GL5523: GROUP PROJECT AND RESEARCH SKILLS (2016-2017)

Last modified: 16 Nov 2016 18:05


Course Overview

The aim of this course is to teach a critical approach for evaluation and appraisal and the ability to carry this out as part of a diverse team.  The course is centred around a three-week group project in reservoir modelling, incorporating dynamic modelling and history matching.  This course will allow the development of the necessary skills to undertake the independent project.  Specific elements will also address: presentation and communication skills; standards of professional behaviour; work in different teams in pursuit of common goals; and how to design and execute a research project relevant to the hydrocarbon industry.
