Overview

The objectives of the Oil, Gas and Energy Engineering programme at University of Nicosia are to:

  • Provide specialized advanced knowledge and tools to our graduates in order to cope successfully in a technologically challenging environment
  • Facilitate learning in areas of oil, gas and energy engineering that are directly linked to industry and current state-of-the-art technology;
  • Provide the theoretical and computational skills necessary for the solution of both theoretical and practical engineering problems;
  • Provide practical and experimental hands-on experience that allows the students to link directly to fundamental knowledge and theory;
  • Prepare graduates to work alone or in groups in order to provide engineering solutions;
  • Prepare graduates to design/implement systems and processes towards the solution of engineering problems;
  • Promote research, develop research skills and provide fundamental knowledge to support a successful career in research and development.

Career Prospects

This field offers very good career opportunities. Energy consumption grows steadily around the world, and investments in drilling and exploitation of energy resources, in particular gas and oil, are anticipated to continue strong. Thus, the global employment outlook is promising. 

It is further expected that the discovery of oil and gas in the Cyprus Exclusive Economic Zone will prompt the establishment of new companies and operations with an increasing number of job opportunities. 

Graduates of the Master’s program can be employed in a number of sectors including off-shore exploration, product refineries, on-shore liquefying natural gas (LNG) terminal, chemical manufacturing industries and research.

Access to Further Studies

Graduates of the programme have direct access to 3rd cycle studies (PhD), in this or a related field, at the University of Nicosia or other institutions in Cyprus, the EU and the USA/Canada.
