1 Technion Israel Institute of Technology Masters of Engineering in Energy Engineering Curriculum for a Specialization in Natural Gas & Petroleum Engineering (NG&PE) Introduction The Masters in Engineering (ME) degree, will be granted by the Technion, and administered academically as a specialization within the framework of the Inter- Departmental Committee for Energy studies. Under the Technion's existing rules, the study program will comprise of 40 academic credits, of which 5 credits will be devoted to a final project. In the Technion, an academic credit is typically awarded based on contact hours as follows: for 14 hours of lectures, or for 28 hours of tutorials, or for 42 hours of laboratory/practical classes. Academic credits may also be awarded for extensive homework assignments or for project work. The program, as outlined here, is designed for graduates with a B.Sc. in Engineering (such as Mechanical, Aeronautical, Chemical, Civil, Material and the like). Other candidates will be expected to take prerequisites before being admitted to the regular NG&PE program. The program as envisioned here will admit up to 25 students a year (at least during the first stage), on a full time basis, for 15 months (including the final project). This program is a minimal program and contains few electives. As the program develops, as it attracts more students and as the number of local faculty increases, it would be expected to add courses based on student demand and requirements of regulatory and industrial bodies. The study program proposed herein will be named the Natural Gas & Petroleum Engineering (NG&PE) specialization in the Technion's Master of Engineering in Energy Engineering program and will consist of basic courses in addition to courses from three options: 1. Drilling Engineering 2. Production, Transportation and Storage Engineering; and 3. Reservoir Management The courses which are recommended for each of these options are listed below. Deviation from the recommended lists will be allowed, after being approved by the academic director of the program. The majority of the courses are mandatory and serve as the currently required core of the program. There are 4 elective courses, and the students may have some choice in making up the 35 course-work academic credits.
