Course content

With the emerging superpowers, China and India, beginning to compete for a larger share of the world’s energy resources, more countries have responded by seeking to develop their own natural resources, intensifying competition and increasing the demand for highly skilled professionals and managers in this rapidly expanding sector of the global economy.

Professionally accredited by the Energy Institute, the leading chartered professional body for the international energy industry, this course has been developed in collaboration with the industry, with input from the likes of SPE International, Cuadrilla Resources Ltd, Petromall Ltd and Subsea Engineering News, who sit on our Industry Advisory Board. Our extensive industry links mean that you could benefit from technical site visits, which have previously included the National Engineering Laboratory, as well as a range of expert guest lectures, such as the former Vice President of British Petroleum.

The longest running of the University’s degrees in the field of oil and gas, it was designed specifically with the aim of building management capacity within the petroleum industry. We’ll show you the complexities of management within the extractive industry and help you to gain a strong understanding of the interconnections between the different value chains within the oil and gas industry, to help to prepare you for a wide range of potential employers, including national and multinational energy companies, consultancies, energy ministries and international agencies.
