FMC Technologies Helps Develop Subsea Engineers in Nigeria

FMC Technologies, together with the Offshore Technology Institute at the University of Port Harcourt (OTI-UNIPORT), has officially launched the first ever subsea engineering degree programme offered in Nigeria.

The Master of Science degree in Subsea Engineering was developed by OTI – UNIPORT in collaboration with FMC Technologies and other industry leaders and prepares students for a career in the oil and gas industry. Graduate courses will be delivered over a 12-month period from UNIPORT’S campus in Port Harcourt.

“We are committed to developing our Nigerian workforce and our collaboration with OTI-UNIPORT is one we are passionate about,” said Michael Hunt, FMC Technologies Nigerian Country Manager. “Developing the next generation of subsea engineers within Nigeria will play a key role in the country’s future within the oil and gas industry.”

Professor John U. Okoli, Director of OTI-UNIPORT, said: “This is a major milestone, not only for the university but also for the Nigerian oil and gas industry. We are delighted to officially celebrate the launch of this program and look forward to watching our students develop over the years.”

Senior management from FMC Technologies attended the launch event at OTI-UNIPORTS’s campus in Port Harcourt, alongside Deans, Directors and Heads of Departments. Also present were the 16 students who have been through a selection admission process. Upon graduation, participants will have expanded opportunities to work in the energy industry, including potential employment with FMC Technologies in Nigeria.
