This course is designed for engineering graduates who intend to enter or enhance their career prospects in the oil or natural gas industry. It will be re-accredited by the IGEM in 2016.
The course explores the geology, exploration, drilling, production (surface and subsurface), reservoir engineering and management, distribution and transmission of oil and gas from practical and theoretical viewpoints.
• The first course of its kind in the UK
• Enhances your career prospects in the oil and gas industries
• Gives you the opportunity to become a Chartered Engineer

Suitable for engineering graduates or engineers and industrial practitioners who are interested in entering or progressing in the petroleum and gas industries.
You may have a first degree in engineering or a scientific discipline including geology and physics and will be keen to enter the gas or oil industry as an engineer.
You may also already have significant experience of working as an engineer in the gas and oil industry and wish to formalise your current position with an academic and professional qualification.
You will develop the knowledge and the skills for problem solving in terms of development, design, business and economics management in oil and gas engineering which will assist you to make management and scientific decisions in the workplace.
On completion of this course you may be eligible to join the Institution of Gas Engineers & Managers or Society of Petroleum Engineers which may enable you to qualify as a Chartered Engineer.
Teaching will be carried out as formal lectures, laboratories, tutorials and workshops
• Petroleum Economics and Project Management
• Geology, Exploration, Drilling and Production
• Fundamentals of Natural Gas and Production Systems and Design
• Distribution, Transmission Systems and Design
• Gas Flow and Network Analysis
• Experimental and Measurement Methods
Petroleum and Gas Engineering students are required to attend all of the modules. There are seven examination sessions. Students must pass all the modules studied with an overall average of at least 50% in the module programmes and in the course assessed work.
All laboratory and course assessed work must be submitted on time and to the required standard.
Students admitted to the course at Diploma level with examination and coursework of 50 % may proceed to MSc level. (120 Credits)
MSc Students must undertake a dissertation (60 Credits) on any aspect of the natural gas business either experimentally or computationally. The project can frequently relate to research work already in the school and or natural gas engineering and management.
You will be assessed by both coursework 50% and examinations 50%
Due to the relative uniqueness of this course in the UK, together with the high demand of graduates with the types of skills and knowledge that this course offers, employment prospects are excellent.
Graduates can expect to enter or progress in industries such as petroleum, gas, process engineering, chemical or steel.
