Master of Science

The Petroleum Engineering Program has been offered by Politecnico di Torino for over 60 years (it was established in 1959). In time, it has been largely renewed to qualify top students from all over the world for challenging international careers in the oil and gas business.

Today the Petroleum Engineering Program is offered fully in English. The Petroleum Engineering Program offers a MSc course and postgraduate education which reflect current best practices within the Oil and Gas industry on reservoir characterization and modeling, appraisal, reservoir simulation and development, along with integrated reservoir management.

Classes are taught by professors of the Politecnico di Torino, but integrations on more technological aspects are provided by skilled professionals from the petroleum industry. The contribution of visiting professors is another qualifying aspect of the program. 

Because successful identification and exploitation of hydrocarbon reserves require the ability to operate in multi-disciplinary teams, students at all levels are provided with notions in other key subjects which are strictly related to petroleum engineering, such as geology, geophysics, applied mathematics, chemistry, and HSE. Practical projects carried out during the courses on real data and case histories are also an opportunity for practicing with software and for becoming familiar with standards typically used in the petroleum industry.

Program Description

In recent years, the MSc program has grown to include Mining Engineering. While the degree is formally called Petroleum and Mining Engineering, there is a separate program course depending on the career area of interest. While there are several courses that both degree programs share, such as Geology and Risk Analysis, these programs are specific to the career of interest and will challenge students with the current and relevant industry standards.
As always, additional information can be found at regarding the courses offered or to find out more about the separate Mining Engineering portion of this degree program
