Reservoir engineering Students will gain an understanding of the rock and fluid properties of a hydrocarbon reservoir. Petroleum geoscience Concerns the origin, structure and internal geometry of reservoirs and the creation, migration and entrapment of hydrocarbons. Geological models form the basis for reserve estimation and development planning. Drilling engineering Involves a range of engineering disciplines in the design and safe construction of exploration and development wells.

These courses provide specialist education tailored to the requirements of the upstream petroleum industry. The relevance of this education, combined with careful selection of candidates, has encouraged oil and oilfield service companies to target Heriot-Watt for recruitment of graduates since The Petroleum Engineering degree is delivered by the Institute of Petroleum Engineering, a world-leading Institute committed to delivering research and training programmes that meet the needs of the international petroleum industry.

Project work provides an opportunity for ideas and methods, assimilated through lectures and tutorials, to be applied to real field evaluation and development design problems. The courses on this programme are applied in nature and have been specifically designed so that our students are technically well prepared for, and have a sound knowledge of, the industry.

Our students Students on the Petroleum Engineering programme come from a wide variety of backgrounds, including directly from undergraduate degrees such as chemical, mechanical, mining and petroleum engineering as well as geology and applied chemistry.

Others are oil and gas industry professionals looking to broaden their knowledge and extend their technical expertise. Our students come to us from all parts of the world, in the last few years the students in all three MSc programmes within the Institute of Petroleum Engineering have come from over 30 different nations.

Industry links Students on the Petroleum Engineering MSc will benefit from the excellent links with industry and research activities by staff at the Institute of Petroleum Engineering. The Institute also has an industry-based Strategic Advisory Board who monitors activities in the wider context of the needs of the industry and offer guidance on the programme ensuring content is up to date and relevant to current industry needs. Seminar sessions are also conducted by staff from a variety of petroleum engineering companies.

Career opportunities Graduates of our Petroleum Engineering programme are much sought after by oil operating and oilfield service companies both in the UK and worldwide. Graduates go on to work for major global oil and gas operating companies, service companies as well as smaller consultancies in petroleum engineering. The programme also provides an excellent springboard for graduates wishing to pursue a career in research. Programme duration The only significant difference with the on-campus delivery is the design project, which is configured as an individual assignment for distance learning candidates.

Students studying the Petroleum Engineering MSc via Independent Distance Learning are expected to spend study hours per week and should therefore be able to complete the programme within about three years.
