Building capabilities, Changing lives.

The Petroleum Engineering program at Universidade Eduardo Mondlane gives students an opportunity to
contribute to a brighter future for Mozambique by developing the knowledge and skills necessary for a
career in the oil and gas industry.  The Petroleum Engineering program is designed for university graduates
with degrees in Engineering and Science.  Prospective students must demonstrate strong math and science
skills and develop English proficiency.


First group of Master's Program 

​Core Program

The Core program is a prerequisite to the Graduate Program.  Students will receive a certificate upon successful completion.  Core courses include:

  • Geoscience for Petroleum Engineers

  • Drilling and Completions Systems

  • Reservoir Engineering and Petrophysics

  • Production Operations and Facilities Engineering

Master's Program

Upon completion of the Core Program, students may apply for enrollment in the Master's Program.

  • Eight courses in Petroleum Engineering

  • Research Project and Dissertation

  • Technical and Professional Seminars


​Why Petroleum Engineering?

Energy is an essential component of a global economy and vital for the world's health and welfare. New oil and natural gas exploration and development projects are on ​​the rise globally with emerging opportunities in Mozambique.Demand for petroleum engineers and professionals in related desciplines, including Engineering and Geoscience, are in growing demand in Mozambique, across the African continent and around the world.

What is a Petroleum Engineer?

Petroleum engineers design and develop methods for producing oil and gas from geologic formations deep below the Earth's surface.  Petroleum engineers also find new ways to safely produce oil and natural gas from older wells that have been producing for decades.

Work Environment

Petroleum engineers work in offices or in research laboratories, as well as spending time at onshore or offshore drilling locations.
