  25. 25. MSc Asset Integrity Management During the course of our Market Research we talked to the whole range of course stakeholders from Industry, Professional Bodies, MSc Asset Management Alumni, Internal and external Asset Management Experts and Potential Students. Here are some of the things they had to say… Dere Ogbe, Offshore Support Engineer, BP “I found the Asset Management course very useful as it gave me a backdrop to understand how various machines and processes should be organised to deliver best value to the platform. On a review of the Course Outline (for the new MSc Asset Integrity Management) I believe this is very practical and is a current reflection of were the petroleum industry is, in trying to ensure the integrity of its systems, the competency of the people that use it, and their ability to safely deliver the best value from these assets.”
  26. 26. MSc Asset Integrity Management Vee Narayan, Leading Authority on Maintenance & Reliability Engineering “The Asset Integrity Management MSc offers students a holistic approach to managing integrity and reliability of physical assets through their life cycles, with an emphasis on teamwork to deliver real business benefits.” Jim Wardhaugh, Leading Authority on Maintenance Management “Integrity is a must – a licence to operate in terms of HSE – but also a must to operate reliably and profitably.” Maurice Thomson, Structures and Pipelines Integrity Engineer, ConocoPhillips “The Asset Integrity Management MSc at RGU is a hybrid between obtaining technical knowledge and developing management skills, enabling professional development and value realisation within your organisation.”
  27. 27. The Robert Gordon University MSc Asset Integrity Management A unique course relevant to those who aspire to competently manage and co-ordinate physical assets to optimum effect. We combine theory with best practice for a pragmatic approach to Asset Integrity Management.
