This program is not currently offered to commencing students.

This degree fills a clear gap in the educational and training needs of the upstream (exploration and production) petroleum industry. It is primarily aimed at petro-technical professionals (e.g. geoscientists or engineers) who are currently working in, or who hope to work in, the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry (e.g. with operator companies, service companies, national oil companies, etc). It is designed to equip candidates with the key skills and knowledge required for project and asset management positions. A second target group is candidates (either within exploration and production companies, or external to them) who desire to understand the tools and processes used to evaluate and manage hydrocarbon projects or assets.

This degree is not an MBA for petroleum and is thus not designed to fully equip people for senior, general management positions in the industry - although it may be an excellent first step. It is not suitable for people who do not already have basic, relevant upstream petro-technical education or experience.

The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
