The department of Petroleum Engineering at the University of Stavanger is at the forefront of petroleum engineering and geosciences education worldwide. The MSc programme in Petroleum Geosciences Engineering is uniquely focused on the specific needs of exploration and production of the petroleum industry.
The programme has been developed in close collaboration with the oil industry, and qualifies for a broad range of positions within the oil industry, both at operators and in the service sectors.
A graduate of this programme will be able to solve geoscience problems by integrating different types of surface and subsurface data used in the oil industry and to integrate such information with petroleum engineers. In addition, they will be able to formulate strategies and will have the key fundamental knowledge to develop, manage and implement technology in the oil industry.
