MSc Oil and Gas Engineering

Course Description


The oil and gas industry is continuously developing and is therefore both recognised and expected to remain as a major contributor to the economy of many developed and developing regions as it continues to be driven not only by new oil and gas discoveries, but by a constant demand to find newer, safer, more efficient and cost-effective ways of extracting resources. Whilst exploration continues to identify major oil and gas finds across the world, these are increasingly less accessible and require complex engineering solutions to deliver effective operations and supply. Additionally, the significant and rising operating costs of existing installations are driving the sector to seek suitably qualified engineers are able to support operations and initiate improvements within the four main strands of oil and gas facilities: offshore, onshore, sub-sea and pipelines.


This course aims to equip you with sector specific oil and gas engineering, technology and operational skills to succeed in this competitive environment. It will provide you with specialist education in oil and gas engineering and equip you with the theoretical and practical knowledge and skills required by the industry to solve and manage oil and gas engineering problems and complexities and to optimise existing processes to deliver increased efficiencies.

The global nature of the industry offers significant scope for graduates to have an incredibly varied career spanning international borders. This course is designed to allow you to develop the knowledge and skills for a wide range of professional opportunities in national and multinational oil and gas companies and consultancies.


A wide range of subjects are available, giving you a multidisciplinary approach to oil and gas engineering.
