Your programme of study

If you have an interest in the earth in relation to minerals extraction Geophysics has plenty of scope to get involved in the profession itself and expertise required to explore different types of terrain but in a newly evolving landscape of assistive technology companies offering the latest methods of discovering production and risk issues beneath the earths surface. You learn these latest methods of finding out data to understand risk and potential engineering issues in difficult to reach places. Signal processing uses the latest advances in sensor development to set up an alert system to monitor specific areas which are normally difficult to reach. Seismic processing looks at how the earth moves not only in times of earthquakes but natural movement from chemical reactions beneath the surface of the earth.

Borehole extraction is used in mineral extraction but also to determine if reserves are live or loading is safe and much and more. The skills you learn apply equally to current and future mineral extraction as they do to land and sea where extraction has historically taken place and where there is application for a different use from a remediated coal mine for example where loading can be critical to risk for future use. The programme equips you with skills in hydrocarbon, minerals and associated industries or research. You understand structure from near surface to deep interior learning from geophysical data analysis and interpretation.

Your programme of study

The UK is one of the largest innovators and producers within biotechnology and pharmaceutical products with known multinationals providing treatments for large scale disease issues, newer companies providing batch customer medication and newer companies working with data and biotechnology researchers to provide customised medicines down to the individual level. The data and information now available with the advent of the Internet of Things and smart technologies has radically changed the way in which medicine and pharmacy can potentially be delivered in the future, opening up not just the possibility of customised medicines but also customised and specialist entrepreneurs within the field of biotech, pharmacy, and similar disciplines to provide high growth start up companies which address a real need for innovation within pharmacological areas and offer therapeutic treatments whilst we go about our every day lives.

Developed in conjunction with the industrial partners of the Stratified Medicine Scotland Innovation Centre (SMS-IC) one of five innovation centres in Scotland some of which cross over in terms of innovation and technologies.Stratified Medicine holds huge potential to enhance timely development of new treatments for human disease. It is among the most important concepts to emerge in 21st century clinical science and will be a crucial component of the global drive to increase the efficacy, safety and cost effectiveness of new medicines.

If you are a person with ideas and a constant stream of research backing up your ideas and you have potential to be a company start up in this area the programme is directly aimed at getting your ideas off the ground and towards becoming a fully functioning enterprise in your own right in Scotland. You learn all there is to know about process innovation in order to progress your idea and samples through to small scale production testing whilst learning anything you didn't know about genome enabled medicines, biologic drug discovery, Pharmacokinetics and more. You get the best researchers to teach you as this programme is delivered in conjunction with the Stratified Medicine Scotland Innovation Centre partners.

Your programme of study

If your environmental interests are concerned with pollution of any kind the Environmental Pollution and Remediation programme covers all you need to know to assess and analyse pollutants in our environment. You understand legislation and policies relating to pollution control, known environment risk assessment methods and regulation and regulators. In todays world there are many pollution issues not least of which is air pollution and its affect on our health and quality of life. Pollution control is essential in waterways and sea to ensure ecology and the food chain are not affected by major issues and soil can also be contaminated in many different ways over the longer term or in the short term.

Employment options include consultancy work to advise all types of organisations, sectors and business and support regulators at busy times. You can work as a regulator within central and local government and private business involved in operations that affect the environment, Sectors you are likely to work in cross energy, agriculture, fisheries, waterways, and specific polluting industrial areas. New technology is also becoming widely available to sense different pollutants in the environment with many different tools and options becoming available to experts in the area. Different countries require different levels of regulation but there is now a growing social need by major organisations devoted to health and quality of life such as UNEP to solve major pollution issues that put us as a species at risk.

Your programme of study

Ageing infrastructure from the golden days of the oil and gas and energy industry is now being identified for decommissioning. Some of it is in the North Sea but many other countries are increasingly realising that they need to decommission properly and effectively due to environmental regulation. Building a platform has provided a rapid and continuous learning process since the start of the energy industry but learning how to decommission a platform has now started a rapid learning experience about best practise methods across the supply chain and facilities available to deal with entire platforms and their various facilities are now an important concern.

The degree will cover all aspects of decommissioning process including engineering, legal, environmental regulation, business and project management risks and challenges across the oil and gas industry, You study the important aspects of offshore subsea systems, well plugging, offshore installations, project evaluating and economics, environment impact assessment process an regulation, and a group project in comparative assessment. You also look at process shutdown and disposal.  This is a highly complex area due to the level of environmental contaminants and different types of facilities to take down.

There are many oil and gas companies now decommissioning with the Brent Delta platform being a highly publicised example. You may be interested in reading about decommissioning from the Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy which gives you more information about the process, the companies involved and some examples of environmental statements and other useful information https://www.gov.uk/guidance/oil-and-gas-decommissioning-of-offshore-installations-and-pipelines
