Overview

Petroleum Systems Engineers develop techniques to efficiently recover oil, gas, and other minerals while reducing environmental impacts using various pollution remediation and greenhouse gas reduction techniques.

The Petroleum Systems Engineering (PSE) undergraduate program teaches evaluation, design, and management of technologies used in evaluating reserves and in oil and gas production and treatment. Advanced computer utilization and automation are integrated into the program.
Graduate with:

  • Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.Sc.) in Petroleum Systems Engineering
  • B.A.Sc. (Co-op) in Petroleum Systems Engineering
  • B.A.Sc. (Internship) in Petroleum Systems Engineering

The EVSE program is fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.

CO-OP PROGRAM

Co-op provides a real-world look at various industries and occupations and presents a means for students to work their way through university.

Students are required to complete four, four-month work terms in the industry, alternating with in-class semesters. They start their first work term midway through their second year. Students achieve a total of 16 months of work experience. The program expands the normal four-year program to five years, with course scheduling structured to accommodate the co-op students’ work terms. This means the school operates year-round, and students typically take spring/summer as well as the traditional fall and winter semesters.

If you are interested in becoming a Co-op student, check to see when and what pre-requisites you need to have completed before becoming a part of the program. Make sure that you are qualified prior to submit an application.

How many work terms will you do?

Four

How much can you earn during a work term?

You could earn from $2400 to $5000 per month or about $12 to $30 per hour. Some employers may also offer a moving allowance.

INTERNSHIP

For students interested in having a single work term, the Internship program enables students to undertake a 12-month or 16-month work term with a single employer toward the end of their academic program.
