This comprehensive course will provide you with a multidisciplinary education and hands-on training in petroleum engineering. You will cover a wide variety of subjects central to the petroleum engineering field, including applied geology and geophysics, drilling and reservoir engineering, hydrocarbon phase behaviour, formation evaluation, petroleum economics and project management.
In your final semester you will complete an individual research project and develop a thesis under the guidance of one of our highly experienced staff.
To assist your studies, we will provide you with access to top of the range computer hardware and software, and the Society of Petroleum Engineers’ online information library.
Students may apply for student membership of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (U.S). Upon graduation you may apply for active membership of the society.
There is a strong demand for qualified petroleum engineers in the oil and gas industry, both within Australia and internationally. Our graduates have found work as fully qualified petroleum engineers in the upstream oil and gas industry.
