Overview

Master of Engineering (Petroleum Engineering)

 

 

 

 

This two-year degree is designed for those students with a Bachelor of Engineering degree wanting to enter the engineering profession.

 

It's enabling them to expand their knowledge and skills in engineering management, acquire an in-depth knowledge of petroleum engineering specialisation.

And gain technical expertise and a basis for international comparability and reciprocal recognition, facilitating the mobility of the engineering graduates.

 

This degree in Petroleum Engineering is offered as a stream within the Master of Engineering program (program code 8621) and enables students to specialise, and gain depth of knowledge across a broad range of areas, including:

 

project management, reservoir engineering, geo-mechanical engineering, and drilling engineering.

 

In addition, as a part of the program, students are required to complete 60 days of Petroleum Engineering related Industrial Training (IT) to become exposed to industry and professional practice.

 

The stream allows students to gain and apply advanced petroleum engineering knowledge through substantial professional development and postgraduate elective choice across a broad range of areas within Petroleum Engineering.

 

Students are able to apply this advanced knowledge and develop their research or independent investigation skills via the compulsory 12 UoC project. This project may be a research or capstone-based project.

 

The Master of Petroleum Engineering provides advanced study in petroleum engineering, with various entry points and pathways of study depending on the student’s background.

Industrial Experience


Students must complete a minimum of 60 days of Industrial Training to graduate. Industrial Training must be undertaken concurrently with enrolment in the program.
