The Master in Jewellery Design is structured to consolidate the preparation in strategic sectors of jewelry, giving the participants a chance to develop and be ready to respond to different market opportunities.

The pathway of study is developed through direct project experiences in laboratory, learning of traditional techniques, knowledge of materials and new production techniques. The student receives the methodological bases for the creative process and the professional practice, including the ability to present and promote projects.

Special attention is given to the knowledge of the culture, the historical-critical and economic instruments of the sector. The history of jewellery design, in particular, through the analysis of technical and creative evolution reaches the contemporary collections. The course examines in detail the methods and creative processes of design as part of the international jewellery, referring to specific production environments with the example of several case histories.

Design workshops introduce students to the creation of watch collections (for jewellery, fashion and sports) where the study of design is linked to the technical and mechanical characteristics of the components of the clock. Fine jewellery design focuses on the study of gemstones including their characteristics, nuances, colors and market values. The workshop dedicated to Industrial Jewellery Design illustrates the entire range of jewellery, the use of precious and non-precious, unconventional materials, complex surface treatments.

The Master in Jewellery Design is structured to acquire a higher expertise in the three-dimensional design: from a strong knowledge of the geometry to the most advanced construction solutions of the jewel, using specific software. The course is developed starting from a basic understanding of the 3D program and is structured in order to achieve an advanced level of design capability.

Knowledge of theories and experiences in the field of Marketing and Advertising allows students to adopt a new approach in the role of Designer Jewellery, by learning communication methodologies for collections of jewellery and watches created for major brands and for the great diffusion.

The Master ends with a final project, as a synthesis of the academic course, useful later as a portfolio to enter the world of work.

Oil and gas remains one of our major energy resources and the recovery of these resources is increasingly important, just as it was in the last century. Read more

Overview

Oil and gas remains one of our major energy resources and the recovery of these resources is increasingly important, just as it was in the last century. What has changed with time is the need to recover more of the reservoir, operating in harsher environments both physically and economically. Equally there are challenges due to changes in knowledge and the relative lack of experience from engineers in the market. Traditionally in the UK, the vast majority of engineers entering the industry do so through two routes; first as facilities or surface engineers - chemical and process, mechanical and electrical engineering working on the processing systems to stabilise fluid from the reservoir. The second route is through the petroleum engineering or sub-surface engineering route which sees engineers develop knowledge and skills necessary to locate, drill and extract oil and gas reserves.

This programme (See http://www.postgraduate.hw.ac.uk/prog/msc-oilandgas-technology/ ) was been designed with the help of the industry to provide a cross over between surface and sub-surface engineering functions with the intent that future oil and gas operations can be better optimised to enhance recovery of the reserves. In order to maximise recovery, surface engineers in an operating company must communicate effectively with the reservoir and production engineers within their own company as well as develop relationships with and assess the work of contractors and vendors when designing and constructing facilities. Therefore, surface engineers need to be competent not only in the areas of process design, pipeline engineering, but also be familiar with reservoir engineering, production technology and a variety of other engineering and management subjects, such as safety and control, management of projects, economics and planning, etc.

The programme contains 8 taught courses covering key topics in surface and sub-surface engineering. Two projects towards the end of the programme provide opportunities for participants to demonstrate their knowledge in the design of a surface facility, and to study a specific topic of interest.

Scholarships available

We have a number of fully funded Scottish Funding Council (SFC) scholarships available for students resident in Scotland applying for Oil and Gas Technology. Find out more about this scholarship and how to apply http://www.hw.ac.uk/student-life/scholarships/postgraduate-funded-places.htm .

Programme content

For the MSc and PGDip degrees, students are required to take eight taught courses. MSc students then complete the programme by undertaking two 30 credit projects.
