Course content

Engineering has been a key element in the development of society since the industrial revolution. Very little in modern society remains untouched by the actions of engineers. The Engineering Council, in Chartered Engineer and Incorporated Engineer Standard (UKSPEC), sets out its definition of an Engineer:

Engineers are characterised by their ability to develop appropriate solutions to engineering problems, using new or existing technologies, through innovation, creativity and change. They might develop and apply new technologies, promote advanced designs and design methods, introduce new and more efficient production techniques, marketing and construction concepts, pioneer new engineering services and management methods. Chartered Engineers are variously engaged in technical and commercial leadership and possess effective interpersonal skills.

It is widely reported that Oil and Gas engineering industries suffer from a lack of graduates with the Further Learning which incorporate management skills. In order to address these issues the Oil and Gas Engineering with Management seeks to provide a sound education in areas of Oil and Gas engineering through an integrated and co-ordinated programme.
