Knowledge

  • A Master candidate in petroleum geosciences will have advanced knowledge within the field of petroleum geosciences and specialised insight into a particular area of geosciences.
  • The candidate will have in-depth knowledge of scientific theories and methods connected to the subject area. The candidate will be able to apply knowledge to new areas within the subject area, and analyse professional issues based on the history, tradition, distinct nature and societal importance of the subject area. The candidate can use this fundamental knowledge to develop, manage and implement geoscientific technology within the petroleum sector.

Skills
  • The candidate will be able to analyse existing theories, methods and interpretations within petroleum geosciences, and work independently to solve practical and theoretical problems.
  • The candidate will be able to solve petroleum geoscience problems by integrating different types of data used in the petroleum industry, including surface and subsurface data.
  • The candidate will be able to independently carry out specialised research or development projects within petroleum geosciences under supervision and in line with current ethical norms of research.
  • The candidate will be able to evaluate and solve problems on hydrocarbon exploration and production, from a regional to reservoir scale, by interpreting and integrating geological, geophysical and engineering data.
  • The candidate will be able to optimise results by using state-of-the-art technology in hydrocarbon exploration and production, and decision making.
  • The candidate will be able to manage, develop and implement strategies for hydrocarbon exploration and production.

General knowledge
  • The candidate will be able to analyse relevant professional, research and ethical issues.
  • The candidate will be able to apply her/his own knowledge and skills to new areas to carry out advanced assignments and projects.
  • The candidate will be able to communicate information relating to independent work with other petroleum geoscientists and engineers. The candidate will have an excellent command of the terminology related to the subject area.
  • The candidate will be able to communicate, not just with other geologists, geophysicists and engineers, but also with the general public on professional issues, analyses and conclusions within the subject area, thus contributing to the society with new ideas.
