RGU’s advanced teaching methods and technology will form the foundation of the trainings offer by the ICM Group.

A word from the team

“This partnership is a fantastic opportunity for RGU to use the advanced drilling simulation to help a major energy business provide vital skills to the workforce. The RGU 6000 simulator will be used to carry out advance well control training for one of ICM’s clients and our students will also benefit because the company are looking at ways to provide their own expertise throughout the semester. This partnership is a great way of showcasing RGU’s facilities and the potential impact they can have far beyond our Garthdee campus. It is the ideal way for both academia and industry to work hand in hand to make improvements and ensure that those working in the offshore energy sector are equipped with the knowledge and skills they need to be successful.”

~ Professor Phil Hassard, RGU’s drilling simulator manager 


“The partnership will allow ICM to further expand their capabilities to train and develop the Oil and Gas workforce worldwide. We will provide cyber chair, well control, MPD, Stuck pipe and other technical courses in Aberdeen utilizing the great infrastructure of Robert Gordon university.

This partnership also entails initiatives to collaborate with RGU to serve the academic body providing workshops, lectures and opportunities to further develop the students who are wishing to pursue a career in the energy sector.”
