Course content

The MSc in Petroleum Engineering programme aims at broadening, strengthening and integrating knowledge and understanding of the oil and gas industry processes. You'll learn the mathematics, science, computer-based methods, design, and engineering practice to solve petroleum engineering problems of varying complexity, taking in consideration the economic, social and environmental context.

You'll gain a detailed knowledge of the integrated model of the oil reservoir, so that you'll be able to predict, maintain and improve oil and gas production processes. You'll benefit from the detailed instruction you receive on a suite of software packages that are used in the oil and gas industries to maximise cost effective production from the field, these include: PETREL, HYSYS, Eclipse, Prosper and GAP.

At the end of the programme you should have obtained a deep and broad knowledge of the integrated model of the oil reservoir in order to predict, improve, maintain and to innovate the processes of oil and gas production.

Modules

Petroleum geoscience
Petro physics
Reservior engineering and simulation

Group project (summer period)
Dissertation (summer period) • This Masters course is accredited by the Energy Institute.

The Energy Institute (EI) is the professional body for the energy industry delivering good practice and professionalism across the depth and breadth of the sector.

• Society of Petroleum Engineers

LSBU gained approval for the creation of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) Student Chapter in March 2007. The interaction with SPE-London allows our students to attend specialised conferences related to the oil industry, and also to have invited speakers from the industry, delivering presentations on relevant topics.

Employability

The complexity of the oil and gas industry offers a wide variety of opportunities for career development to petroleum engineers.

In most oil companies worldwide the petroleum engineering team consists of a geologist, a reservoir engineer, a petro-physicist, a drilling engineer and a production engineer. With this Masters qualification you'll be qualified to apply for positions in all of these fields. Each member of this team will be concentrating on their own aspect of the larger task in hand, which is to maximise cost-effective production from the field.

As a graduate of the MSc in Petroleum Engineering your profile will match the needs in different areas of oil and gas production, and reservoir engineering in large companies, which offer attractive graduate programmes, and in medium and small operating and consulting companies.

LSBU Employability Services

LSBU is committed to supporting you develop your employability and succeed in getting a job after you have graduated. Your qualification will certainly help, but in a competitive market you also need to work on your employability, and on your career search. Our Employability Service will support you in developing your skills, finding a job, interview techniques, work experience or an internship, and will help you assess what you need to do to get the job you want at the end of your course. LSBU offers a comprehensive Employability Service, with a range of initiatives to complement your studies, including:

• Direct engagement from employers who come in to interview and talk to students
• Job Shop and on-campus recruitment agencies to help your job search
• Mentoring and work shadowing schemes.
