Course Summary

Overview

Oil and gas play a significant role in today’s global energy market and will continue to do so for many years. Advances in technology to recover these valuable resources require contributions from all branches of science and engineering to ensure best practice, economic survival and protection of the environment. We have developed this course to allow Chemical Engineering graduates to have key skills in petroleum engineering and related subjects. Graduates will be a valuable asset to energy companies developing oil and gas reserves by utilising their awareness of the petroleum industry coupled to the wider base in chemical engineering.

Accreditation

Accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE) on behalf of the Engineering Council for the purposes of fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as an Incorporated Engineer and fully meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered Engineer.

Teaching and Learning

The overall approach in the course to teaching and learning is a student-centred one, which is designed to encourage students to take increasing responsibility for their own learning and development as the course progresses. The main focus is on active learning through experimentation and design.

The requisite competencies related to Subject Mastery are acquired and developed through lectures, tutorials, group work, case studies, design projects and research projects (Stages Three to Five). The practical component of each course reinforces the development of subject-specific skills through a combination of projects, laboratory work, computer-based design packages and applications and industrial visits. The departmental Student Learning Resource Centre supplements relevant reference materials available in the central Library.

Assessment

The assessment policy for the course incorporates a range of assessment types. Formative tests are scheduled during modules to provide feedback on performance and are used to inform further development. Continuous assessment during modules and summative assessment at the conclusion of modules both contribute to the overall assessment and are used to measure achievement in specified learning outcomes formally.
