The Master of Engineering is a flexible postgraduate degree delivered by the University of New South Wales Engineering, Australia’s leading engineering faculty. It's designed for students who require an accredited engineering qualification.
You’ll gain the accreditation required for a career in petroleum engineering, the oil and gas industry and other related sectors. While studying this degree you’ll explore a broad range of areas in petroleum engineering including:
- Project management
- Reservoir engineering
- Geophysics, Geomechanics, Geothermal engineering
- Drilling engineering
Petroleum engineers explore, design, develop and produce the oil and gas resources that underpin the energy and materials industries. Our Master of Engineering - Petroleum Engineering graduates open their opportunities to pursue roles that require the direct application of petroleum engineering knowledge.
While renewable energy sources are growing in popularity, the need for Petroleum Engineers continues, with BP - one of the industry’s largest companies - stating that the need to find and produce oil is still steady. Growth in energy consumption is predicted across the globe and with this comes the need for Petroleum Engineers to find and harness this widely used source of energy.
Our graduates have gained employment with some of the world’s and Australia’s largest companies in the industry, including:
- AGL Energy
- Saudi Aramco
- Field Development Geology
- Well Drilling Equipment and Operations
- Petroleum Geophysics
- Reservoir Engineering
- Process Engineering in the Petroleum Industry
- Principles of Programming
- Petroleum Production Economics
- Natural Gas Engineering
