    Course Summary

    The MSc in Petroleum & Gas Engineering offered by the University of Salford is in many ways unique. It is the first of its kind to be offered as an MSc, not an MEng. It is designed to be easily accessible to international students, and to fit around work or family commitments with easy part-time study options. Like MEng courses, though, it offers a pathway towards Chartered Engineer status, and all of the employability such a certification brings.

    You’ll study the transmission and distribution of oil and gas resources, the management and engineering of reservoirs and facilities, the surface and subsurface production of oil and gas products and of course the exploration, drilling and geology of these resources on the practical as well as theoretical levels.

    Successful completion of the course typically allows students to join either the Society of Petroleum Engineers or the Institution of Gas Engineers & Managers, depending on your focus. Either organisation offers a pathway to full Chartered Engineer status.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Course Outline

    This program is typically delivered as an MSc degree over a single year at full time, or at part time in two years. However, you can also take the program as a Post Graduate Diploma (PgDip) in Petroleum & Gas Engineering with the same module load but without the Project or Dissertation requirement. This can be achieved in nine months at full time or 18 months at part time.

     

    Core Modules Include:

    • Distribution, Transmission Systems and Design (single module)
    • Experimental and Measurement Methods (single module)
    • Fundamentals of Natural Gas and Production Systems and Design (single module)
    • Gas Flow and Network Analysis (single module)
    • Geology, Exploration, Drilling and Production (double module)
    • Petroleum Economics and Project Management (double module)

    Project/Dissertation

    Note that award of an MSc degree in Petroleum & Gas Engineering requires successful completion of a Project. This can address nearly any aspect of the natural gas business, and can be based on computational or experiential research.

    Learning & Teaching

    Each module will follow a different pattern of teaching methods depending on the subject matter it addresses and the preferences of the course tutor. Modules will generally include large, formal lecture classes, practical and laboratory sessions, interactive tutorials and skills workshops.

    Modules are assessed individually, based on examinations, laboratory marks and coursework. Note that PgDip level students who score 50% or better on coursework will be offered the opportunity to upgrade to MSc status.

    Career Possiblities

    The University of Salford’s Petroleum & Gas Engineering MSc degree program offers excellent employment prospects. Not only is this a rapidly growing industry which can absorb all of the Master’s level graduates the UK can produce, you’ll benefit from Salford’s excellent reputation in the industry and its close connections with the oil and gas industry in the region. Graduates typically find employment in the Process Engineering, Steel, Petroleum, Gas or Chemical Industries.

    Entry Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 1 year MSc, or a PgDip.

    Applicants must typically have earned a 2:2 UK undergraduate degree or the international equivalent, but other qualifications are also accepted. The full list of accepted qualifications can be found here.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test. An IELTS score of 6.0 overall and no element scoring less than 5.5 would qualify, for example.
