Learning is supported through the comprehensive caretaking of students by professors and assistant professors/lecturers, and supported by the optimised layout of the university lecturing facilities. Every student is granted a permanent “teaching office sp ace ” for  learning and individual & group work during the second and third terms. These facilities contain state of the art IT equipment and visibility of the lecturing area. Students will also be able to store study material within the classroom at any time. This combination will ensure a unique atmosphere for optimized learning efficiency by facilitating interdisciplinary project work (within PE disciplines and Petroleum Geoscience disciplines) and the ability to communicate with training/internship and other offsite contacts. The complete infrastructure of PE teaching offices will be available as of the summer term in 2016. The first generation of students will be supported through the use of temporary facilities.    Is an internship obligatory?  Yes, an internship during the mast er’s  program is obligatory. Students must complete an internship lasting at least 40 days. During the internship the student must maintain a log book, which s/he must obtain from the secretary of the special department.

The master’s  thesis must be done in one of the following specialist fields:    Drilling Engineering    Petroleum Production Engineering    Reservoir Engineering. Students can propose a master’s  thesis subject to the university or select a subject from an approved list. Students must align their proposed topic and their project work with a field of interest for OMV. Their thesis must be finalised within 6 months. Further requirements regarding the master’s  thesis are available from the MUL institutes for Drilling Engineering, Petroleum & Geothermal Energy Recovery and Reservoir Engineering.    Who will be my supervisor for my thesis?
