Professional Short Courses / Continuing Education Services


The NCPGG can provide the following Professional Short Courses / Continuing Education Services to Organizations and Individuals in the Petroleum Industry:

 Courses available annually

The Centre invites industry personnel to attend relevant units of the Honours/MSc coursework programme. These units are taught between February and June each year, and range from one to nine days in length, depending on the topic. Each unit is delivered in a modular or short course format to facilitate industry attendance. These units are suitable for recent graduates, or for more experienced staff seeking an introduction to areas in which they currently have little expertise. The course schedule is finalised in early January of each year, and course outlines and a timetable are available from this website. Please contact NCPGG administation for further details.

 Professional short courses suitable for worldwide delivery

 Individually tailored courses

The Centre can custom design a course to meet the training requirements of an industry client. Short courses, covering a broad range of petroleum-related subjects can be presented at client-designated venues within Australia or overseas. Further information can be obtained from NCPGG administation .

 Part-time M.Sc. studies

Suitably qualified candidates may enrol in the M.Sc. programme on a part-time basis, to allow continuing employment whilst studying. These students undertake the same coursework as full-time students, but spread out over a maximum of three years. Exemptions from topics will be granted where a student is assessed as having sufficient knowledge, either as a result of industry experience, or courses undertaken in earlier degree studies. Further information on the M.Sc. programme, course outlines and a course timetable are available from this website, or by contacting the Centre.

 Short courses by visiting lecturers
