Type of institution: University/Higher Education Institution
This course is comprehensive in nature and provides multidisciplinary education and hands-on training in petroleum engineering. Candidates completing the course are expected to work as fully qualified petroleum engineers requiring minimum supervision in the upstream oil and gas industry. The teaching staff in the Department are professionals with many years of working experience in the oil and gas industry.
This course is made up of 300 credit points, 12 core units in total. The program is organised on a semester modular format with almost 50 per cent of the time spent on applications of the knowledge using real oil and gas field data.
Standard entry requirements
Specifically, applicants require an honours degree or 4-year engineering degree or equivalent in a relevant engineering discipline. Candidates with honours degrees in other disciplines may be considered where they have relevant industrial experience. Additionally, candidates who have passed the Graduate Diploma in Chemical Engineering with a minimum mark of 65% in each unit, and with a pass in Thermodynamics, Fluid Mechanics and Process Heat Transfer as a minimum, will be considered for admission.
