Petroleum engineering is key to the functioning of the modern world, providing both energy and materials for industry. Teesside is a major European centre for the chemical and petroleum processing sector making it an ideal location for individuals seeking to study for an MSc with industrial relevance.The MSc in Petroleum Engineering is a programme of lectures and project work, encompassing a wide range of petroleum fundamentals, pertinent to the modern petroleum industry. Project work provides an opportunity for ideas and methods, assimilated through lectures and tutorials, to be applied to real field evaluation and development design problems.The course is applied in nature and has been designed so that on completion, you are technically well prepared for a career in industry.
What you study
For PgDip award you must successfully complete 120 credits of taught modules. For an MSc award you must successfully complete 120 credits of taught modules and a 60-credit master's research project.Students select their masters research projects from titles suggested by either industry or our academic staff, but students may also, with their supervisors agreement, suggest their own titles.
How you learn
The course is delivered using a series of lectures, tutorials and laboratory sessions.
How you are assessed
Assessment varies from module to module. The assessment methodology could include in-course assignments, presentations or formal examinations.
These courses provide specialist education tailored to the requirements of both the upstream and downstream petroleum industry. The relevance of this education combined with careful selection of candidates has encouraged oil and gas companies to target our graduates for recruitment over the years.
The petroleum industry is subject to dramatic changes of fortune over time, with the oil price capable of very rapid rates of change in either direction. Petroleum, however, remains the dominant source of energy, with current world production of oil and gas at record rates. In this environment, companies face increasing technological and commercial challenges to keep their wells flowing and are increasingly dependent on input from petroleum engineers and geoscientists.
It is widely recognised that a steady influx of fresh people and ideas is vital for the longer-term success and stability of an organisation, and it is therefore expected that recruitment will continue, especially for those with motivation and the appropriate qualifications.
