Petroleum Engineering, MSPE


Return to John A. Swanson School of Engineering Return to: John A. Swanson School of Engineering

The candidate for the degree of non-thesis Master of Science in Petroleum Engineering must demonstrate proficiency in petroleum engineering by passing the following:

Note:


In addition to these 24 credits, the student must satisfactorily complete two other courses from the accepted electives list in order to fulfill the 30 credits required for the MS degree.

Note:


No single course (e.g. Geol 1100) can be used to satisfy both a core requirement and elective requirement.

Students without a BS degree in engineering must take, in addition, either the online “bridging course” offered in Jan (1st class) and May (2nd class) by Michigan State University (See http://www.egr.msu.edu/ for details about the bridging courses CHE 804 and 805) or CHE 0100 (sophomore-level) “Foundations of Chemical Engineering” class offered during the Fall term. Neither of these classes can serve as an elective nor core course substitute in the MS in Petroleum Engineering required classes.
