Summary

The MSc Petroleum Engineering programme is designed with industry support and also includes the study of petroleum geology to produce world-class petroleum engineers, who are fully prepared to take up roles in the upstream oil and gas industry. This programme delivers the necessary knowledge and skills required for an integrated study and evaluation of a prospect, leading to a viable oil and gas field development plan.

Drawing upon a long established track record of excellence in teaching and research, the MSc Petroleum Engineering is delivered jointly by the School of Engineering and the Department of Geology and Petroleum Geology along with industry-based tutors covering a broad range of courses including the fundamentals of petroleum geoscience, enhanced oil recovery, reservoir simulation and well and production engineering. There is also a particular focus on formation evaluation and reservoir engineering and simulation. The MSc Petroleum Engineering develops your skills so you are able to appraise and select the appropriate technologies for safe production recovery of hydrocarbon oil and gas and includes hands-on experience of using industry standard simulation software in all aspects of petroleum engineering.

Aberdeen is known as the Energy Capital of Europe. The city and surrounding area is a major international centre of research and innovation in every aspect of the offshore oil and gas industry. Approximately 900 energy-related companies are located in Aberdeen, including world leaders such as Baker Hughes (a GE Company), BP, Chevron, Haliburton, Maersk, Petrofac, Repsol Sinopec Resources. Royal Dutch Shell, Schlumberger, Total and Wood.

The University’s location at the heart of the oil and gas industry means that our degree programmes benefit from direct industry involvement, including industry advisory panels, guest lectures, field trips, site visits, networking and careers events, and industry supported student projects.
