About

The Petroleum Engineering (with Advanced Practice) programme, offered by Teesside University, helps you gain knowledge and develop skills with industrial relevance. Petroleum reservoir engineering, well drilling, petroleum chemistry and economics of the oil and gas sector are just some of the topics covered.

Overview

There are three routes you can select from to gain a postgraduate Master’s award:

  • MSc Petroleum Engineering – one year full time
  • MSc Petroleum Engineering – two years part time
  • MSc Petroleum Engineering (with Advanced Practice) two years full time

The MSc Petroleum Engineering (with Advanced Practice) at Teesside University offers you the chance to enhance your qualification by completing an internship, research or study abroad experience in addition to the content of the one-year MSc.

The programme of lectures and project work encompasses a range of petroleum fundamentals, pertinent to the modern petroleum industry. Project work provides an opportunity for ideas and methods, assimilated through lectures and tutorials, to be applied to real field evaluation and development design problems.

Career opportunities

This course provides specialist education tailored to the upstream and downstream petroleum industry. The relevance of this education, combined with our careful selection of candidates, has encouraged oil and gas companies to target our graduates for recruitment over the years.

The petroleum industry is subject to dramatic changes of fortune over time, with the oil price capable of very rapid rates of change in either direction. Petroleum, however, remains the dominant source of energy with current world production of oil and gas at record rates. In this environment, companies face increasing technological and commercial challenges to keep their wells flowing and are increasingly dependent on input from petroleum engineers and geoscientists. 

It is widely recognised that a steady influx of fresh people and ideas is vital for the longer-term success and stability of an organisation. As a result, it is expected that recruitment will continue, especially if you have the motivation and appropriate qualifications.

Accreditation

Our one-year MSc Petroleum Engineering course is accredited by the Energy Institute under licence from the Engineering Council. This means that it meets the requirements for further learning for Chartered Engineer (CEng) under the provisions of UK-SPEC.
