Course content

You can learn how to safely manage projects in this rigorously reviewed industry, by studying a Petroleum and Environmental Technology MSc.

This course aims to develop a comprehensive understanding of the technical operation of the petroleum industry, together with some of the sector’s most important environmental issues – such as oil spillages, climate change and renewable energies. You can also obtain a NEBOSH (National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health) accredited Managing Safely Certificate/ NEBOSH International Technical Certificate in Oil and Gas Operational Safety in addition to your degree.

Course content has been developed in collaboration with our Industry Liaison Panel, which includes long-standing members of the Society of Petroleum Engineers. Our extensive links enable us to offer an exciting programme of expert speakers through the oil and gas seminar series, which has previously featured the former Vice President of BP (Engineering), Honorary Guests from Imperial College London and a former President of SPE International. Our connections have also led to the donation by Schlumberger of industry standard PETREL and ECLIPSE reservoir simulation software, worth US$15 million, giving you access to the same technology used by big multinational oil companies like Shell, BP and ExxonMobil.
