Graduate Engineer, Subsea Engineering

In Subsea Engineering, we execute subsea projects from start to finish. This gives our engineers the possibility to follow a job from the early design phase to being part of the offshore installation team. The typical workflow will include development of concept design in front end and during tender, followed by System engineering, Product definition, detail design and analysis in project execution, through fabrication follow up and testing, mobilization and installation support. We plan all offshore activities and we go offshore to install the subsea field architecture. In addition, connect and test everything so it is ready for production. Unique to TechnipFMC is the opportunity to grow your career in both SPS and SURF within our combined iEPCI projects. This means that we both fabricate and install complex structures such as manifolds, templates, pipelines, flowlines and other subsea permanent modules and products. Will you share our vision as our new: Graduate Engineer?

Job Purpose:

You will be a Graduate Engineer based at our office in Lysaker. Here you will be a part of our Subsea Engineering department team. You will receive training and coaching by your Manager and a dedicated mentor. Training is executed through on-the-job training and development from participation in our breakthrough projects. Expect to be challenged with exciting work from the start.

Job Dimension:

Functionally reports to: Manager, Subsea Engineering Operationally reports to: Project Lead Engineers, Project Engineers Directly Supervises: N / A Internal key interactions: Subsea Engineering, Operations, EMS, Sourcing, Finance, Legal

Job Main Challenges:

Subsea Engineering is a fast-paced exciting environment. Expect to get your hands dirty. We expect your dedication, a mentality of willingness to learn and curiosity. You will dare to challenge and ask questions like; how can we work smarter and faster?

Job Scope:

You will be assigned specific tasks or packages on a project where you will then report to the Lead Engineer. In addition, you will be assigned a mentor that will guide and support your progress.

Our Subsea Engineering positions include: design and engineering of our products, establishing specifications for procurement of equipment and follow up of our suppliers and subcontractors. We plan and prepare (prepare procedures and material lists, perform analysis, interface checks, operability evaluations amongst others) for offshore operations and mobilisations / de-mobilisations. Finally, you will receive practical experience as offshore project engineer onboard our pipelay and construction vessels.

Accountabilities / Responsibilities:

Main accountabilities

Subsea Engineering may include, but is not limited to the following areas:


Perform detail engineering, structural and piping calculations, produce manufacturing documentation and follow up fabrication at our suppliers for permanent structures such as: manifolds, PLETs, PLEMs, ILTs and flow line spools. Typical software that you will use is AUTODESK (Inventor 3D, AutoCAD 2D, 3DS MAX), STAAD.PRO, Mathcad and AutoPIPE


Subsea installation and subsea lifting includes planning and execution of installation operations. Including products such as trees, manifolds, PLETs, PLEMs, spools, umbilical’s and flexible flowlines. You will be familiar with our lifting/installation know-how and offshore procedures. You may be using analysis tools such as Orcaflex and SIMO/SIMVIS.


Ensure contractual compliance in all project deliverables related to materials selection, corrosion protection and manufacturing. Follow up fabrication and manufacturing of all subsea components according to specification. Manufacturing processes include forging, welding, HIPing, cold forming and coating. Follow up external subcontractors worldwide. Working interdisciplinary in projects as well as with a large team of materials specialists will provide ample opportunity for learning.

Technical Safety and Reliability (TS&R):

Improve and demonstrate safety and integrity of TechnipFMC supplied system solutions, service and products by integrating collective technical safety and reliability practices and expertise into company execution and its outputs by focusing on the following areas; input to FEED, tenders and projects concerning the choice of technical solutions in compliance with safety and reliability requirements, enable the execution of the technical risk management activities such as SIL, FMECA, RAM, HAZOP, HAZID, and follow up product development and improvements to ensure compliance with safety and reliability requirements.

Risers and Flowlines:

Design and analysis of flexible riser and flowline systems, including use of analysis tools such as Orcaflex, Flexcom3D and Deeplines.

Design, fabrication and installation of rigid pipeline systems, including use of analysis tools such as Orcaflex and Abaqus, pipeline fabrication follow up and pipeline installation procedures for offshore installation.


Design, plan and follow up of operations such as: tie-in, ready for operation (RFO), diver or diverless intervention, commissioning and seabed intervention. You will be familiar with our intervention know-how and offshore procedures. Intervention engineers are often known as the “miscellaneous” engineers who tie all of the departments together. Often exposed to offshore work and ROV operations.

Profile requirements:

Must have:

  • Engineering Degree (Master, Bachelor or equivalent)
  • Good verbal and written English
  • Proactive and eager to learn
  • Able to work in a multi culture environment
  • This position suits graduated engineers with major area of study within materials, mechanics, static and dynamic analyses, hydrodynamics, marine structures and subsea operations as well as systems.

Additional information:

At TechnipFMC we tackle some of the most complex technical engineering challenges in the world. We create safe and sustainable solutions to the seemingly impossible. We bring new levels of efficiency and optimization to vast and complex endeavours in the harshest and most unforgiving environments.

This gives our people a remarkable environment to explore and incredible opportunities to grow. Our people have the opportunity to travel, to work in different places and cultures. To deliver projects with real geopolitical impact, from a desk on the other side of the world. See an idea through from an office in Norway and a meeting in Rio to a deepwater field off the coast of Angola.

We offer projects that will challenge and stretch you. Colleagues across the globe who will stimulate and support you. Opportunities and achievements that will accelerate your development. A sense of adventure that will take you to places you never imagined.

Now that you know about us, we want to know about you, will you share the vision of TechnipFMC? For more information please contact; Subsea Engineering Manager, Kristin Johannessen or HRBP Bodil Rutgersen.
