Course content

The MSc in Petroleum Engineering programme aims at broadening, strengthening and integrating knowledge and understanding of the oil and gas industry processes. You'll learn the mathematics, science, computer-based methods, design, and engineering practice to solve petroleum engineering problems of varying complexity, taking in consideration the economic, social and environmental context.

You'll gain a detailed knowledge of the integrated model of the oil reservoir, so that you'll be able to predict, maintain and improve oil and gas production processes. You'll benefit from the detailed instruction you receive on a suite of software packages that are used in the oil and gas industries to maximize costeffective production from the field, these include: PETREL, HYSYS, Eclipse, Prosper and GAP.

At the end of the programme you should have obtained a deep and broad knowledge of the integrated model of the oil reservoir in order to predict, improve, maintain and to innovate the processes of oil and gas production.

We're top 10 in the UK for both student satisfaction and research intensity in Chemical Engineering (Complete University Guide 2019).
