Course content

Want to work across the world in the oil and gas industry? This broad-ranging Oil and Gas Engineering MSc could help you get there.

This comprehensive course has been designed and delivered in collaboration with highly experienced oil and gas professionals and enables you to become student members of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) and Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IME).

It aims to equip you with the advanced sector-specific knowledge and skills required to succeed in the competitive, ever-evolving energy industry. You will study the engineering theory, technology, systems and practice associated with the full oil and gas life-cycle, examining upstream, midstream and downstream operations from exploration and production, right through to refining and marketing.

Coventry is ranked as the 2nd best university in the country for ‘Mechanical Engineering’ in the Guardian University Guide 2018. Our extensive industry links enable you to 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.
