Bachelor Petroleum Engineering (Hons)
Whether we like it or not, global economic growth is highly dependent on the long-term supply of oil and gas, and therefore petroleum engineers play a very important role. Currently, there is a major international shortage of qualified engineers in the petroleum industry and this new course is designed to give you a broad range knowledge of all sectors so you can take advantage of the exciting and highly rewarding career prospects in this area.Petroleum engineers are involved in all the phases of finding (exploration), drilling and extracting the oil from the subsurface reservoirs, through to its transportation to the surface facilities and petroleum refinery, and the distribution. Due to the remote locations of many oil reserves (both onshore and offshore) and the respective oil processing plants, petroleum engineers travel extensively while working with the domestic and multinational oil companies operating all over the world. Petroleum engineers also earn the highest average starting salary amongst graduate engineers (2010 NACE, SPE survey).The subsurface activities of exploration and production represent the upstream sector, wherein petroleum engineers perform the following roles:...
