Oil and Gas Engineering

MASc

Program Overview

The oil and gas industry is complex and requires expertise in various areas and technical disciplines. To meet this demand, the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science offers a multidisciplinary program in oil and gas engineering (OGE). This course-based program will provide the latest technical knowledge on upstream, production, and downstream aspects of oil and gas engineering. The program will also address serious issues faced by the oil and gas industries, such as sustainable development, environmental protection, risk, reliability and safety. In addition, the program will cover drilling engineering, phase behavior of petroleum fluid, production engineering, compact process equipment design, offshore environmental operations, and natural gas engineering. Many of the courses taught in the program will be supported by field study and laboratory demonstrations. To apply the concepts learned in the classroom and laboratory environments, students will work in teams on an engineering project for two terms.

The program can be completed on a full- or part-time basis. The duration of the full-time program is normally 1 to 2 years.
