Petroleum and Mechanical Engineering - University of Salford

**Renewable energy is on the rise, yet carbon sources remain the most valuable. With the oil and gas industry’s future in the hands of data analysis and new techniques, a degree in Petroleum and Mechanical Engineering with Salford can lead you to a career keeping vital resources in supply.** Mechanical engineers are an important part of our society, designing, maintaining and developing the systems that shape everyday life. Through our unique, triple-accredited course, you’ll acquire a comprehensive engineering skillset refined to deliver the complex tasksthat steer process, design and management in the petroleum industry. A gateway to professional Chartered Engineer status, our course combines essential mechanical engineering content with dynamic petroleum specialisms. Accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE), the Institution of Gas Engineers and Managers (IGEM), and the Energy Institute (EI), you’ll be educated to the highest professional and industry standards. You’ll get hands-on experience in our new petroleum and combustion engineering facility, featuring advanced laser equipment and a Spray Lab. Learning takes place at our Peel Park campus, minutes from central Manchester. Following a three-year modular programme, you’ll study structural mechanics and control, thermodynamics and geophysics, learning about the chemistry and geology behind production. You’ll progress to explore specialisms including drilling, reservoir engineering, finite element analysis, and industry economics and management. Salford has strong industry connections and we advocate real-world learning. You can take a placement year to apply what you’ve learnt and develop further skills, adding ‘with professional experience’ to your final degree award. With a global shortage of specialist oil and gas engineers, there are great opportunities to join course alumni at Shell, BP and British Gas. **Features** - Build a systematic understanding and critical awareness of the gas properties and physical and chemical equilibria - Develop skills in handling thermodynamic concepts enabling the definition and analysis of thermodynamic systems - Study the interactive nature of petroleum engineering design, including business and commercial influences. - Understand the production and operations relating to oil and gas engineering, including artificial lift technology and designs, reservoir engineering and drilling - Build competence in analysing the value of information as you deliver projects, work independently, and develop effective communication skills
