Program description

Petroleum Refining Systems Engineering MSc

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.

Admission requirements

A minimum of a 2:1 UK honours degree in either Chemistry, Engineering or Physics, or a recognised equivalent international qualification. We'll also consider relevant work experience if you don't meet these requirements.

English language requirements

  • IELTS Academic: 6.5 overall with 6.0 in Writing and 5.5 in each other element.

If you do not currently meet the level required for your programs, intensive pre-sessional English language courses, designed to take you to the level of English ability and skill required for your studies.
