The University of Western Australia has developed an innovative Master of Engineering (Energy Systems Management) program to be delivered via a mix of technologies which provide flexible learning opportunities irrespective of the physical location of students.
The program has been specifically developed by UWA’s Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics for professionals working in the oil and gas industry who wish to advance their career and professional development.
The nature of the industry means that for many students, further education has been difficult due to the requirement for them to be offshore for prolonged periods of time or to travel frequently with their project commitments. Students will be able to specialise in Asset Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Process Engineering or Offshore Engineering.
The course materials will be delivered via ‘blended learning’ which uses a variety of technologies including: live online tutorials using web-conferencing technologies, and pre-recorded lecture presentations delivered via The Universities’ learning management system. Students also have the opportunity to participate in classes run on campus, giving them a fully blended experience.
“This program has been developed by world-class academics and industry specialists, and is just one of the many ways our Faculty is responding to the changing demands of our thriving resources industry” said Professor Mark Bush Dean of the Faculty of Engineering, Computing and Mathematics.
He said UWA engineering students were fortunate to have the benefits of working with global engineering experts and researchers who are also leading major oil and gas projects in Western Australia.
The program starts on August 13 and applications are now being accepted. If you would like further information and an application pack please contact Vicki Nairn, Project Officer, The University of Western Australia on +61 8 6488 4779.
