When you think Petroleum Geology, you think Aberdeen. This is the only programme of its kind, that is sitting directly at the heart of the UK oil and gas industry. Running since 1973, the one-year MSc course in Integrated Petroleum Geoscience at the University of Aberdeen, is internationally regarded as one of the top vocational training pathways in the world and one of the most admired and industry relevant Petroleum Geology Masters programmes. The IPG programme is also supported by a number of industry partners, including BP, Equinor and Shell.
Providing world-renowned training in the practical and technical skills required by the global hydrocarbon exploration and production industry. The programme receives detailed input and support from industry, ensuring it remains current and relevant. Graduates from this programme are highly sought after and the training offered is also an ideal springboard into a career based on further research/PhD level.
The programme focuses on all aspects of upstream geoscience, from initial exploration, through field appraisal and development, to maximising recovery from mature and declining fields. Skills in analysing the subsurface are further developed by field work on outcrops and by hands-on experience with core logging. The aim is to provide a full training in integrated Petroleum Geoscience. We aim to prepare students to perform a wide variety of technical functions in a multidisciplinary environment. The training is also valuable as a springboard for those desiring a research career or a PhD. Teaching methods aim to reflect the way industry works, providing students with the teamwork and communication skills required to transition from education to employment.
