Our Energy Management degree develops the knowledge and skills required for a successful career in the energy industry.
This Masters course has been developed to build on the links Robert Gordon University has with the energy industry and has received accreditation from the Energy Institute at the level of Chartered Energy Manager.
Our MSc is particularly suitable for:
•Technical specialists with no management experience who need a management education specific to their industry;
•Technical specialists from other industries with transferable skills that can be applied to the energy industry wishing to change career in the direction of energy;
•Those from the energy industry, but without the work experience required to study the MBA or Oil and Gas Management, who want to study a focused energy management degree;
•Those who have completed a general MBA and wish to gain an energy education through CPD.
On this course students gain experience of key decision-making in a range of business functions. This knowledge can then be applied at a strategic level in the Strategic Management or the Energy Industry modules.
Specialist energy management modules provide the theory, policy and practice aspects of the energy industry. There is also the opportunity to study optional subject areas such as Health, Safety and Risk in an Organisational Context and Oil and Gas Contract Law. The project modules allow students to further synthesise and apply specialist knowledge to professional practice.
Some of the modules that will be studied are: •Renewable Energy Management •Energy Policy and the Environment •Strategic Analysis for the Energy Sector •Risk Management and Business Continuity •Oil and Gas Economics •Energy Project
