Graduates from thisPetroleum and Mining Engineering programme at Polytechnic University of Turinhave a professional level, defined by its typical orientations, that makes them eligible to perform highly technical tasks within oil or mining companies or service companies, which acquire and compile data and develop projects on behalf of the oil and mining companies.


The professional figures that the degree program aims to train are engineers able to operate profitably and immediately in the oil and mining sectors, which are characterized by a high technical and technological level; because of the interdisciplinary approach and the international scale such sectors require specialists to be able to operate in very different social and work environments and to hone their skills in communication and in building relationships.This Master's degree program is held entirely in English

The Petroleum and Mining Engineering programme is offered by the Polytechnic University of Turin.

At the end of the curriculum the petroleum and mining engineers will be able to: 

  • characterize hydrocarbon deposits (oilfields) both in terms of quantity of hydrocarbons in place and in terms of production capacity, and will identify the best oil and/or natural gas production strategies on the basis of technical feasibility, but also economic and environmental sustainability (specialization in Petroleum Engineering
  • characterize ore deposits to estimate reserves and identify the best strategies for mining exploitation not only based on technical feasibility but also on economic and environmental sustainability (specialization in Mining Engineering).

Graduates from this program will possess the knowledge necessary to carry out professional activities in various fields, including contributing to activities such as the technical and economic feasibility study of an exploratory or development project of an oilfield or an ore deposit, the management and definition of development strategies of non-renewable resources, including the design and organization of the facilities and equipment needed for production, the risk analysis and safety management in the prevention and emergency phases.
