Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering - Máster en Ingeniería Mecánica
This comprehensive course will provide you with a multidisciplinary education and hands-on training in petroleum engineering. You will cover a wide variety of subjects central to the petroleum engineering field, including applied geology and geophysics, drilling and reservoir engineering, hydrocarbon phase behaviour, formation evaluation, petroleum economics and project management.
In your final semester you will complete an individual research project and develop a thesis under the guidance of one of our highly experienced staff.
Australian & NZ Students
You must have an honour’s level four-year bachelor degree with excellent academic standing preferably in a petroleum engineering discipline from a recognised university. You must also demonstrate considerable research experience in areas relevant to upstream petroleum engineering.
If you successfully complete a Master of Petroleum Engineering from Curtin with higher academic standing, you may apply for the Master of Engineering Science in Petroleum Engineering and receive credit for recognised learning for all common units (subjects studied in the first 18 months are the same for both master degrees).
