MScPetroleum Geoengineering

Tuition fee €7,000.00 per year
Application fee €150.00 one-time


Crude oil and natural gas are likely to remain the most important energy resources for our century. Therefore, the exploration and development of the hydrocarbon fields need earth science engineers in the long term. The Petroleum Geosengineering master programme builds up on strong earth sciences (geology, geophysics, geoinformatics, hydrogeology) and also petroleum engineering basic skills in the development, production, processing and transportation of hydrocarbons. Students will have an overview of the whole upstream part of the petroleum industry. The program focuses on competencies, skills and methods applied in geology, geophysics, petrophysics and geochemistry as demanded by exploration, field development and production projects. Special attention is paid to the grey area between geology and petroleum engineering, including but not limited to estimation, categorisation and classification of resources and reserves, as well as management of petroleum exploration and production projects. Students receive an integrated background in earth science (geology, geophysics, geoinformatics, hydrogeology) disciplines and also basic skills in the petroleum engineering segment of development and production of hydrocarbons. Since this is one of the most globalised industries in our time, a great advantage is provided if the graduates learn and practice the subjects in English, the generally accepted language of the profession. Miskolc is a well-known centre of education for extractive industries and lies in the heart of traditional mining regions, also close to several gas and oil fields. It has a central position for the countries in the northeastern segment of the Carpathians, i.e. Poland, Slovakia, Ukraine, Romania. This offers a unique opportunity to provide ample choice of field experience, partly in nearby occurrences, partly at cooperating industrial and institutional partners in Hungary and in other countries.
