Profile of the Programme:
The aims of the MSc distance learning programme in Oil, Gas and Energy Engineering are to:
- Prepare graduates to succeed in a constantly growing, demanding, and highly competitive technological world;
- Provide specialisation and extensive knowledge in the area of oil, gas and energy engineering;
- Create an academic environment conducive to learning new oil, gas and energy engineering concepts and technologies;
- Introduce students to the emerging technologies in the oil & gas sector;
- Foster analytical skills and critical thinking;
- Promote engineering ethics and moral practices.
Oil, Gas and Energy Engineering offers very strong career prospects as it prepares graduates to assume positions in the global oil & gas sector. With energy consumption growing steadily on a global scale, and investments in drilling and exploitation of energy resources, in particular gas and oil, are anticipated to continue strong in the long run. Hence, the global employment outlook appears promising.
The drive for locating and extracting new and existing oil & gas resources offers well paid and rewarding careers in hydrocarbon producing and refining countries. Graduates of the Masters’ programme can be employed by oil field service companies, independent and national oil companies, oil and gas trading firms, contractors, advisory organisations, chemical companies and energy regulators.
Access to Further Studies:
Graduates of the programme can be accepted into Third Cycle degrees (Doctorate Degree)
The student must complete 90 ECTS and all programme requirements.
A minimum cumulative grade point average (CPA) of 2.0 is required. Thus, although a ‘D-‘ is a PASS grade, in order to achieve a CPA of 2.0 an average grade of ‘C’ is required.
Upon successful completion of the programme, the students should be able to:
- Utilise knowledge and understanding of oil and gas science and engineering and apply safety and risk management techniques;
- Diagnose, formulate and solve complex oil, gas and energy engineering problems;
- Design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyse and interpret data;
- Design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints;
- Analyse and assess the economics of the oil and gas industry and the oil and gas energy markets;
- Formulate solutions that meet the desired needs within the economic, manufacturing and sustainability borders;
- Use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice and research;
- Function and communicate effectively in multidisciplinary teams.
