Overview

Through this combined degree program students can combine the concepts of petroleum engineering with science The petroleum program integrates core petroleum engineering with geosciences and management and builds a strong foundation of mathematics, physics, geology, geophysics, computer applications and engineering principles. In addition to engineering studies, students undertake courses in geology, geophysics and applied geology.

Students are also required to complete 12 weeks of approved practical experience during their study. Graduates of the program qualify for professional membership of Engineers Australia.
The Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Petroleum) / Bachelor of Science is an AQF Level 8 qualification with a standard full-time duration of 5 years.

Academic Program Rules for Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Petroleum) / Bachelor of Science

There shall be a Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Petroleum) / Bachelor of Science.
