Chemical Engineering, Master


Oil and Gas Technology

The Master's program in Oil and Gas Technology is merged with the Master's program in Chemical Engineering and therefore does not accept students from 2020

Insight into the offshore sector

If you choose the specialisation in Oil and Gas Technology at AAU Esbjerg, you work with e.g. geology, process technology and safety, and you gain insight into areas such as:

  • Production of offshore installations
  • Equipment and service
  • Extraction of oil and gas

Moreover, you learn about the development of biofuel from biomass. We can create biofuel in the laboratories within minutes, whereas the development of oil and gas has evolved over millions of years. In terms of onshore, you will be part of projects for development of geothermal facilities.

The aim of the programme is to reach international engineering standards within:

  • Research and development
  • Planning, production and maintenance
  • Exploitation, transportation, and treatment considering economic and environmental aspects as well as health, safety and working environment

In your semester projects, you and your project group will work with relevant issues in relation to oil and gas technology and you are challenged to use all of your knowledge to come up with possible solutions. You are encouraged to occasionally collaborate with external organisations and businesses in your projects to get an idea of the work processes and current issues in the industry. This will prepare you better for your own work life after you graduate and it will provide you with the opportunity to build a professional network.
