Petroleum engineering is the field of engineering concerned with the exploration, extraction and storage of petroleum, among other activities. As a profession, a graduate with a Master in Petroleum Engineering can work as a reservoir engineer, drilling engineer, or a production engineer. These professionals work on the interface between the oil wells and oil reservoirs. They ensure that environmental factors, such as flow, silt and undesirable liquids are managed thoroughly and they maintain the equipment used for monitoring operations as well.

A Master in Petroleum Engineering program will explore topics such as production operations, hydraulic fracturing, economics, oil recovery processes, natural gas engineering, and project management among many others. There are a range of options to meet the needs of most students, including full-time and part-time programs in countries around the globe. Prospective students of Master in Petroleum Engineering must possess a formidable command of mathematics and engineering science. They must also bear sound understanding of related sciences, such as geology, economics and geophysics.

The petroleum industry remains as one of the most lucrative in the world today despite increasing pressure to shift away from fossil fuels to renewables. And as such, graduates of the Master in Petroleum Engineering programs have great potential for successful and lucrative careers. Learn more about the programs below!
