PROGRAMME OVERVIEW The course is delivered by Robert Gordon University in partnership with Global College Malta. Students will be taught by lecturers from Robert Gordon University at the premises of Global College Malta located in SmartCity Malta. The blended model of tuition is based on a combination of oncampus lectures delivered by RGU staff at GCM and distance learning. We have worked closely with industry partners, blending a mix of solid theory and hands-on practical experience to develop this course which is now well recognised within industry. The course focuses on the concept of effective well construction, and aims to develop high levels of professional skill in the key areas of well design, drilling and operations management. Through this focus and examining the lifecycle of the well, the course develops high levels of professional competence in the key areas of well design, drilling and operations management and will give you real practical and academic skills which will enhance your career options. The course represents a signicant advance in the delivery of specialised professional development. Its modular structure and exible delivery are designed especially to meet the real world needs of industry.

HOW YOU WILL LEARN Those studying on this blended model course will be taught via a combination of lectures, guest speakers, seminars, lectures, tutorials, discussion and online tutorial via our virtual learning environment. The blended model course uses the same material and content as the full-time oncampus course and typically is delivered by the same subject specialists. Individual Project In order to complete the full MSc you will submit an individual engineering research project with an industry focus. This is designed to allow you to demonstrate the skills and knowledge gained through the course along with integrating and implementing research methods, whilst being of practical relevance. BENEFITS TO YOU This course is fully accredited by the Energy Institute (EI) which ensures the course content is to the highest industry standards providing you with key recognition. This course will also count towards the academic requirements of the EI allowing you to work towards your chartered status. As part of Robert Gordon University we also have an outstanding employment rate for our postgraduate students at 96%* and have been named Best UK University for Employment**.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES Previous graduates have gone on to gain employment in every oil producing area of the world and work for many of the oil majors and drilling contractors. This innovative course is designed to deliver tomorrows drilling and well engineering experts and is relevant to senior and middle managers and engineers. YOU WILL LEARN TO: Develop a critical approach to the implementation of drilling and well engineering and to provide a broad and sound understanding of the scientic, engineering and management aspects related to selected areas of effective drilling and well engineering Apply innovative thinking and develop greater professional knowledge which can be applied to drilling and well engineering Use initiative, creativity, interpersonal skills and a high level of independent critical judgement at a senior level

The course was considered part of my Career Development. During my two years of study, I had the chance to collaborate with Industry Professionals and Professors as well as very experienced fellow students. The structure was such that Interactive Discussions and Exercises enhanced my overall skills and prepared me for day-to-day Job Interfaces. All this intensive time created good friendships and most importantly Academic and Industry linkage invaluable for the future.
