Ocean engineers are involved in the design of some of the largest, most complex, and most expensive structures produced by humankind. These include offshore structures such as oil and gas platforms or subsea pipelines, as well as the wide range of infrastructure associated with the ports and harbour facilities and submersible vehicles required to service them.
