    Designed in close collaboration with industry, this programme takes a theoretical and a practical approach to ensure it meets the requirements of potential employers.

    The interdisciplinary nature of the MSc makes it suitable for applicants from a wide variety of engineering and scientific backgrounds. It is appropriate for you if you wish to enter, or enhance, a technical career in the petroleum, oil and gas industry.

    This MSc is studied full-time over one year starting in September and comprises two semesters of taught modules followed by an individual research project.

    Research areas

    The School focuses on the application of research to solve real-world problems by taking a multi-disciplinary approach. Specialist research activities in a broad range of chemical engineering topics are currently being undertaken and include: process simulation; energy utilisation; carbon capture and sequestration; oil and gas engineering; heat transfer and fluid dynamics.

    This programme integrates important, current and employer relevant themes and enables students to acquire knowledge and skills across a wide range of appropriate topics for petroleum, oil and gas technology, with an emphasis upon chemical engineering applications.

    This MSc is taught by lectures, practical experiments and design projects, supported by problem classes and tutorials. Laboratory-based work is an important part of the programme and takes a number of forms, from experimental investigation carried out individually in a short period of time, to extended group project work in which teamwork, project management and communication skills are as important as technical proficiency.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.

    Program requirements

    You should have, or expect to obtain, a 2:1 Honours degree (or equivalent) in an engineering or science related subject. Applicants must have studied mathematics at level 4 or higher.International students (language requirements) If your first language is not English, you will be required to provide acceptable evidence of your English language proficiency English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6 IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
