The Oil and Gas Industry is a major industry that has tremendous impact on the global economy. It includes processes for exploration, extraction, refining, transportation, and marketing petroleum products. In the program of the above processes, there exists a need for extensive monitoring of various parameters through the aid of large number of sensors. Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) technology provides a faster, less costly, more flexible and more convenient option to the wired sensor systems. The field of WSN has evolved considerably due to engineering advances in Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technology which facilitated the development of smart sensors with reduced size, weight and cost.

and software-intensive systems, from technical, organizational and management perspectives. Furthermore, students will be able to develop skills in understanding software techniques and processes in implementing SDLC providing a structured, logical
methodology for software processes. They will be encouraged to understand the need of new techniques to develop an implementation plan for the new software development process.
This module develops an awareness of the concepts, principles, methods, and best practices in software architecture development within the Information Technology domain. It will also reflect on the methods, techniques, and tools for describing software
architecture and documenting design rationale. Furthermore this module enables students to investigate the quality requirements of a software system and the future challenges and emerging trends in software architecture discipline.
The oil and gas industry has witnessed a compelling argument over the past decade to adopt data analytics techniques as upstream problems become too complex to entrust siloed disciplines with deterministic and interpretation analysis methods. Data-driven models have transformed from professional curiosity into industry imperative.
Organizations across the world are trying to make the exploration and the production processes more efficient and optimized. The operations in this field are the major factors that are driving the usage of AI in oil and gas companies.
We need data visualization because a visual summary of information makes it easier to identify patterns and trends. It’s the way the human brain works. Since the purpose of data analysis is to gain insights, data is much more valuable when it is visualized. Even if a data analyst can pull insights from data without visualization, it will be more difficult to communicate the meaning without visualization.
Industrial communications systems are being installed throughout the plant today from connecting simple instruments to programmable logic controllers to PCs throughout the business part of the enterprise. The communications system on the plant underpins the entire operation. It is critical that there should be the knowledge and tools to quickly identify and fix problems as they occur, to ensure that there is a secure and reliable system. This course is intended to make students Design industrial networks, and Install and troubleshoot the industrial networks. Students will be required to describe the various protocols used in industrial data networks compare and contrast the specialized protocols with the standard protocols analyse the special needs of the industrial data network to withstand the environment and real-time response requirements and evaluate the given situation, functional and non-functional requirements and produce a prototype network in a suitable simulator and measure its performance.
SCADA is a level 5 module that will supplement the knowledge and skills you have acquired in OGBP, DBMS and LAN. Its content was designed to enhance further your data acquisition skills which are essential in the oil and gas field and prepare you for level 6 modules such as Data visualization techniques, wireless sensor networks and Technology Project.
You are encouraged to participate in activities, and discussions in the class but you must do the recommended tasks to be able to contribute. For the maximum benefit, you need to follow the tasks for guided study in the weekly guidelines, particularly doing the recommended reading every week.
Wish you the BEST,
The growth of mobile devices is motivating widespread efforts to clone almost any technology developed for desktop computers to mobile devices. This module provides an introduction to the platforms and development tools that are available which can be
used to develop mobile device applications. Students will gain an understanding of the process of creating applications and deploying them to mobile devices while also taking full advantage of the capabilities of the device.
The requirements for high-quality, reliable, predictable software becomes increasingly necessary as its use continues to grow both generally and in mission- or life-critical environments. The Software Quality & Reliability (SQR) module discusses the concepts of software quality, the quality models, standards and the methodologies used in the software industry. The module also describes how these processes fit into the software development process.
The requirements analysis is essential to the creation of quality information systems This module aims to develop the necessary skills for formal requirements engineering: specification of software systems at an abstract level. This module helps students to understand process model, process of eliciting requirements analysis in the construction of software systems and interaction of software engineers with stakeholders in the business process. It will enable students to describe the processes using data flow diagram and universal model language (UML) one of the most commonly used process modeling techniques.
The mission of the Information Systems Management program is to prepare the next generation of technology managers to lead enterprises in innovative ways. Schooled in the inter-disciplinary Majan College Tradition and trained as analytical problem solvers, our graduates will develop and deploy IT to create value for their organizations and society.
Modern oil and the gas industry needs a common Information Technology (IT) reference architecture for use by upstream organizations, system integrators and solution providers. This module aims to develop an understanding of the organizational
Modules and the set-up of a global Oil & Gas company, to analyse oil Industry business processes from upstream, midstream and downstream.
This module aims to provide students with the opportunity to conduct literature research and explore contemporary advances and innovations in various areas of networking. Students will become aware of and conversant in various emerging technologies and
