Offshore and Marine

With significant investment in our infrastructure, a thriving deep sea port that is lock-free and operates 365-days a year, along with our close proximity to Dogger Bank, Newcastle is a major centre for the renewable, offshore and subsea energy industries and is one of six Centres for Offshore Renewable Engineering (CORE) in England.

The region is home to the world’s most advanced steel tube facility, Newcastle University’s £7m engineering research facility, the Tyne Subsea – the National Centre for Subsea and Offshore Engineering, the first of its kind in the UK, and the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult, the UK’s flagship technology innovation and research centre for offshore wind, wave and tidal energy.

Newcastle College’s Energy Academy provides training and development for the energy sector and AIS Training offers over 175 relevant courses for the industry, whilst Newcastle University has the 3rd largest Maritime Technology course in the UK and is one of only two universities to offer an Offshore Engineering degree.
