A master’s degree is a specific type of graduate degree that students pursue after completing their bachelor’s work and when they want to have access to more education, better jobs, and higher pay. The degree usually requires an additional year or two of study, research, and possibly some publication. A Master of Science in Petroleum Engineering is particularly appropriate for those students who want to impact the future of global energy.

What is an MSc in Petroleum Engineering? As resources become less accessible and new technology is needed for the extraction of resources, highly prepared professionals will be needed to direct the course of resource management. Students typically study courses in the areas of geology, geophysics, rock mechanics, reservoir engineering, process technology, and natural sciences. The classes in this program prepare students to meet the modern needs of energy consumption, production, and management on a global level.

The benefits to participating in and graduating from an MSc in Petroleum Engineering program include career advancement for professionals, entry into a competitive and exciting field for new graduates, and many career opportunities for all graduates. Graduates from this type of program can expect access to further educational opportunities and jobs with excitement, challenges, and comfortable salaries.

Students can expect a range of cost breakdowns from one school to another, especially as these programs are available on a worldwide scale. Contact individual schools to find the program and tuition rates that are most appropriate for your needs.

Skilled engineers are needed to direct the production of resources, whether from deep-water, arctic condition reserves, or other areas. Graduates should be prepared to overcome technological challenges, meet the growing demand for oil and gas, and replace many of the professionals who are currently working in the petroleum industry. Graduates typically enter careers in the areas of research, production, consultancy, and management. These jobs are often available on international levels.

Those students who want to participate in a career that gives them access to job opportunities across the world, who hope to influence the future, and who enjoy facing challenges should review the database of schools offering an MSc in Petroleum Engineering. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
