The school is committed to excellence, self-reliance and professionalism in its operations.
To be the foremost centre of excellence for training and developing high-quality skilled Engineering and Technology Personnel equipped with the most current tools for the petroleum and gas industry in the offshore environment in the Africa sub-region
To establish competency and capacity building centre in Engineering and sustainable energy studies in the offshore environment.
To provide non-engineering graduates who wish to undertake a masters programme in engineering the pre-requisites needed to undertake such studies. The programme also avails the low-grade engineering graduates the opportunity to boost their academic standing so as to take up a masters programme in engineering.
5. Aim and Objectives
The aim of the PGD Programme in the Offshore Technology Institute is to equip graduates whose CGPA and degree fall short of the requirements to be admitted into a master’s programmes at the Offshore Technology Institute before enrolling for a masters programme.
To achieve this, the following will be actualized:
i. Undertake four (4) months of classroom learning on – basic engineering courses; computational skills; introduction to offshore, subsea and pipeline engineering; and management and entrepreneurial skills.
ii. Undertake a six (6) months internship
iii. Carry out a project based on the skills that have been achieved
6. Admission Requirements
Candidates for the PGD in Offshore Engineering Technology must possess a Bachelors degree from a reputable university with a minimum of third class honours for graduates of engineering, or a minimum of second class lower from any other physical science fields such as Physics, Chemistry, Geology, Computer Science, etc.
All prospective candidates must go through the admission process of screening and selection (Aptitude Test / Oral Interview).
7. Programme Duration
The Post Graduate Diploma (PGD) is a one (1) year programme that comprises four (4) months of classroom learning, six (6) months of internship and two (2) months of student project writing and defence.
