The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - Post Graduate -

CURTIN Univer­sity’s Mas­ter of Pe­tro­leum En­gi­neer­ing pro­gramme is a mas­ter’s con­ver­sion course that pro­vides stu­dents with a mul­ti­dis­ci­plinary ed­u­ca­tion in pe­tro­leum en­gi­neer­ing.

The course is tai­lored for en­gi­neers who do not have any for­mal qual­i­fi­ca­tion in pe­tro­leum en­gi­neer­ing but have hon­ours de­grees in rel­e­vant en­gi­neer­ing dis­ci­plines from a recog­nised in­sti­tu­tion.

It is also avail­able to grad­u­ates from other dis­ci­plines who have rel­e­vant work ex­pe­ri­ence in up­stream oil and gas in­dus­try with con­sid­er­able ex­po­sure to core tech­ni­cal ar­eas such as drilling, com­ple­tion and pro­duc­tion en­gi­neer­ing and/or reser­voir en­gi­neer­ing.

At Curtin Univer­sity, Malaysia (Curtin Malaysia), the De­part­ment of Pe­tro­leum En­gi­neer­ing of the Faculty of En­gi­neer­ing and Sci­ence is com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing the oil and gas in­dus­try with qual­ity grad­u­ates.

Curtin Malaysia is the largest in­ter­na­tional cam­pus of Western Aus­tralia’s Curtin Univer­sity. It has more than 4,000 stu­dents from close to 50 coun­tries.

In ad­di­tion to of­fer­ing the same cour­ses and de­grees as its Aus­tralian par­ent, it pro­vides an un­dif­fer­en­ti­ated stu­dent learn­ing ex­pe­ri­ence and Curtin’s strong learn­ing sup­port mech­a­nisms such as on­line re­sources, dis­trib­uted learn­ing sys­tems and ac­cess to i-lec­tures in Perth.

Curtin’s Mas­ter of Pe­tro­leum En­gi­neer­ing is a full-time, 18-month pro­gramme taught over three semesters, with four 25-credit units taught per se­mes­ter.

Stu­dents must com­plete three semesters or 300 cred­its in to­tal to re­ceive the Mas­ter of Pe­tro­leum En­gi­neer­ing award.

Lo­cal stu­dents have the op­tion to study part time for 36 months over six semesters, with two 25-credit units taught per se­mes­ter.

One of the best fea­tures of the pro­gramme is the close in­dus­try links forged with com­pa­nies such as Petronas, Shell, Nip­pon Oil and Tech­nip.

In ad­di­tion, stu­dents can com­plete fully Aus­tralian Curtin de­grees at Curtin Malaysia at around a third of the cost of com­plet­ing the same de­gree in Aus­tralia.

Curtin Malaysia con­tin­ues to cre­ate new learn­ing spaces equipped with the lat­est tech­no­log­i­cal ad­vances in teach­ing and learn­ing to in­crease stu­dent en­gage­ment, fos­ter col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween

The univer­sity’s new four­storey Faculty of En­gi­neer­ing and Sci­ence fa­cil­i­tates the two-way de­liv­ery of ma­te­ri­als be­tween the Curtin cam­puses as it has the ca­pac­ity to build bi-di­rec­tional links in teach­ing and re­search that are the hall­mark of a gen­uine global univer­sity.

Ap­pli­ca­tion for the July in­take of Curtin Malaysia’s Mas­ter of Pe­tro­leum En­gi­neer­ing pro­gramme is in progress.
