Course content

Created in response to the worldwide shortage of qualified engineers in the petroleum- refining systems-engineering industry, our programme combines technologies, operations and economics with modelling, simulation, optimisation, and process design and integration.

This programme will equip you with the essential knowledge for engineering careers in the oil, gas and petrochemical sectors.

Upon completion of the programme you will have gained a comprehensive understanding of oil refining and associated downstream processing technologies, operations and economics; process safety and operations integrity; and methods for the optimal design of process systems.

You will learn about the general economics of the energy sector, oil exploration and production, as well as renewable energy systems. Furthermore, your study of the various aspects of petroleum refining will be augmented by unique work assignments at a virtual oil-refining and chemical company.
