One of the objectives of the Oil and Gas Engineering programme from University of Nicosia is to provide students the necessary knowledge and technical skills to excel in the oil and gas industry either as operational leaders in the field, technical experts, or researchers.

About

Profile of the Oil and Gas Engineering programme from University of Nicosia:

Other general objectives of the programme are to:

  • Prepare students to become successful professional engineers in the demanding field of oil and gas engineering;
  • Provide students with the fundamental principles of science and engineering in order to cope successfully with the technological challenges of the oil and gas industry;
  • Cultivate analytical skills, problem solving tactics, and critical thinking;
  • Promote engineering ethics, job responsibility, and moral practices;
  • Develop skills for effective communication with co-workers, managers, and the public on topics related to technical concepts, risks, and recommendations.

The specific objectives of the programme are to:

  • Provide fundamental knowledge, analytical skills, and engineering tools to students in order to cope successfully in a technologically challenging environment in the oil and gas industry;
  • Facilitate learning in areas of oil and gas engineering that are directly linked to industry and current state-of-the-art technology;
  • Provide the theoretical and computational skills necessary for the solution of both theoretical and practical engineering problems in the field of oil and gas energy.
Career Prospects:

It is expected that the discovery of oil and gas in the Cyprus Exclusive Economic Zone will prompt the establishment of new companies and operations with an increasing number of job opportunities.

This will result to more science-oriented technical staff who would like to attend an undergraduate program that will turn them into high-level technical/engineering staff for the various operational technologies and processes in the oil and gas fields.

The oil and gas industry offers a variety of careers for graduates of this program to work at its refineries, terminals, chemical plants, or on exploration and production on-shore/off-shore facilities. The following are examples of some of the career options available either off-shore or on-shore:

  • Petroleum Engineer
  • Production Engineer
  • Drilling Engineer
  • Reservoir Engineer
  • Process Engineer
  • Project Engineer
  • Research & Development
Access to Further Studies:
After completion of the BSc programme in Oil & Gas Engineering, graduates may opt to broaden and deepen their academic skills by pursuing post-graduate (masters and doctoral) studies in this or a related field either in Cyprus or abroad.

English Language Requirements

You only need to take one of these language tests:

  • Minimum required score:

    5.5

    The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.

    Take IELTS test
  • Minimum required score:

    513

    The TOEFL – or Test OF English as a Foreign Language – offers a paper-based test (PBT). The final, overall PBT score ranges between 310 and 677, and is based on an average taken from the three test components (listening, structure, and reading). The writing part of this test is scored separately on a scale of 0-6. Read more about TOEFL (PBT).

  • Minimum required score:

    65

    The TOEFL – or Test Of English as a Foreign Language – offers an internet-based test (iBT). The final, overall iBT score ranges between 0 and 120, and includes a scaled average from the four components (reading, listening, speaking, and writing). Read more about TOEFL (iBT).
