Outline

This course is designed for graduates from a four-year Engineering undergraduate degree not accredited by Engineers Australia in a related discipline.

The course is not suitable for graduates of a four-year undergraduate degree, with Engineers Australia accreditation in the same discipline. Those holding an EA accredited qualification and seeking a masters level qualification in the same discipline are encouraged to consider applying for entry to the Master of Philosophy or Master of Engineering Management.

Applicants seeking entry who do not hold a four year Engineering degree are required to first complete the one-year Graduate Diploma in Professional Engineering.

This comprehensive, multidisciplinary course provides technical knowledge and understanding of the exploration, drilling, production and operation of conventional and unconventional oil and gas resources.

Graduates of this course can work as petroleum engineers in the resources industry, service companies and relevant government organisations, including legal and regulatory authorities.

During the course, you will gain at least 12 weeks of exposure to engineering professional practice and keep a formal log book to record your experience. In your final year, you will complete a major research project that will draw upon and integrate the knowledge and skills you attained through the course.

Successfully completing the Graduate Diploma in Petroleum Engineering will make you eligible for entry to the Master of Subsea Engineering.

This major sits within the Master of Professional Engineering degree. To apply for this major, you will apply for the Master of Professional Engineering.
