Your programme of study

There is a lot you can do with data in any organisation. With the increase in technology and IOT plus the 'Big Data' revolution the collation of data and the power it holds to transform organisations, ensure health and safety in difficult to reach places, keep ahead of life cycles, drive change and innovation has huge potential for any organisation. Within the oil and gas and energy sectors and related supply chain the revolution of supply and demand is already happening.

If you already work in data either in the energy sector or other related sectors this programme specialises in its application to the oil and gas sector and it is partnered with Common Data Access Ltd which is a not for profit subsidiary of Oil and Gas UK. It provides data management services to the oil and gas industry. The programme is developed with academics at University of Aberdeen and industrial partners and it covers data protection, governance and quality plus project and data management and legal commercial and security aspects of data management.

The programme develops your key data management requirements working in interdisciplinary teams in the energy industry and is sponsored and input by multinationals within those industries.
