A university in Aberdeen has launched a degree to help workers in the energy industry improve their career prospects.
Robert Gordon University says its new two-year qualification will focus on commercial practice and management activities in the energy sector.
Called the MSc Commercial Practice for the Energy Sectors degree, it will train technical specialists, engineers and surveyors on how to work within the oil and gas industries.
Gerard Buda, Postgraduate Programme Leader at the School said: “The relevance of surveying and commercial management skills to the heavy engineering, petrochemical and offshore industries has increased in recent years. Many energy professionals with relevant technical industry experience are looking to develop essential commercial skills including risk management and supply chain vulnerability in order to enhance their current careers or following a change in job role.”
The MSc programme is officially recognised by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors.
