Your programme of study

Have you ever wanted to invent something mechanical, prevent environmental damage to a building from floods, fire, explosions, landslides and other natural disasters, understand risks and reliability across buildings, renewables, and other areas? Do you want to improve quality of life across environmental remediation, farming, smart grid, green technology, food production, housing, transportation, safety, security, healthcare and water? Do you find it fascinating to try to make things work from what you have available? There will be plenty of major challenges to get involved with in the coming years crossing over into Nano technologies, advanced materials, electronic printing, grapheme technologies, wearable's, 3d printing, renewables and recycling and biotechnologies. Technology now means that you can design and engineer from anywhere in the world, including your home. Advanced Mechanical Engineering looks at computational mechanics, response to materials and reliability engineering. The Victorians set up some of the most advanced mechanical engineering of our times and in many ways they were the biggest mechanical engineering innovators ever.

This programme specialises in mechanical engineering so you are becoming proficient in designing anything that has background moving parts to allow it to work such as engines, motor driven devices and the effects of nature on mechanical objects and their ability to perform. You also look at how material composition can alter performance issues and provide new innovative methods to solve challenges in every day life and natural and other risks to machinery in all situations.  Your employment options are very varied, you may want to work within consumer goods to design and improve everyday objects like white goods, or you may like to be involved in very large scale hydro electric and power driving machinery in energy , manufacturing or large scale developments, or you may decide to get involved in innovation and enterprise yourself.

Your programme of study

The energy industry has historically provided immense rewards and immense challenges in terms of infrastructure development in very challenging environments. Over time there have been many learning points as a result of process which did not address the challenge sufficiently resulting in new standards of safety, assessing risk and managing the challenges presented in mineral extraction. The industry has come a long way since its inception in Aberdeen in the 1970s and globally and University of Aberdeen has acquired this knowledge and research to work with industry and train the next Safety and Reliability Engineers to continuously improve safety. This programme is highly regarded from a well known provider in the industry. You visit industry and receive technical lectures with practical sessions to provide further awareness of the responsibility involved in the energy industry.

The programme is ideal if you are from an engineering, physics or mathematics background but it is also relevant to you if you studied stress analysis and thermodynamics with experience from the industry.

Your programme of study

This is a highly specialised area of oil and gas engineering in which you learn the discipline and wider areas that feed into it. You are taught by industry respected researchers and academics who have followed the oil and gas industry since the 1970s and its inception in Aberdeen city. Aberdeen is at the heart of the oil and gas industry in Europe and is known worldwide as a major energy hub.

Reservoir Engineering is a highly specialised but essential part of upstream oil and gas extraction process. It requires detailed knowledge of geology, performance and management of reserves. Often these reserves are deep in oceans or land and in very difficult and hard to reach locations with complex geology  so it is essential to have a high degree of skills and knowledge to understand how best these reserves can be tapped into in critically sensitive environments.

Your programme of study

Ever since the start of the oil and gas industry in the North Sea there safety has been a constant learning process within the industry to improve safety in all areas. It often informs other industries in terms of best practise knowledge which can provide useful learning to other industries.The knowledge gained in the North Sea has also been transferred to other sites globally to ensure risks are minimised when extracting energy. There are numerous risks associated with energy extraction such as the environment in which operators work in, failure in facilities and machinery, human factors which need process and safety factors designing in, and a very large ignition source. The energy industry can be one of the most hazardous industries to work in but due to the risks involved it can often provide a highly safe environment to work in due to the amount of measures in place to protect everything on site and that is where the discipline of Process Safety can ensure a very high level of safety in which to extract minerals.
