Robert Gordon University (RGU) has been teaching energy courses for 50 years, with the first energy course delivered in 1971, when RGU was still Robert Gordon’s Institute of Technology (RGIT).
RGIT pioneered some of the ground-breaking courses that were specifically designed for the offshore industry. The University staff were also involved in carrying out extensive research and consultancy work for oil and gas companies.
The University has had a deep and lasting impact on the offshore industry through many of its contributions. Aside from producing outstanding graduates and a successful educational game – the ‘Bruce Oil Management Centre’, RGU was involved in the establishment of the Offshore Survival Centre which eventually grew into the world’s largest provider of safety training for offshore oil and gas workers.
Since then, the University has significantly evolved, offering a range of demand-driven, energy related Master’s degrees across a variety of subjects including business, computing, engineering and law.
The University’s Aberdeen Business School which has won the Business School of the Year (The Times Higher Education Awards 2020) accolade, offers highly relevant and specialist energy related business and finance Master’s degrees. Recognised internationally and accredited by bodies such as CIPD, IOSH and others, these courses are practical, relevant and designed in partnership with industry.
The energy sector is highly competitive and it is undeniable that the use of information technology plays a vital role in the success of a company. As a result, there is a high demand for professionals who can apply IT solutions to problems faced within this industry. The MSc IT for the Energy Industry course has been developed to bridge this gap and provide training in software development tools and techniques, IT service management and geoscience, including renewable energy.

Accredited by the Energy Institute, the courses explore key issues around energy, the environment, sustainable development, licensing, contracts, climate change law and policy among others.
