    Course Summary

    The University of Regina’s MASc in Petroleum Systems Engineering is a great way to learn advanced techniques to recover oil, gas and mineral resources more completely, more efficiently and / or in a more ecologically sustainable manner. It can include detailed study of pollution remediation and reduced greenhouse gas emissions, for example.    

    Regina’s Petroleum Systems Engineering program offers many ways to further specialise your MASc degree. You could study specialties like EOR (Enhanced Oil Recovery), the VAPEX and SAGD heavy oil recovery processes, Reservoir Simulation and Modelling, Sequestration of Carbon Dioxide in Depleted Hydrocarbon Reservoirs, Fluid Rock Interactions Miscible or Immiscible Displacement, each with its own named Master’s and Doctoral degrees. 

    Note that this is a thesis-based MASc program. If you would like to explore other options, the University of Regina’s Petroleum Systems Engineering program also offers Master of Engineering (MEng) degrees which are project based or co-operative educational in nature. 

    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.

    Learning And Teaching

    The University of Regina relies on many standard teaching methods to convey the content described above. These will almost certainly include formal lectures, interactive tutorials and skills sessions as well as seminar style classes. There will also be a great deal of both laboratory and field work.

    You will also learn skills specific to evaluating oil and gas reserves, drilling and well design, reservoir performance analysis, enhanced oil recovery and reservoir management techniques.

    Career Possibilities

    Many U of R Petroleum Systems Engineering graduates have gone on to a PhD program, though many have gone directly into job market to develop successful careers as well testing engineers, well logging engineers, transportation engineers, stimulation engineers, sales and marketing engineers, reservoir engineers, research engineers, refining engineers, production engineers, process engineers, pipeline engineers, petrophysicists, operations engineers, mud engineers, facilities engineers, exploration engineers, exploitation engineers, drilling engineers and  completions engineers.

    Entry & Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 2 year MASc degree.

    Applicants must typically have completed a 4 year Bachelor’s degree in a relevant subject, or the international equivalent. International applicants should also take the GRE.

    Though French Immersion programs are available, all classes are taught in English unless otherwise noted. International students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test.
