Masters degrees in Gas Engineering equip postgraduates with the skills to develop and maintain systems engineering techniques involved with the production, distribution and use of gasses.
Taught MSc courses are typical for the field, though research-based MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Civil Engineering or Environmental Studies.
Gasses are a huge part of the developed world: they provide us with energy for fuel, electricity, and our water supply. As such, the development of advanced technological systems is essential for the modern population.
With this in mind, you will analyse all aspects of the Gas Engineering industry, from systems engineering to financial planning, sustainability, organisation and development of the sector. You maywill also explore concepts such as environmental impact, including practices which impacteffect issues such as global warming.
Depending on your interests, you may wish to focus your studies on an industrial practice, such as off-shore gas engineering or onshore fracking.
Careers include frontline systems management, manufacture and mining, procurement and logistics management, as well as public policy and legislation.
