EA Technology Joins Forces with Top University to Develop Energy Related Degree

EA Technology's Power Skills Centre has joined forces with one of the UK's most prestigious higher education engineering establishments, Liverpool John Moores University, to develop a highly specialised master's degree in asset management for the energy industry.

The new MSc in Power Asset Management combines EA Technology's practical expertise in delivering technical consultancy with the University's academic excellence. This unique balance of disciplines ensures engineers not only understand the technical details of power asset management but also gain real experience of how these concepts work in the day-to-day management of operational power assets.

By combining engineering and mathematical analyses with sound business practice and economic theory, the course will help engineers maximise performance, optimise the value and productive life of capital assets, and make best use of capital and operational expenditure.

As a discipline, asset management is capable of delivering increasingly effective and measurable returns. These results are generating increased employer demand for a wide range of asset management skills and competences. Growing international acceptance of PAS 55 as the industry standard for quality asset management systems is also driving this demand across energy, infrastructure, processing and industrial sectors.

This course will help to bridge the growing skills gap and enable employers and their engineers understand the PAS 55 framework, and deliver excellence in asset management to improve capital asset performance and achieve greater cost efficiency.

Reflecting up-to-the-minute academic thinking and the latest industry practice, this pioneering asset management qualification, is predominantly aimed at working engineers and can be taken by students in flexible modular stages.

It is offered with a target award of Postgraduate Certificate (PG Cert - 60 credits), Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip - 120 credits) or Master of Science (MSc - 180 credits). For added flexibility, the modules that make up the PG Cert, PG Dip and MSc can also be offered as individual short courses without examination or academic award.

Each element of the course covers a range of key asset management principles and core power engineering practices to help delegates understand, develop and be capable of introducing and managing power asset management strategies and policies.

Part of the award winning EA Technology Group, the Power Skills Centre offers the largest range of high level, power sector specific training courses in the UK and is able to develop bespoke training solutions to meet specific requirements.
