Subsea 7 Seeks Engineers - From Any Sector

subsea talent pool as it looks to grow its engineering team. The company said it is offering experienced engineers from all sectors the opportunity to forge a new career in the subsea industry.Since 2005, the company’s Engineering Conversion Program has enabled more than 70  engineers from aerospace to automotive, and onshore construction to ex-military, to transfer their skills into oil and gas.The intensive program, which begins later in 2019, delivers a mix of on the job and classroom based training as well as external activities such as visits to Subsea 7 sites, vessels and subcontractors

was Marty Klein, who was instrumental in bringing side scan sonar technology to commercial market. “There was a lot of excitement about the oceans,” he says. “Cities under the sea were going to feed the world. People were building manned submersibles to go exploring in the deep. Aerospace companies were building submersibles, like Lockheed, North American, Rockwell and Westinghouse.”A lot had happened in the years before, recalls Kevin Hardy, who worked at Scripps Institution of Oceanography from 1972 to 2012, from the invention of pingers and even o-rings – a small

“We are moving autonomous technologies into vehicles that have always been "remotely operated" or even manned to realize more efficiency and capability.  We are really blurring the lines between "ROV" and "AUV" and minimizing the technical difference between manned and unmanned. ”
