Abstract

The School of Engineering at RGU has made significant investment in developing methods to ensure graduates are “industry-ready”. Two approaches are highlighted here. As visits to oil rigs are not often possible or practical for students it was decided to develop a virtual space for students to familiarise themselves with aspects of the offshore environment. In addition to this, the DART was installed on campus for simulation of a number of critical processes. These simulation tools give students experiences that can increase their desirability to employers.
