First Master's in Petroleum Engineering
"Since December 21, 2015, the Faculty of Engineering of the Eduardo Mondlane University (UEM)
and the country in general have their first four
of Science (MSc) in Petroleum Engineering, integrally trained in Mozambique.
Constantino Wilson Nassel, a holder of a degree in Chemical Engineering, was Mozambique's first to successfully
complete the program master's degree in Petroleum Engineering at oldest institution of higher education in Mozambique upon
defending the dissertation
Optimizing recovery potential of gas fields through reservoir life cycle.
Constantino Wilson Nassel First Master in Petroleum Engineering
Other candidates who defended their dissertations on the same day are António Monteiro da Costa Nobre, Alberto Luis
Bila and Óscar José Nhabanga.
The Faculty of Engineering graduated 7 more masters in April 2016.

MSc in Petroleum Engineering run by the Faculty of Engineering of the Eduardo
Mondlane University is an academic master's
comprising eight core subjects,
research and technical seminars, and a dissertation as a way of completion of the
program. The contents of the master's
program focuses primarily on four basic areas, viz. geosciences, drilling systems, reservoir engineering and production engineering. The structure and materials of the program
content were configured like other masters degrees in Petroleum Engineering at
renown institutions in other parts of the World. Thus, graduates have a sufficiently high professional level to compete with graduates of other reputable universities
Master's program working language is solely English
, in accordance with some international standards for this training
level. Besides Mozambican doctorates,
participated in lecturing of course subjects, renowned teachers from
various American universities (Colorado School of Mines, Houston, Texas A
& M, Texas Tech, Penn State, Tulsa)
took part in lecturing subjects. The Master's
program is preceded by a one-year preparatory program for applicants who do not have previous
training in oil matters. The graduate program in Petroleum Engineering
at EMU started in 2013 under the sponsorship of Anadarko and partners.
