Master of Petroleum Engineering
|Duration||1.5 years full-time|
This course provides you with both a multidisciplinary education and hands-on training in petroleum engineering.
Upon obtaining your master degree, you will be prepared to work as part of the upstream oil and gas industry. Units such as formation evaluation, field development planning and petroleum economics will prepare you to get involved in technical and managerial areas in particular.
Entry requirements for Australian and New Zealand students
Entry into this course is competitive.
You must have an honour’s level four-year bachelor degree in a relevant engineering discipline from a recognised university. Candidates who work in the upstream oil and gas industry (with considerable exposure to core technical areas such as drilling, production engineering and/or reservoir engineering) may be considered with degrees in other relevant science disciplines on a case-by-case basis.
If you successfully complete a Graduate Diploma in Petroleum Engineering from Curtin you may apply to enter the Master of Petroleum Engineering course. You will be eligible to receive credit for recognised learning for all the units successfully completed as a part of the diploma. If you successfully complete a Graduate Diploma in Chemical Engineering from Curtin with a minimum course weighted average (CWA) of 65%; and score no less than 65% in core areas, you may also apply to enter this course.
