The NSERC CREATE Training Program for Offshore Technology Research (OTR) is an opportunity for highly-qualified personnel to study, research and intern in the growing offshore industry and build on the research strengths associated with Canada’s research priority on natural resources and energy.

The program is in response to identified needs in the offshore industry and has been designed to ensure that trainees receive professional training and active participation, team building, critical thinking, key industry problem solving, writing and presentation skills, networking with others, mentoring and career development.

OTR graduate students will take specialized courses and focus on research in four theme areas: floating structures, mooring lines and risers, corrosion material engineering, and subsea systems. During the path of their research, students will participate in a four-month internship with an industrial or research partner.
