Course description

A degree in Petroleum Engineering leads to exciting careers in the oil and gas industry, including reservoir, production and drilling engineering, which offer the scope to work across the world, in technically challenging and financially rewarding jobs.  University of Manchester graduates have a very high employability record, and the course is recognised as a leading programme by international oil companies.

Those students who choose to study for an MEng progress in Year 4 to a programme that both enhances their capacity as individual learners, and deepens their understanding of Petroleum Engineering.  Students in Year 4 undertake mandatory modules in Communication skills and fieldwork, as well as masters-level options in advanced petrophysics, reservoir engineering and petroleum technology.  Half of the credits in year four are allocated to an individual research project, which is designed in collaboration with academics in both Earth Science and Chemical Engineering.
