Petroleum Geosciences Engineering - Master of Science Degree Programme

The Master’s programme in Petroleum Geosciences Engineering educates petroleum geoscientists with the theoretical and technical knowledge required in oil and gas exploration and production. The study program is research-based and provides a foundation for a lifelong career.
The programme prepares students for multinational offshore and onshore industrial companies affiliated to the oil and gas sector, service industry and government agencies. The master degree also gives students the possibility to continue with PhD studies.The study programme is a post-graduate programme that runs over four semesters and covers 120 ECTS, resulting in a Master degree in Petroleum Geosciences Engineering.
The programme consists of a total of 120 ECTS. The programme includes 90 ECTS from elective courses related to geosciences, engineering and decision making in connection to petroleum exploration and production. The master’s thesis constitutes 30 ECTS and is a large, independent project completed in the final semester, often in close cooperation with an external company. All teaching is in English. This is an advantage for students planning to work in an international environment where English is the language of business.
Students will encounter a variety of working and teaching methods, the use of modern computer technology, practical laboratory work, and projects with associated training in writing and presentations.
A description of each course is provided, detailing:
  • Working and teaching methods
  • Course literature
  • Evaluation methods
  • Assessment methods
  • Learning outcomes

UiS has emphasis on offering all study programmes as planned, but it reserves the right to make changes subject to capacity and the number of students. Adjustments in the content and structure of study programnes can be expected due to societal and technological changes over time.
