Petroleum engineers are more important than ever as global demand for energy and the multitude of every-day products that come from petroleum continues to increase. These engineers help sustain society's way of life, providing oil and gas in an efficient, safe, and environmentally responsible way. The petroleum engineering field is one of the highest paid internationally, and there is significant demand for highly qualified graduates. The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Petroleum) combines courses in petroleum geoscience and management with interactive projects and field trips to provide deep discipline knowledge and transferable business skills. The degree is developed and taught by industry-trained academics through the Australian School of Petroleum-Australia and Southeast Asia's academic centre for petroleum research and education, and the only school of its kind in Australia.


This degree allows students to major as part of their study in a 5 year program. Students are required to complete 6 weeks of approved practical experience.
