University supplying the course
Our course is provided by British or international universities with which International Studies Ltd is in partnership. These universities are fully accredited and listed in the IAU WHED, (World Higher Education Database) portal, that is a service provided by the International Association of Universities (IAU) partner of UNESCO, and they are also recognized by various certification and personnel qualification bodies. Moreover, there is also the opportunity for the students to join our "Dual Degree programme", with additional costs, to achieve another degree at the end of their study issued by a fully international accredited university.
The Meaning of Oil & Gas Engineering
Oil & Gas Engineering is a field of engineering concerned with the activities related to the production of hydrocarbons, which can be either crude oil or natural gas. Exploration and manufacturing activities are the oil and gas industry's two main disciplines: they focus on maximizing economic recovery of hydrocarbons from subsurface reservoirs and on their processing, distribution and transportation.
The Skills of Oil & Gas Engineers
Oil & gas engineers locate, recover, and maintain the world's oil and gas supplies. First of all they are the innovators who use cutting-edge technology to create new methods of discovering and drilling for oil. Besides, as industrial specialist, oil & gas engineers work directly for pressure systems manufacturers, petrochemical corporations, materials processors, large construction contractors, large industrial product consumers or the wholesale distributors that service these industries. Although there are various job descriptions, oil & gas engineers all serve one function-to provide the world with energy, while safeguarding the environment for future generations.
The Workplace of Oil & Gas Engineers
Oil & gas engineers often work on offshore drilling platforms, in oil fields and reserves and in distributing plants around the world. Some of the duties include recording and updating information on all drilling and processing activities, ensuring compliance with laws and regulations, determining the most productive locations, taking responsibility for safety and efficiency, ensuring well maintenance, interpreting results, ensuring efficient well flow, overlooking the removal of all waste and equipment from drill sites, designing pressure systems for the storage and distribution of oil and gas.
Most careers involve a combination of office-based and advanced, computer-oriented technology work. Plus, oil & gas engineers typically have numerous opportunities to travel across the globe for a variety of work-related projects. The world will always need energy. Oil & gas engineers must answer the call to find innovative technologies and new resources to meet the increasing demands for energy: they will also lead the way into the future and will have the opportunity to truly make a difference. This is an exciting and unique time to join the industry.
Our Study Plan in Oil & Gas Engineering
This university programme in Oil & Gas Engineering aims at giving a thorough analysis and understanding of problems, challenges and solutions associated with all parts of the supply chains dealing with the oil and gas industry, on-shore as well as off-shore: petroleum fundamentals and exploration, reservoir characterisation, reservoir engineering and simulation, well engineering, purchasing, production planning, design of pressure systems, unconventional resources, inventory management and downstream distribution planning, energy economics management and risk analysis. Along with knowledge of a broad range of logistics topics, the programme gives an understanding of the energy situation in the world comparing existing renewable energy sources, as well as non-renewable sources both in terms of costs, qualities and availability.
The candidates will use a mixture of lectures, tutorials, laboratory sessions and project work and in addition, they spend significant time in our laboratories, as well as in private study directed by lecturers.
This course can be supplied completely online or in blended mode (online and classroom) in London.
£ 7,750 (study supplied in partnership with a fully accredited British or North American university, study material, tutoring and use of classroom facilities included).
For the course supplied in partnership with an international university, the fees will be £ 6,950.
We are pleased to inform you that we can provide partial or full scholarship on the basis of your previous study and related grade.
Please send us a transcript of your RPL for a free evaluation.
If for any reason not attributable to us (double warranty) the university chosen by the student does not issue the degree at the successful end of the course of study, WE WILL SUGGEST ANOTHER UNIVERSITY OR WE REFUND THE WHOLE AMOUNT paid by the student without any penalty.
