Courses Overview

What will I learn?
Petroleum engineers figure out the best way to extract oil and gas from deposits below the Earth is surface. They work closely with other professionals to understand the geological and geophysical characteristics of particular reservoirs, before designing, testing and implementing the most effective and profitable extraction method for that site.
Currently, reservoirs yield only about 30 percent of their oil, so petroleum engineers are needed to develop methods to increase oil and gas production. They are also needed to help develop newly discovered and future offshore gas fields.
Curtin is located in the hub of the oil and gas industry in Australia. We are building a strong reputation for excellence in the sector, with our researchers and academics collaborating closely with industry to develop solutions that enhance resource performance, technology and environmental management.
In this major you will learn how to evaluate, drill and then develop and mine oil and gas reserves. You will examine issues involving fluid flow through reservoirs, basic geology, the role of engineering in oil and gas production, chemical engineering, thermodynamics, hydrocarbon phase behaviour, drilling and well engineering. You will also develop an understanding of global economic trends and corporate profit margins through the study of economics, risk and project management. You will have the opportunity for practical study in fluid and reservoir rock laboratories and geodynamics laboratory work, and you will gain industry exposure through field trips to service company offices and drilling sites.
In your first year you will complete the Engineering Foundation Year (EFY). The EFY builds a solid base of the fundamental concepts common to all areas of engineering. The EFY was developed in partnership with industry to create a curriculum that is reflective of engineering practice.
In your final year of study you will undertake a major research or design project.
You also undertake at least 12 weeks of industrial experience, complete your Senior First Aid Certificate course and an industrial IFAP course on safety, to help you to be career-ready when you graduate.
Professional recognition
Graduates fulfill the stage 1 competencies required by Engineers Australia (E Aust) as the pathway to chartered-engineer status (CPEng).
Career opportunities
This course can help you become a:
Petroleum Engineer
Reservoir engineer
Production/operations engineer
Drilling engineer
Why Petroleum Engineering?
Companies such as Chevron, Woodside, Shell, BHP Biliton, BP and numerous others support the petroleum engineering program at Curtin and provide graduates with employment opportunities during and beyond their studies
Curtin's Department of Petroleum Engineering is the largest petroleum engineering department in Australia and South-East Asia, with 10 full-time teaching staff.
Most teaching staff are professionals from within the industry.
Student membership to the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) is encouraged and this, in conjunction with the Curtin Chapter of the membership, provides you with valuable networking, learning and career development throughout the degree.
You will spend a large amount of time applying the course material to real oil and gas field data.
