If you enjoy travelling and working in a field environment that couldn't be further from a desk job, and if you are a problem solver with a passion for building things- systems or structures- offshore engineering could be the job for you.
Working with systems directly dealing with exploration and production of commodities like oil and gas, you would be ready to jump in and help out whenever and wherever required. You would be expected to come up with robust and economically viable solutions for the offshore industry with a lot of financial, human and technical resources at stake.

2. Have very strong analytical skills and an eye for detail
3. Are a team player and quick learner
4. Have excellent communication skills and are able to adapt to different people/ disciplines and locations.
