This is a unique course relevant for those who aspire to competently manage and co-ordinate physical assets to optimum effect. Study Asset Integrity Management online via distance learning. Our distance learning courses are delivered online through CampusMoodle, the University's virtual learning environment.
Combining theory with best practice, this Engineering Asset Management course is aimed at engineers and management personnel working in an engineering/operations environment. It marks a significant advance in the delivery of specialised professional development, designed to meet the 'real world' needs of industry.
The implementation of asset management practices within an organisation enables it to see tangible benefits such as lower operating costs, longer asset life, improved asset performance, greater reliability, higher safety standards, enhanced environmental support and better informed investment strategies.

Offshore engineering is a rapidly developing discipline. In addition to its traditional relevance to the oil & gas industry, it is expanding to embrace the novel engineering challenges presented by the offshore renewable energy industry. This expansion in scope has been answered at Cranfield University by developing a new state-of-the-art, up-to-date MSc in Offshore Engineering, exploiting Cranfield University's strong track record in offshore renewable energy projects.
This course is suitable for engineering, maths or science graduates who wish to specialise in Offshore Engineering. It develops professional engineers and scientists with the multidisciplinary skills and ability to analyse current and future offshore energy engineering problems.
Cranfield’s MSc in Offshore Engineering is able to provide the new skills needed across this fast developing sector, together with the fundamental engineering understanding necessary, whatever the application. Exciting new disciplines taught in this MSc include advanced operation and maintenance of offshore assets; Health, Safety, Security and Environment; and Risk and Reliability. Students applying for this MSc will be able to choose between two routes: one focusing on detailed engineering aspects, and the other focusing on offshore asset management. Graduates with an MSc in Offshore Engineering will be able to work in a range of different industries including offshore renewables, oil & gas, aquaculture systems and beyond.
Providing a stable, secure and financially viable energy supply is a fundamental issue impacting our homes and workplaces. Cranfield’s expertise relates to all the potential solutions; from our ongoing relationship with oil and gas, to our developing reliance on renewable energy in the world around us.
We have a world class reputation for our industrial-scale research and pilot-scale demonstration programmes in the energy sector. Close engagement with the energy and transport sectors over the last 20 years has produced long-standing strategic partnerships with these sectors' most prominent players. Our strategic links with industry ensures that all of the material taught on your course is relevant, timely and meets the needs of organisations competing within the energy sector. This industry-led education makes our graduates some of the most desirable in the world for energy companies to recruit from.
The taught programme for the Offshore Engineering masters is generally delivered from October to February and is comprised of eight modules.
Students on the part-time programme will complete all of the modules based on a flexible schedule that will be agreed with the course director.
The group project is an applied, multidisciplinary, team-based activity. Often solving real-world, industry-based problems, students are provided with the opportunity to take responsibility for a consultancy-type project while working under academic supervision. Success is dependent on the integration of various activities and working within agreed objectives, deadlines and budgets. Transferable skills such as team work, self-reflection and clear communication are also developed.
The individual project is the chance for students to focus on an area of particular interest to them and their future career. Students select the individual project in consultation with the Thesis Co-ordinator and their Course Director. These projects provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate their ability to carry out independent research; think and work in an original way; contribute to knowledge; and overcome genuine problems in the offshore industry. Many of the projects are supported by external organisations.
Taught modules 40%, group project 20% (or dissertation for part-time students), and individual project 40%.
Successful students develop diverse and rewarding careers in the extremely exciting and challenging fields of offshore oil and gas exploration, underwater engineering, pipeline engineering, risk management in offshore and marine operations, and the emerging offshore renewable energy industry. The international nature of such activities means that career opportunities are not restricted to the domestic market; Cranfield graduates develop careers around the world.
Our proposed programme is designed to provide a foundation to those who will determine the scope and direction of data analytics research within their organisation, and communicate the research outcomes to the ultimate decision-makers. Our graduates are trained to participate in the strategic management process, improve the organisation’s financial performance and help design the effective measures of performance of an organisation for which evidence-based data become a strategic asset in the decision-making process. Therefore, the primary goal is to provide an insight into business data analytics and prepare the students to develop the set of skills and attitudes that will evolve into effective leadership skills.
This programme is subject to approval later in the year. Course content may change.
The main purpose of the programme is to develop a comprehensive set of skills and to encourage the positive attributes that are essential to becoming a successful business analyst.
The degree is committed not only to imparting specialist skills, but also to developing the so-called "soft skills” which are important in influencing people and organisations. As well as obtaining effective and persuasive communication skills, you will also learn about ethics-related issues, which are another key ingredient to responsible leadership.
The MSc in Business Analytics starts online in the summer before the beginning of term 1 with three pre-courses which ensure that every student has the minimum specific background required by all other modules. These subjects are key elements of your course and you are strongly encouraged to complete the modules before you arrive at Cass in order to avoid being at a disadvantage.
In term three you will study:
To satisfy the requirements of the degree course, students must complete:
Assessment of modules on the MSc in Business Analytics, in most cases, is by means of coursework and unseen examination. Coursework takes a variety of formats and may consist of individual or group presentations/reports, set exercises or unseen tests.
There is a compulsory two week induction programme just before Term 1 starts, which is a dedicated introduction to the course and to business analytics. You are required to complete a number of induction workshops at the beginning of the course as follows:
