Petroleum Engineering Department Graduate Admissions

The Masters in Petroleum Engineering curriculum assumes strong undergraduate academic preparation in math, science, and a B.S. in Petroleum Engineering. In addition to candidates with an undergraduate degree in Petroleum Engineering, bachelor degree holders in other engineering disciplines are encouraged to apply. While all prospective applicants will be given careful consideration, historically the most competitive applicants have had academic preparation as an engineer. Our program admission is very competitive.

Note:  If an applicant's bachelor’s degree is outside of the field of engineering, we recommend the student consider application for the B.S. in Petroleum Engineering.  The academic preparation in math, science and petroleum engineering in the B.S. degree is optimal for success in the graduate program. The Masters in Petroleum Engineering curriculum assumes high competency in those areas, as verified by past successful students.
