Oil and Gas Artificial Intelligence(English)

Program Introduction

The Master's Program in Oil and Gas Artificial Intelligence aims to train international students. The program is based on the first-class disciplines of Geological Resources and Geological Engineering, as well as Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering, with an interdisciplinary focus on Oil and Gas Artificial Intelligence. Through coursework, comprehensive practical projects, or thesis research, the program aims to cultivate students who possess scientific research, technological development, engineering design and construction, and engineering planning and management capabilities in fields such as petroleum and natural gas exploration and development, geothermal and other emerging energy extraction, in-situ conversion and utilization of underground energy and minerals, carbon dioxide capture and utilization, and underground energy storage.

Training Directions:
(1)Intelligent Petroleum Engineering
(2)Intelligent Exploration Engineering

Training Mode and Duration:
The training mode and duration of this program are divided into two types:
(1)Course-based:The course-based master's program has a duration of 12 months, with a maximum study period of 15 months. In the first autumn and spring semesters after enrollment, students will participate in unified course learning. During the summer short semester, under the guidance of a supervisor, students will undertake comprehensive project practice. After the
completion of the practice, they will submit a practice report and participate in the defense organized by the university. Within the prescribed study period, students who fulfill the requirements of the training plan, achieve satisfactory results in coursework, and complete the comprehensive project practice will be awarded a graduation certificate.

(2)Thesis-based:The thesis-based master's program has a duration of 24 months, with a maximum study period of 36 months. In the first year, students will participate in unified course learning in the autumn and spring semesters. At the end of the first year, students who meet the requirements of the training plan can apply to switch to the thesis-based program. Before the end of the first year's spring semester, students will select a supervisor, determine the topic for their thesis, and enter the research stage. The thesis research, from proposal defense to final defense, should not be less than 6 months. Within the prescribed study period, students who pass the thesis evaluation and defense can apply for a master's degree. Upon approval by the faculty committee and the university degree committee, they will be awarded a master's degree certificate and a graduation certificate.
