Master of Science Curriculum & Courses

Areas of Study

All petroleum engineering courses can be taken for credit. A grade of B or better must be obtained in all graduate courses. No more than six hours of PETR 6300can appear in a master's degree plan without approval from the graduate dean. The curriculum is organized into 4 core areas that denote the teaching and research concentration of the faculty. The master's degree plan of a petroleum engineering student should include at least one course from each of the five core areas.

All graduate students are required to register for PETR 5121 each long semester unless exempted by the chairperson. The graduate seminar course does not count toward fulfilling degree requirements for the graduate program.
