MSc in Petroleum, Oil and Gas: Chemical Engineering Technologies

Course Description

Designed in close collaboration with industry, this programme takes a theoretical and a practical approach to ensure it meets the requirements of potential employers.

The interdisciplinary nature of the MSc makes it suitable for applicants from a wide variety of engineering and scientific backgrounds. It is appropriate for you if you wish to enter, or enhance, a technical career in the petroleum, oil and gas industry.

This MSc is studied full-time over one year starting in September and comprises two semesters of taught modules followed by an individual research project.

This programme integrates important, current and employer relevant themes and enables students to acquire knowledge and skills across a wide range of appropriate topics for petroleum, oil and gas technology, with an emphasis upon chemical engineering applications.

This MSc is taught by lectures, practical experiments and design projects, supported by problem classes and tutorials. Laboratory-based work is an important part of the programme and takes a number of forms, from experimental investigation carried out individually in a short period of time, to extended group project work in which teamwork, project management and communication skills are as important as technical proficiency.

Core modules

• Energy Technologies
• Advanced Process Safety and Control
• Industrial Management, Research Skills and Project Planning
• Advanced Process Simulation and Modelling Techniques
• Petroleum and Petrochemical Engineering
• Chemometrics for Engineers
• Petroleum, Oil and Gas: Chemical Engineering Technologies MSc Project

The focus on technology, its applications, uses and refinements, are novel features of this programme.

Our campus is ideally situated in the Humber region, which is home to more than 350 companies involved in the chemical and allied industries including ConocoPhillips, BP Chemicals, Total, Reckitt Benckiser and Smith and Nephew.

As a student on the MSc, you will gain access to some of the best facilities in the UK including the Centre for Assessment of Technical Competency (CATCH). This £8 million centre provides a fantastic opportunity to experience realistic equipment and operating procedures.

We work closely with industry to ensure the standard of our teaching keeps pace with advances in the profession. For this reason, our engineering graduates are highly soughtafter by all employment sectors.

The School’s continued development of chemical engineering-related provision has the support of the chemical and process engineering’s professional body, the IChemE.

Research areas

The School focuses on the application of research to solve real-world problems by taking a multi-disciplinary approach. Specialist research activities in a broad range of chemical engineering topics are currently being undertaken and include: process simulation; energy utilisation; carbon capture and sequestration; oil and gas engineering; heat transfer and fluid dynamics.
