Stream Outline

This stream in Petroleum Engineering is designed to cater for engineering and science graduates and industry personnel who are interested in expanding their knowledge base and improving their technical understanding. It covers both the fundamentals and applications of drilling engineering, reservoir engineering, petroleum technology, business principles and business management.

Stream Structure

Students must complete 36UOC of courses to be eligible for the degree, and must complete the following:

12 UOC Foundational Disciplinary courses

Students must take 12 UOC from postgraduate level PTRL courses as recommended by the program authority, based on work experience and professional background.
  • any level 5 Petroleum Engineering (PTRL) course
  • any level 6 Petroleum Engineering (PTRL) course

18 UOC Disciplinary Knowledge Courses (Core)

6 UOC Advanced Disciplinary Knowledge Courses
With the approval from the Stream Authority, students may be permitted to substitute up to 18 UOC of other postgraduate online courses run by the School of Petroleum Engineering.

The Graduate Certificate can be an entry point for obtaining foundational qualifications in Petroleum Engineering, and for articulating to the Graduate Diploma (and subsequently the Masters degree) subject to having a credit average and no fails. Upon completion of this degree, candidates can articulate to the Petroleum Engineering stream of the Graduate Diploma in Engineering - students articulating are required to complete four additional courses (24UOC) to complete that program.
