发布时间:2009-12-14   作者:  信息来源:Engineering  提供者:姬明爽

        KBC Advanced Technologies plc (KBC) announces the launch of MSc in Petroleum Downstream technology in partnership with University of Surrey.

        KBC has been collaborating with the University of Surrey for many years. Recent pressures within the industry to improve the efficiency of all processes combined with a worldwide shortage of engineers with relevant skills has led to the creation of this qualification through the relationship between KBC and the University of Surrey. A unique collaboration between experts in the industry and academia, the programme has been recently validated and approved for award of the MSc qualification.

        Aimed at developing the knowledge and understanding necessary to become an effective leader and decision maker in the petrochemical refining and downstream process industries, the MSc has been designed as a three year part-time programme, studied on a modular basis. There are eight one week modules plus a research project all taught on University campus using a mixture of KBC and university teaching resources. The programme will start with the Energy Optimisation and Hydrocarbon Loss Minimisation Module from 4-8 January 2010.

       “This programme of study provides a unique opportunity to benefit from the academic facilities of University of Surrey combined with KBC expertise in improving real plant operators, worldwide,” commented George Bright, CEO of KBC.

        Rex Thorpe, Head of the Chemical and Process Engineering and Professor of Multiphase Engineering at University of Surrey, stated, “The modules that make up the new MSc represent an opportunity for employers to send their graduate staff for continuing professional development in an environment where real mastery of the material is required and measured. The opportunity for the staff member is to build the modules into a university qualification.”
