RGU Launches Bespoke Course for Engineering Students

Robert Gordon University in Aberdeen, Scotland, is launching a bespoke engineering program that will allow its students to choose from a variety of modules offered by the university.

RGU, known for its close association with the oil and gas industry, will have the new Professional Engineering Programme ready in time for the next academic year, which begins this autumn. The distance-learning program, aimed at engineers currently working in the energy industry, will enable students to undertake individual modules to support their career progression – ranging from Asset Life Cycle Analysis to Drilling Technology to Offshore Renewable Energy Conversion.

Students partaking in the program will also be able to work towards a postgraduate certificate, diploma or masters award as they see fit.

Jo-Anne Tait, RGU's School of Engineering Learning Enhancement Co-ordinator, commented in a statement:

"The Professional Engineering Programme gives students complete autonomy over the subjects that they choose and the level of award that they study towards, whether they want to complete just one module or gradually work towards a Masters degree.

"We believe that this approach will give energy professionals the chance to broaden and deepen their knowledge and understanding of a variety of engineering-based facets of the industry and to support their career development and progression."
