DescriptionHydrocarbons will continue to be the main global energy source for many years to come. Resources will be less accessible, and more advanced technology will be required to extract them. More oil and gas will have to be produced from deep- water or arctic-condition reserves yielding heavy oil or gas hydrates. The need for skilled engineers will increase for many reasons: new technological challenges, increasing demand for oil and gas, and because many petroleum engineers will reach retirement age within the next 5-10 years.
The aim of the Petroleum Engineering programme is to train highly qualified engineers for the petroleum industry. The graduates will work in research, production and/or consultancy within a very international industry–petroleum production.
The MSc programme in Petroleum Engineering is interdisciplinary and includes a number of engineering disciplines. The programme comprises the following areas:
- Geology, Geophysics and Rock Mechanics
- Reservoir Engineering and Process Technology
Career OpportunitiesAs petroleum resources are getting more and more difficult to produce, significant technological advances are required there. Petroleum industry is becoming hungry for young active people with good academic background.
Graduates from the MSc programme in Petroleum Engineering become employed in petroleum companies, first of all in Denmark, but also round the world.
AdmissionTo be admitted to this programme, you must have an academic bachelor degree.
