Course content

With a broad-ranging Oil and Gas Engineering MSc, you could work across the world in the oil and gas industry.

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) at no extra cost, and the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE), which is currently free for students under 29 years old (additional fees apply for those above this age).

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.

Our currently extensive industry links can 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.

Work placement option

This master's programme provides you with the additional option to apply for a 'work placement' opportunity during your first semester with us. The 'work placement', which if secured, is designed to further develop your skills, knowledge and professional experience with the aim of maximising your employability prospects.
