Course summary

Why choose this course

There’s a worldwide shortage of qualified engineers in the petroleum-refining systems-engineering industry. Our Petroleum Refining Systems MSc is filling that gap by providing you with the teaching you need to become a qualified and successful engineer.

Our course is taught by experts in the industry, and combines technologies, operations and economics with modelling, simulation, optimisation, and process design and integration, giving you a broad understanding of the industry.

What you will study

Our Petroleum Refining Systems Engineering MSc will equip you with the essential knowledge and skills you’ll need to pursue engineering careers in the oil, gas and petrochemical sectors.

You’ll gain a thorough understanding of oil refining and associated downstream processing technologies, operations and economics; process safety and operations integrity; and methods for the optimal design of process systems. Throughout your studies, you’ll learn about the general economics of the energy sector, oil exploration and production, as well as renewable energy systems.

You’ll also learn more about petroleum refining through our unique work assignments at a virtual oil-refining and chemical company.

Careers and graduate prospects

We offer careers information, advice and guidance to all students whilst studying with us, which is extended to our alumni for three years after leaving the University.

Engineers and scientists are increasingly expected to have skills in information systems engineering and decision-support systems alongside their main technical and/or scientific expertise.

As a graduate of this course, you will be well prepared to help oil, gas and petrochemical companies make important decisions in view of vast amounts of information by executing the right operational technologies and approaches.
