Accelerated B.S./M.S. in Petroleum Engineering 

The Accelerated B.S./M.S. in Petroleum Engineering program allows undergraduate students the opportunity to pursue a graduate education in petroleum engineering while completing their undergraduate degree. Having already received core instruction through OU's undergraduate studies, the introductory petroleum engineering course requirements that are required of graduate students are not necessary, which allows more time to explore course electives in complimentary disciplines such as geology, geophysics, mechanical engineering, civil engineering and chemical engineering, making students more versatile in their discipline and increasing their marketability.

Please note, MPGE's PE 4033 Oil and Gas Law, unfortunately, cannot be shared between the B.S. and M.S. degrees.

Minimum Admission Requirements

  • Must be an undergraduate in OU’s petroleum engineering program
  • Must have an OU retention and combined GPA of 3.25 or higher



Students should submit the Accelerated Degree Coursework Plan by May 15 of their junior year in the program to MPGE's Graduate Programs Coordinator. The applicant will then need to submit a resume, an official OU transcript, three (3) letters of recommendation, a statement of purpose and their official GRE scores to the Graduate Programs Coordinator no later than September 15.
