What is the focus of this Oil and Gas degree...?
The oil and gas industry is every changing, sometimes volatile, and ever more digital. To unlock the potential within new oil and gas energy resources, the energy sector of today and the future, will require highly skilled engineers that are training with the latest research knowledge and expertise.
The masters degree focuses on the design of oil and natural gas structures, where students will gain a sound understanding and in-depth knowledge of oil and gas industry structural designs, fabrication and installation technologies.
Access to £15m of equipment facilities
In addition to access to £15m of specialised research equipment through TWI Innovation Network, students will enjoy:
- Dedicated teaching spaces
- On‑site high performance computing facility to run complex numerical simulation to support their experimental work
- Sports facilities
- Access to all buildings at Brunel University London campus connected with the course

A network environment and collaborative ethos
Being based within industry gives mechanical engineering degrees of this nature an excellent opportunity to flourish.
With MSc students working together on applied research for real engineering projects, the learning experience is greatly enhanced, focusing new skills and knowledge towards what industry is calling for now.
Oil and Gas UK
The United Kingdom has a long history connected with oil technology courses and oil field degrees. In Scotland, oil production courses are mostly based out of Aberdeen. Thanks to our partners at Brunel University, NSIRC has been able to bring important degrees for oil and gas industry to TWI in Cambridge.
Being based in NSIRC at TWI allows masters students to conduct research the heart of a global centre for oil and gas technology research.
TWI has been an import research partner to the UK and International energy companies since the 1950s. Today it counts as client's companies such as BP, Total, Chevron, Subsea and many more. In 2019, TWI partnered with the Saudi Aramco Technologies Company and ADNOC, to form the Non-metallic Innovation Centre (NIC).
Generous scholarships are available for Home, EU and International students, thanks to Brunel College of Engineering and TWI.
