(See www.nmt.edu/~petro for more detailed information.)

The 60-credits requirements should be distributed as follows:

     1. Minimum 30 credits regular* courses and Directed Study (581).

  • Minimum 12 credits of regular* 500-level petroleum engineering courses.
  • Maximum 9 credits of Directed Study (PETR 581); maximum 6 credits from the same professor.
  • Minimum 6 credits from outside of petroleum engineering in either engineering, engineering management, or science disciplines. Students with degrees in disciplines other than Petroleum Engineering may take an additional 6 credits of petroleum engineering courses instead.

     2. Minimum 24 credits and maximum 30 credits of Dissertation (PETR 595).

     3. Registration in Graduate Seminar (PETR 570) is required.

* Courses are considered regular only if a course title and scheduled meeting time are specified and the course is open to all qualified students.
