MSc Petroleum Engineering

The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining - IOM3

‌MSc Petroleum Engineering is a one-year, full-time programme, designed to train professionals in the work-flow concepts now prevailing in the oil and gas industries. The MSc Petroleum Engineering programme is accredited by the UK Engineering Council so that graduates with appropriate first degrees and relevant professional experience  qualify for the CEng (Chartered Engineer) designation. The UK CEng in turn has reciprocal standing in Europe and as such engineers are entitled to use the EUR ING designation. The course begins in late September, and leads to award of a Master of Science (MSc) degree and to the Diploma of Imperial College (DIC).
