Major advances are being made in renewable energy, but our global dependence on oil and gas looks set to continue for years to come. Our current research in the field investigates the exploration, drilling and extraction of oil, and its transportation to surface separation and petroleum refineries – and when you join us as a postgraduate research degree student, you'll play your part in continuing to turn our expertise into action.
We're busy finding new ways to improve the safety of petroleum production, and the efficiency of hydrocarbon oil and gas recovery too.
Take a closer look at the research we're doing within our Energy and Electronic Engineering area of expertise..
