OIL & GAS ENGINEERING
Oil & Gas Engineering is a field of engineering concerned with the activities related to the production of hydrocarbons, which can be either crude oil or natural gas.
Exploration and manufacturing activities are the oil and gas industry's two main disciplines: they focus on maximizing economic recovery of hydrocarbons from subsurface reservoirs and on their processing, distribution and transportation.
The world will always need energy. Oil & gas engineers must answer the call to find innovative technologies and new resources to meet the increasing demands for energy: they will also lead the way into the future and will have the opportunity to truly make a difference. This is an exciting and unique time to join the industry.
The lessons, whose key feature is the multi-disciplinarity, may be followed completely online (through our e-learning platform and with the assistance of qualified professors/tutors) or blended, in collaboration with the universities and the courses are also recognized by personnel/certification bodies: the university, designated in agreement with the candidate, will issue the title upon completion of the course of study.
Oil & gas engineers locate, recover, and maintain the world's oil and gas supplies; first of all they are the innovators who use cutting-edge technology to create new methods of discovering and drilling for oil.
Besides, as industrial specialist, Oil & Gas engineers work directly for pressure systems manufacturers, petrochemical corporations, materials processors, large construction contractors, large industrial product consumers or the wholesale distributors that service these industries.
Our programs in Oil & Gas Engineering aim at giving a thorough analysis and understanding of problems, challenges and solutions associated with all parts of the supply chains dealing with the oil and gas industry, on-shore as well as off-shore: petroleum fundamentals and exploration, reservoir characterisation, reservoir engineering and simulation, well engineering, purchasing, production planning, design of pressure systems, unconventional resources, inventory management and downstream distribution planning, energy economics management and risk analysis.
Along with knowledge of a broad range of logistics topics, the programs give an understanding of the energy situation in the world comparing existing renewable energy sources, as well as non-renewable sources both in terms of costs, qualities and availability.
For the admission to the university programs, from the Certificate to the Bachelor's level, applicants must fulfill the following requirements:
- have a high school diploma
- have a cumulative GPA of 3.0
For the Certificate level, in the event of no possession of a high school diploma, the student, with already 5 years past high school age experience, has to attend a bridging coursework to test him out on, for example, science and literary skills and to confirm he has the competency to apply under the adult program.
In many cases those who are 23 years old are exempted from having to attend high school diploma exams: in this case the universities add a remark on the transcript that the person has completed a bridging coursework equivalent to high school.
From the Diploma to the Bachelor's level, in the event of no possession of a high school diploma, the student must have a Certificate in the same field of the course chosen for the admission to the Diploma program or a Diploma in the same field of the course chosen for the admission to the Associate degree's program or an Associate degree's in the same field of the course chosen for the admission to the Bachelor's degree program.
Admission requirements established by the university to Master's level programs must be a Bachelor's/Master’s degree related to the course chosen, issued by an institution approved by an appropriately accredited agency internationally recognized or an educational institution approved by an equivalent authority.
The number of courses to be attended for the Master's Degree beyond the Bachelor's Degree/Master’s degree are different according to the area of study (subjects as, for example, individual research project, group project for the on-site courses, in relation to the course chosen, can be added).
The universities may accept a maximum of 6 courses in transfer towards the Master's degree for Bachelor’s courses, completed at an institution approved by an appropriately accredited agency internationally recognized or an educational institution approved by an equivalent authority.
Admission requirements established by the university to Doctorate level programs must be a Master’s degree related to the course chosen, issued by an institution approved by an appropriately accredited agency internationally recognized or an educational institution approved by an equivalent authority.
The number of courses to be attended for the Doctorate are different according to the area of research (they may be based on an extensive research work related to the discovery or introduction of findings due to extensive research works in a particular area).
The recognition of prior learning (RPL) for the programs from the Certificate to the Bachelor's level is based on a combination of high school GPA, completion of specific high school courses, list of learning and training activities attended, general and technical knowledge, work experience related and coherent to the course chosen; for a specific Master's degree program, the recognition of prior learning (RPL) is based on a combination of completion of specific Bachelor's/Master’s degree programs, list of learning and training activities attended, general and technical knowledge, work experience related and coherent to the course chosen.
For information such as, for example, registration procedures, admission requirements, recognition of university credits, please contact us at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or skype: talk to us, even to know the schedule of classroom courses.
The candidate must submit in advance, together with the information request, the CV in order to verify if there are the requirements for registration.
In addition, candidates who had gained experience arising from previous studies, also not concluded, and professional activities, can ask for evaluation of university credits.
Any request or communication must be forwarded directly to our email address: email@example.com.
Once this phase is complete, the program will be prepared, as well as the related costs and application forms (the form of the university and the general one of the services of International Studies Ltd), which will then be transmitted to the candidate.
Distance training offers the opportunity to follow lessons easily from home with one’s own times and methods in addition to quality teaching services and support of a professor/tutor.
