Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Petroleum) / Bachelor of Science

The University of Adelaide

This program combines the Bachelor of Engineering (Honours) (Petroleum) and the Bachelor of Science, to equip graduates with a multidisciplinary yet complementary skill-set and broad expertise that can be applied to a range of complex challenges. In this program, students study the concepts of petroleum engineering, and undertake a Geology and Geophysics and Applied Geology double major as part of the Science component. The degree builds a strong foundation of mathematics, physics, geology/geophysics, computer applications and engineering. With designated courses from both disciplines counted towards the double degree program, the degree can typically be completed in five years (full-time), compared with seven years if undertaken separately.At the end of the double degree, students graduate with two separate parchments; one for each degree. Combining two areas of study offers graduates not only a more diverse experience at university, but also greater scope of career prospects and a competitive edge in the job market.
