MSc Integrated Petroleum Geoscience
The course teaches the skills necessary for hydrocarbon exploration and recovery, so graduates from the course are ready to perform in industry as petroleum geoscientists. In particular, to provide a broad, 'all-round' preparation suitable for a wide-range of employment situations in an increasingly mobile, international and dynamic industry. Developing the knowledge needed to communicate with, and work synergistically alongside, the numerous other engineering and scientific disciplines involved in hydrocarbon recovery is important, especially as the industry is pushing towards small but multi-disciplinary teams to develop and manage its assets.
