete the week-long course.
The students also toured the Centre’s Recompression Chamber facility and ROV training spread. This practical exposure reinforced the theoretical training making it a unique learning experience for RGU’s students.
