This course contains classical mechanical engineering content, with the main emphasis on structural mechanics and control, fluid mechanics and thermodynamics, energy conservation, engineering design, geology and geophysics, drilling oil and gas wells, oil and gas production engineering and reservoir engineering.
This unique course will enable you to acquire substantial knowledge and understanding of dealing with the complex multi-tasking issues in the process, design and management of the related petro-chemical and mechanical engineering industry.
There is also the choice to complete an appropriate period of industrial experience. Successful completion of an industrial placement year will add 'with Professional Experience' to your degree title. The Engineering Institutions will normally accept this period on industrial placement as appropriate training which will assist you in gaining Chartered status. You can also choose to work abroad or in the European Union through the ERASMUS scheme. You will arrange your placement with our support.
Neither pre-requisite nor co-requisite modules are required at any stage. The credit rating of all modules is 20 unless otherwise stated.
