This MSc programme is suitable for engineering, mathematics, and physical sciences graduates who wish to design and conduct structural and hydrodynamic analyses for offshore engineering of fixed and floating structures. It will provide students with an understanding of maritime robotics for oceanography, offshore exploitation, and disaster response. No prior specialised knowledge of the discipline is required and an introductory module called Fundamentals of Ship Science is provided in the programme.
Compulsory modules: Fundamentals of Ship Science; MSc Research Project; Marine Law and Management; Finite Element Analysis in Solid Mechanics; Marine Safety and Environmental Engineering; Offshore Engineering and Analysis; Marine Structures in Fluids; Maritime Robotics
Optional modules: Applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics; Thermofluid Engineering for Low Carbon Energy; Advances in Ship Resistance and Propulsion; Design Search and Optimisation; Marine Hydrodynamics; Marine Structures; Renewable Energy from Environmental Flows; Ship Manoeuvring and Control
This is a flexible online programme which offers you a variety of study options to gain your MSc in Petroleum Engineering from as little as 36 months to a maximum of 72 months to complete with 10-12 hours of study per week on average. You can study this programme from anywhere in the world and it offers the same academic rigour you would expect if you were studying on campus at University of Aberdeen but you can fit it around a busy life, work, other responsibilities and much more.
If have an engineering, science or mathematics degree and you are considering work in the oil and gas industry worldwide Petroleum Engineering can provide you with a wide range of knowledge and skills within the upstream oil and gas extraction area. The programme mainly focuses on the skills you need to extract oil which can be the initial geoscience knowledge through to core analysis and reservoir engineering. Within reservoir and well engineering there are several areas of analysis, testing and development you then specialise in. This ensures you have a very robust approach to offshore production with the type of advanced skills to problem solve and troubleshoot different situations.
The programme also develops your skills in formation evaluation, simulation, and appraisal plus safe production and enhancing the recovery of hydrocarbon oil and gas. This programme is highly regarded in the industry internationally and it is recognised by all major players in the oil and gas industry. Careers can be anything from Drilling, Operations, Piping Specification, Production, Reservoir, Subsurface and Wellhead Engineer. The degree hold accreditation from the Energy Institute and Institute of Mechanical Engineers
