Want to work across the world in the oil and gas industry? This broad-ranging Oil and Gas Engineering MSc could help you get there.
This comprehensive course has been designed and delivered in collaboration with highly experienced oil and gas professionals and enables you to become student members of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) and Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IME).
The course will prepare you for a global career as a graduate engineer in the oil and gas industry, furnishing you with a solid foundation in fluid flow systems, oil and gas production engineering and process control, based on international environmental operational frameworks.
Why choose this course?
The oil and gas industry is continuously developing; the reservoirs from which oil and gas can be extracted have become more complex and the production and processing conditions have become more challenging in the Gulf of Mexico, Brazil, China, Australia and Africa, as well as the UK’s North Sea. In 2015, capital investment in the UK offshore oil and gas industry was £11.6 billion and the industry spent £8.2 billion operating its assets.
Expected to remain as a major contributor to the economy of many developed and developing regions, the oil and gas industry continues to be driven not only by new discoveries, but also by a constant demand to find newer, safer, more efficient and cost-effective methods of extracting and processing the resources.
International experience opportunities
Our strong relationship with industrial collaborators provides students with access to a wide range of national and international workshops and conferences run by the many professional bodies.
We encourage you to take advantage of these opportunities to build your technical capacity, establish networks and meet potential collaborators and employers.
Recently, our students have attended the International Petroleum Conference and Exhibition in the United Arab Emirates, the Artificial Lift Conference and Exhibition in North America, the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Intelligent Energy Conference here in the UK and the SPE International Conference and Exhibition on Health, Safety, Security, Environment and Social Responsibility in Norway.
This course has been developed with industry experts, such as Statoil Process Engineers. The course is aimed to provide you with technical capability, alongside analytical and creative skills to have a successful career in the oil and gas industry.
Throughout the course, you will find yourself working on current oilfield and industry-based problems, providing you with the opportunity to gain additional skills and experience. The course will keep you up-to-date with current events and the latest, leading-edge industry innovations through opportunities to visit facilities and hear from leading industry figures. These visits are a great way to interact with oilfield experts and network with potential employers. Recent trips have included the National Engineering Laboratory.
