The MSc in Flow Assurance for Oil and Gas Production is made up of nine compulsory taught modules (eight compulsory and one optional from a selection of three), a group project and an individual research project. 

In addition to management, communication, team work and research skills, each student will attain at least the following outcomes from this degree course:

  • Develop a professional ability to undertake a critical appraisal of technical and/or commercial literature.
  • Demonstrate an ability to manage research studies, and plan and execute projects in the area of oil and gas production technology and flow assurance.
  • Use of the techniques appropriate for the management of a oil and gas production and transport systems.
  • Gain an in-depth understanding of the technical, economic and environmental issues involved in the design and operation of oil and gas production and transport systems.
