This course provides the knowledge required for a range of professional careers within the oil and gas industry. You will gain an understanding of engineering relevant to upstream oil and gas engineering.
It develops professional levels of skill in key subject areas by building on a foundation of first degree level scientific and mathematical skills. Typical students include new graduates and people working in oil and gas companies, energy companies, national oil companies, engineering firms, and project service companies.
Another related complementary course is our MSc Offshore Oil and Gas Engineering which is aimed at students who wish to work in the Oil and Gas Industry with particular focus on offshore operations such as exploration, drilling and production. An advantage of these two courses is that they are designed to have the same first four stage 1 modules introducing the Oil and Gas industry so that students, having gained more understanding of the industry, can compare the courses and swap between courses during stage 1, as they decide which course they would prefer to follow in stage 2. This flexible approach offers students the advantage of more choice during their study.
You can study for this course full-time at our campus in Aberdeen or online via the university's virtual learning environment CampusMoodle.
