Course Overview

The course is designed for petroleum industry professionals who have significant upstream petroleum engineering operational experience but have had little to no education in management responsibilities and methods. This is despite the fact that as their careers have developed, they are likely to have accrued increasing managerial responsibilities. The whole programme is highly interactive, and it is expected to enrich the students’ knowledge in key managerial areas; sharpen their managerial skills; and enhance their professional competence in today’s highly dynamic petroleum engineering environment.

Module Teaching & Assessment for all modules except Dissertation

Assessment on the course is designed to be an integral part of the learning process for students and to enhance and confirm their knowledge and practice. Formative feedback will be provided to students through a combination of self-reflection, peer group and tutor feedback. Summative assessments will provide a measure of the extent to which students have achieved the learning outcomes of the modules. Assessment within the modules will take various forms including coursework assignments, reports, presentations, examinations and the dissertation. Full details of the assessment procedures for each module are shown in the individual module specification.

All modules, with the exception of the Dissertation, will be assessed by a combination of summative/end-of-module written papers and formative/continuous assessment (up to 50%). Continuous assessment will be undertaken via a combination of teaching and learning approaches including

  • Case studies
  • Project work
  • Team/group exercises

Module Teaching & Assessment for Dissertation

Each student will be allocated a supervisor who will help them with the development of their project proposal, oversee progress with the project, comment as appropriate on draft materials produced by the student and be available to assist the student with the project, as appropriate.

The dissertation/major project is assessed via the production of a dissertation of some 5,000 words in length.

Where necessary, a viva voce will be conducted in those instances where the provisional mark is considered to be a marginal pass.

All assessments will be submitted via the internationally recognised plagiarism software Turnitin.
