Master’s (12 to 24 months) and Doctorate (24 to 48 months)

The graduate program in petroleum sciences and engineering has multiple units and is the result of the integration of petroleum engineering (FEM) and reservoir geoengineering (IG). The program is an interdisciplinary one, with an active group of faculty members who promote the creation, dissemination and exchange of scientific and technological knowledge in petroleum exploration and production. During the master’s program, students acquire a strong scientific grounding that enables them to make critical, innovative contributions at the leading edge of the petroleum industry. The doctoral program aims to produce individuals who are qualified to design and coordinate research projects in industry or teaching and research institutions and to develop methodologies, processes and technologies aimed at petroleum exploration and production.
