    Hello,
    I am about to start my third year in Mechanical Engineering and I am thinking about basing my dissertation on something to do with the Oil and Gas industry. I have studied a little on how different rigs and their components work but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on a specific focus of the dissertation. I was considering something to do with a compressor or perhaps a pump but thought this would be as good a place as any to ask for some advice.
    Cheers

    How much support are you likely to receive? Does your university have good links with industry, such that you could perhaps do an industrially sponsored one?

    If not, then something like a pump or compressor would make a good topic, since they're fairly generic bits of mechanical equipment that are heavily utilised on rigs and plants.
