has been nominated for the award due to its partnership with the University of Aberdeen.
AGR recently announced its collaboration with the honourable institution whereby the AGR team will contribute to the delivery of the petroleum engineering Masters programme. The partnership follows on from AGR’s involvement in the MSc Field Development Plan and Economics (FDP) course, which was a team-based integrated case study involving the technical and commercial development of an offshore oil field. The FDP exercise was developed and led by AGR’s TRACS Training and the students’ presentations were evaluated by a panel of industry professionals and academics from the University.
The new MSc Petroleum Engineering programme begins in September 2015 and is the latest addition to the world class suite of engineering programmes at the Aberdeen University bringing students closer to the energy industry.
Mark Bentley, Training Director at AGR commenting on the award nomination, said: “We are very honoured to be running for the Getenergy Awards, especially in the Education Partnership category. We have been delighted to be involved in the inaugural development of the MSc Petroleum Engineering programme this year. TRACS Training exists to support learning and development across the breadth of the business, from student to corporate CEO levels, and our team of engineers and geoscientists are therefore perfectly positioned to offer such support to the university.”
