Subsea engineering and operations embraces all aspects of engineering and related operations in the development of the Underwater and Marine Energy industry below the surface of the sea. The aim of the Committee is to establish subsea engineering and life cycle operations as a recognised discipline of engineering across this Energy Transition and to examine the needs for education, training and standards across its future and the wider Blue Economy.


Subsea Engineering and Operations is of relevance to a multitude of offshore applications and developments including offshore renewable & hydrocarbon energy resource exploitation, food resources, extraction of seafloor minerals, emplacement submarine cables & pipelines and other sub-sea structures, ports & harbours development, carbon capture transmission and storage, etc. Members are to include subsea/underwater engineers, technologists, scientists as well as those in the associated, ancillary fields or supporting fields to subsea engineering and operations.


To share new developments, operational experience and concepts with the wider SUT membership and the rest of the underwater science & technology community via training, publications, seminars, workshops and conferences.
To encourage research, development & utilization of new techniques, technologies and solutions.
To encourage university research into subsea engineering and operations in the context of resource extraction and use of the marine environment.
To identify gaps in capability and explore solutions.
To educate, review and inform the user community about emerging capabilities.
To contribute to the UN decade of Ocean Science for sustainable development 2021-30 by facilitating knowledge exchange and capacity development.
To liaise with any similar committees within the SUT and sister Learned Societies to share knowledge and best practice. To help with training, mentoring and encouragement of early career marine professionals and those without formal environmental qualifications/experience.

The SUT-US offers training including a Subsea Awareness Course. Find out more here.
