Title of the event: “ Introduction to Off Shore Structure and Career Opportunities”
The School of Civil Engineering, REVA University-Bangalore has organized a webinar on topic of Introduction to Off Shore Structure and Career Opportunities on 3rd July 2021 at 5.30pm to 6.30pm. This event had a motive to impart knowledge on the out of curriculum context domains of civil engineering.

The main take away of this webinar were key fundamentals aspects of Introduction to Off Shore Structure and Career Opportunities. There was overwhelming response for the webinar evident through 100 plus participants.
Students and faculty coordinators on behalf of School of Civil Engineering, Thank Honourable Chancellor Dr. P. Shyama Raju sir and Vice Chancellor Dr. M. Dhanamjaya sir.
We also extend our acknowledgement to our Director Dr. Y. Ramalinga Reddy sir, School of Civil Engineering and also our Vertical head Mr. Ajaybhaskar Reddy.
We also thank all the faculties of School of Civil Engineering, REVA University for their continuous support in organizing the events.
Outputs of Webinar:
ï¶ The primary mission of the off shore structure is to ensure are large-scale structures situated in the sea. They can accommodate the facilities and equipment to drill, extract, and process oil and natural gases.
ï¶ UG and PG student of civil engineer has got more opportunities in abroad and in India in Off structure. The Career opportunities for civil engineers in off shore oil and Gas industry first being the project management team has a project manager, Engineer manager, interface engineer, project control, contract management, quality control engineer, procurement engineer. followed by several other opportunities that includes technical/SME Team like off shore structural engineer, pipeline engineer, naval architects, marine warranty survey and certifications, construction and installation Engineers, off shore survey team: geophysical and geotechnical investigators
II. Off shore Applications:
ï¶ They are complex structures, which involves the process of oil and natural gas extraction in the sea bed.
ï¶ Offshore wind speeds tend to be faster than on land Small increases in wind speed yield large increases in energy production: a turbine in a 15-mph wind can generate twice as much energy as a turbine in a 12-mph wind. Faster wind speeds offshore mean much more energy can be generated.
ï¶ Offshore wind speeds tend to be steadier than on land. A steadier supply of wind means a more reliable source of energy.
ï¶ Many coastal areas have very high energy needs. Half of the United States’ population lives in coastal areas, with concentrations in major coastal cities. Building offshore wind farms in these areas can help to meet those energy needs from nearby sources.
ï¶ Offshore wind farms have many of the same advantages as land-based wind farms – they provide renewable energy; they do not consume water; they provide a domestic energy source; they create jobs; and they do not emit environmental pollutants or greenhouse gases
