Masters in Petroleum & Gas Engineering


Masters in Petroleum & Gas Engineering enables the engineers and scientists to understand exploration, drilling, production and distribution and transmission of oil and gas from practical and theoretical viewpoints. The knowledge and the skills acquired in problem solving in terms of development, design, business and economics management in oil and gas engineering assist in the making management or scientific decisions.

Career Options

Its fact that petroleum engineering is an attractive and high paying career option. Petroleum engineer has to discover natural sources of oil and examine the same. Similarly, developing the latest machines and equipments which can be used in the extraction and processing of oil is part of the job of a petroleum engineer. Petroleum engineers have global career and are hired by global oil companies. Careers for petroleum engineer qualify them to be geologists, geophysicists, or energy economists. It is possible to stay in the industry and become a petroleum land man, drilling engineer, well-log analyst or even a chemical engineer or reservoir engineer.
