Master of Science in Petroleum Geosciences Engineering

Geosciences engineers participate in the search for energy resources, mitigating climate change, and developing relevant technologies in order to improve the well being of people and societies worldwide.

The University of Stavanger is at the forefront of studies within the petroleum engineering- and geosciences field. In this study program you will be taught by internationally recognized professors, use state of the art geo-labs and data programs, and participate in enriching field excursions.

The Master program in Petroleum Geosciences Engineering, developed in close collaboration with the petroleum industry, is uniquely focused on the blending of geosciences and engineering for the specific needs of petroleum exploration and production.

As a graduate of this program you will be able to solve geoscientific problems by integrating surface and subsurface data, and exchange and analyse this information together with petroleum engineers. In addition, you will be able to formulate strategies and have the key fundamental knowledge to develop, manage, and implement technologies in the energy sector.

Graduates are qualified to a broad range of positions in the petroleum industry, and in other industries within energy resources where both engineering and geosciences are applied. With a Master degree in Petroleum Geosciences, you can also qualify for the PhD program in Technology and Natural Science at UiS.
