The University of Cyprus, through its leading MSc on Natural Gas in Energy Transition programme, offers the opportunity to successful candidates to further their studies in the hydrocarbon field, with a view to claiming a place in the Hydrocarbon and Energy industries. The program was established in 2013, is academically administrated by the Hydrocarbon Committee and the actual degree is awarded by the Engineering School of the University of Cyprus.
The programme admits candidates with a reputable background in Engineering and Sciences. The MSc in Petroleum Engineering is designed to equip its graduates with the essential technical foundations/ knowledge for pursuing opportunities in the Hydrocarbon and Energy Industries. MSc Natural Gas in Energy Transition graduates will be suitable candidates for employment mainly within the upstream and mid-stream sectors of the Oil and Gas industries. The program offers up to 15 student places every year.
A student who follows the scheduled program will be able to complete the relevant coursework and the final project in 12 months (from September to August).
The programme is designed to be complete on the subjects based on core courses. Courses are subject to changes in line with technological advancements, industry trends/demands, as well as the requirements of regulatory and administrative bodies. Emphasis is given in every course to include instructors who are experts in their field, with long track record/experience in the Oil and Gas industry. In addition, students benefit from a rich learning environment, inspired by motivated professionals working in the sector with extensive, diverse and practical experiences and knowledge.
The main objective of the Master in Natural Gas in Energy Transition programme is to build and accelerate the development of national workforces for recruitment by the local authorities, national subsidiaries and international operating companies in the upstream oil and gas industry. The programme will address, in particular, the growing needs of deep-water exploration and development that have raised the complexity of technical challenges in geosciences and hydrocarbon engineering and have increased the difficulty of hydrocarbon exploitation. Knowing that the development of competencies and key capabilities in energy engineering remains the biggest hurdle in workforce management in the energy industry, this program provides the first step which is education in the relevant subjects.
The study programme proposed herein will be named Master in Natural Gas in Energy Transition (will taught only in English) and will focus on the needs of the upstream and mid-stream oil and gas industry
If the candidates do not fulfil the above criteria the Engineering School reserves the right to admit fewer students than the announced positions.
