MJRH-PTENG v.1 Petroleum Engineering Major (BEng Hons)
This major/stream is part of a larger course. Information is specific to the major/stream, please refer to the course for more information.
Petroleum Engineering involves the production of oil and gas (hydrocarbons) from sub surface reservoirs which requires engineering to bring it to the surface, estimate its value and extract it, in other words, finding oil and gas, drilling and producing it.
Duration and Availability
This major is available to international students studying in Australia on a study visa.
