The success of these models requires a good understanding of both the geology and engineering of the reservoir. The REM programme, with its combination of geoscience and engineering, provides students with the ability to identify those aspects of the reservoir which have the greatest impact on hydrocarbon recovery. Graduates typically go on to careers in petroleum geology, geomodelling or reservoir engineering.
The Reservoir Evaluation and Management programme at Heriot-Watt University has been designed so that graduates are technically well prepared for, and have a sound knowledge of, the reservoir geoscience and engineering aspects of the upstream petroleum industry. The unique combination of geoscience and engineering in the REM programme means that our team projects contain the complete workflow of field development, from geology to engineering and economics.
Graduates of the REM MSc will be in a unique position of having a thorough understanding of both the geosciences and engineering issues relevant to hydrocarbon reservoir behavior.
The programme is deliberately intensive, typically consisting of working a full 5 days per week of lectures and practical work, including labs or tutorial exercises designed to teach practical skills in addition to learning theory. The programme includes two field trips to observe geology in the field, both for those with and without prior geological experience.
