Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering - Máster en Ingeniería Mecánica
This course provides you with both a multidisciplinary education and hands-on training in petroleum engineering.
Upon obtaining your master degree, you will be prepared to work as part of the upstream oil and gas industry. Units such as formation evaluation, field development planning and petroleum economics will prepare you to get involved in technical and managerial areas in particular.
Australian & NZ Students
You must have an honour’s level four-year bachelor degree in a relevant engineering discipline from a recognised university. Candidates who work in the upstream oil and gas industry (with considerable exposure to core technical areas such as drilling, production engineering and/or reservoir engineering) may be considered with degrees in other relevant science disciplines on a case-by-case basis.
