CDA is delighted to offer two fully funded scholarship places for the Graduate Certificate Petroleum Data Management course delivered by Robert Gordon University (RGU). The course welcomes its third cohort of students in September, and has been designed in partnership with the industry, to develop students’ understanding of subsurface exploration and production data management. The course is offered fully online and is suitable for study alongside full-time work, anywhere in the world, making it an ideal access route to education in petroleum data management, as well as an opportunity for those with relevant work experience to have their skills and knowledge developed and recognised with a qualification.
Katy Heidenreich, Oil & Gas UK Operations Optimisation Manager and CDA Board Director, said:
“Cutting edge technologies are generating not only new data but new insights from existing data, so it’s vital we have the right skills to preserve and realise its full potential through effective data management.
“We are delighted to be able to offer scholarships for this course which was developed in partnership with industry and offers career development benefits to current practitioners as well as to new entrants. I would particularly encourage women to explore this opportunity as successful operations depend on industry’s ability to access and attract talent from the widest pool available.”
The CDA scholarships are open to any student, worldwide, who has been accepted onto the course and who is in genuine financial need. Women, and people from the Americas, Asia and Australasia are particularly encouraged to apply.
Scholarship applications close on 6 July 2018
