The MSc Maintenance Management (Oil & Gas) takes your existing engineering qualification or experience, regardless of discipline, and gives you the modern cost effective maintenance management techniques that the Oil and Gas industry are looking for.
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.
This programme provides suitably qualified or experienced engineers of all disciplines with modern, cost effective maintenance management techniques for the efficient operation of all types of sophisticated, complex equipment.
Why Choose This Programme?
Today’s modern and efficient companies require top level maintenance strategies to match their investment. This impacts many industries particularly the advanced manufacturing technologies, transport industry, food production and the oil and gas industry. This has resulted in a considerable gap between current maintenance skill set and the required skills and expertise needed to maximise the potential benefits from the use of technologies.
The taught modules are either assessed by coursework only or a combination of coursework and examination. In the latter case the final mark is determined by weighted average of the two elements. The MSc project is assessed by project reports, practical operation and an electronic presentation.
Graduates of this programme can expect to find work in the areas of maintenance engineering/management, asset management, condition monitoring and reliability and safety engineering. Recent graduates, from the MSc Maintenance Management programme, have gone on to work for various employers including: Royal Mail, British Petroleum, British Energy, Scottish Power, First Scotrail, Siemens plc, Sellafield, Babcock International Group, Ciba Speciality Chemicals, Allied Bakeries, Alcan and Albion Automotive amongst others.
