About Petroleum Geoscience and Engineering

Petroleum Geoscience and Engineering is the science about how we can find and extract oil- and gas resources in the best environmental and financial way.

Petroleum activity accounts for almost half of Norway's value creation, and it will continue to do so for many years to come. Oil and gas will be the dominating energy carrier for 100 years ahead. 

Norway is one of the countries leading the technological development in the petroleum industry. Cars, airplanes and industry will also in the future depend on a stable and large production of oil and gas. With an education in Petroleum Geoscience and Engineering, you are guaranteed a sought after qualification. 

The oil industry is an industry with large fluctuations. For Norway to continue to be a pioneer, we must be innovative and a driving force for this industry to be as environmentally and sustainable as possible. Therefore, it will be a need for many clever heads in the future.    

You can choose one of the following main profiles:

  • Drilling Engineering
  • Petroleum Geophysics
  • Petroleum Geology
  • Petroleum Production
  • Reservoir Engineering and Petrophysics
