Student Quotes

“I decided to study at the College of Engineering as it is a highly reputable engineering department.

My favourite memories of the course are the practical aspects and the lab work. Group projects have given me the opportunity to work in a team to overcome engineering-based problems. Studying at the College of Engineering has given me a good knowledge of engineering principles and has helped me to apply this to real life problems.

As part of my time here, I took part in the IAESTE programme. I worked with the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Manipal, Southern India, on a development project involving an irrigation system.

My future plan is to get some experience in an engineering firm, and hopefully, this experience will allow me to work abroad for an NGO on further development projects."

The MSc in Reservoir Evaluation and Management (REM) is a unique combination of Reservoir Geoscience and Reservoir Engineering centred around the individual reservoir rather than the wider regional geology (which is covered in our sister programme MSc Petroleum Geoscience). The REM masters degree focuses on equipping students with the skills and knowledge they need to develop predictive models of the reservoir.

Most development decisions in oil companies are based on the predictions of computer models of the subsurface. The Reservoir Evaluation and Management MSc teaches students the most effective ways to combine the geology, geophysics and reservoir engineering disciplines in order to develop and run computer models which provide the most robust predictions.

More information about the MSc is available in Heriot-Watt's online prospectus:
http://www.postgraduate.hw.ac.uk/prog/msc-reservoir-evaluation-and-management/

About the programme

The main objective of the MSc programme is to provide a thorough training in aspects of reservoir geology, geophysics and engineering related to the appraisal and development of subsurface hydrocarbon resources.

The programme is deliberately intensive, typically consisting of working a full 5 days per week of lectures and practical work, including labs or tutorial exercises designed to teach practical work, in addition to learning theory. The programme also includes two field trips to observe geology in the field for those with and without prior geological experience.

The most challenging and fulfilling aspect of the Reservoir Evaluation and Management programme is the project skills, particularly the team project, where students are tasked to propose a development plan for a real field. The project integrates all the learning in reservoir geosciences and engineering disciplines and reinforces the learning through team work.

Topics covered:
=============
• Reservoir concepts
• Reservoir sedimentology
• Rock mechanics, geomechanics and geophysics
• Formation evaluation
• Well testing and production logging

Overview

Oil and gas remains one of our major energy resources and the recovery of these resources is increasingly important, just as it was in the last century. What has changed with time is the need to recover more of the reservoir, operating in harsher environments both physically and economically. Equally there are challenges due to changes in knowledge and the relative lack of experience from engineers in the market. Traditionally in the UK, the vast majority of engineers entering the industry do so through two routes; first as facilities or surface engineers - chemical and process, mechanical and electrical engineering working on the processing systems to stabilise fluid from the reservoir. The second route is through the petroleum engineering or sub-surface engineering route which sees engineers develop knowledge and skills necessary to locate, drill and extract oil and gas reserves.

This programme (See http://www.postgraduate.hw.ac.uk/prog/msc-oilandgas-technology/ ) was been designed with the help of the industry to provide a cross over between surface and sub-surface engineering functions with the intent that future oil and gas operations can be better optimised to enhance recovery of the reserves. In order to maximise recovery, surface engineers in an operating company must communicate effectively with the reservoir and production engineers within their own company as well as develop relationships with and assess the work of contractors and vendors when designing and constructing facilities. Therefore, surface engineers need to be competent not only in the areas of process design, pipeline engineering, but also be familiar with reservoir engineering, production technology and a variety of other engineering and management subjects, such as safety and control, management of projects, economics and planning, etc.

The programme contains 8 taught courses covering key topics in surface and sub-surface engineering. Two projects towards the end of the programme provide opportunities for participants to demonstrate their knowledge in the design of a surface facility, and to study a specific topic of interest.

Scholarships available

We have a number of fully funded Scottish Funding Council (SFC) scholarships available for students resident in Scotland applying for Oil and Gas Technology. Find out more about this scholarship and how to apply http://www.hw.ac.uk/student-life/scholarships/postgraduate-funded-places.htm .

Programme content

For the MSc and PGDip degrees, students are required to take eight taught courses. MSc students then complete the programme by undertaking two 30 credit projects.

English language requirements

If you are not from a UKBA recognised English speaking country, we will need to see evidence of your English language ability. If your first degree was taught in English a letter from them confirming this will be sufficient. Otherwise the minimum requirement for English language is IELTS 6.5 or equivalent, with a minimum of 5.5 in each skill.

The University offers a range English language courses (See http://www.hw.ac.uk/study/english.htm ) to help you meet the English language requirement prior to starting your masters programme:
- 14 weeks English (for IELTS of 5.5 with no more than one skill at 4.5);
- 10 weeks English (for IELTS of 5.5 with minimum of 5.0 in all skills);
- 6 weeks English (for IELTS 5.5 with minimum of 5.5 in reading & writing and minimum of 5.0 in speaking & listening)
- 3 weeks English refreshers course (for students who meet the English condition for the MSc but wish to refresh their English skills prior to starting).

Mission and goals

Energy Engineering is the branch of engineering concerned with the design and the management of energy plants and their components in order to ensure the best use of the available resources with the minimum environmental impact. Energy plants are systems in which energy forms are transformed and utilized. To name a few examples: large thermal power stations, air-conditioning and climate control equipment for residences and offices, vehicle engines, airplane propellers, solar panels etc.
The Master of Science in Energy Engineering prepares professionals to design, select and use the main technologies in energy transformation, to actively follow scientific improvements and to operate effectively in a competitive and multi-disciplinary industrial context, characterized by significant environmental, regulatory and safety constraints. Students will analyze broad themes as well as specific subjects for which both a rigorous methodological approach to thermodynamics and an open attitude towards related interdisciplinary topics are required.

See the website http://www.polinternational.polimi.it/educational-offer/laurea-magistrale-equivalent-to-master-of-science-programmes/energy-engineering/energy-engineering-track/

Professional opportunities

Graduates can find employment in several sectors: in the technical area of designing, testing, running, and maintaining the energy systems, like heating and cooling systems, thermal power and hydro-electric power plants, engines, oil and gas fields; in the energy management area; and in utilities and public boards that supply energy as electricity and natural gas.
