Applied Instrumentation and Control (Oil & Gas) - MSc

Course Description

The oil and gas industries are widely affected by a growing range of factors, including shifting global economics, an evolving global energy mix and environmental issues.

There is an increasing demand for those working in the industries to develop an intelligent awareness of this complex business environment and to grasp the ways in which these changes will affect organisations.

Developed in conjunction with industry, the School of Engineering and Built Environment at GCU offers a suite of programmes designed to provide the knowledge required for a range of professional careers within the oil and gas industry.

The oil and gas industry instrumentation professional must be equipped to understand the principles and implementation of instrumentation, the importance of efficient and reliable measurement and control systems and have a suitably wide perspective of the subject area so that a number of different approaches to a problem can be identified. This programme addresses these requirements.

This course can also be taken in January 2018 - see the web-page for more details: http://www.gcu.ac.uk/ebe/study/courses/details/index.php/P02555-1FTAB-1718/Applied_Instrumentation_and_Control_(Oil_&_Gas)?utm_source=ZZZZ&utm_medium=web&utm_campaign=courselisting

Career Opportunities

The programme caters for an extremely wide range of industries and services for which the measurement of processes and environmental factors are vital to their business performance. It will also be of interest to companies that manufacture and supply such measurement systems. The range of industrial sectors includes: petrochemical, agrochemical, the food industry, pharmaceutical, environmental, optics and optoelectronics, medical instrumentation, power generation and the water industry. The employment areas within these sectors include: computer controlled instrumentation systems, process instrumentation, technical management and sales, process control and automation, sensor development and manufacture, instrument working and test and measurement systems.
