This programme integrates important, current and employer relevant themes and enables you to acquire knowledge and skills across a wide range of appropriate topics for petroleum, oil and gas technology, with an emphasis upon management.
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 over a short period of time, to extended group project work in which teamwork, project management and communication skills are as important as technical proficiency.

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.
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.
