Drilling and Completion Engineering

In a globalized world, the provision of energy is and will be one of the key challenges for current and future generations. It is of highest importance that the resources we all share, are used economically and efficiently.

The chair of drilling and completion engineering is dedicated to push the envelope in drilling performance and provide solutions to environmental and technical challenges.

The international trend shows a shift towards unconventional and alternative energy sources and the classic usage of oil and gas adopts to a changing environment and heads towards a more sustainable usage of the resources available.

Therefore, in close cooperation with multinational companies, unique research areas and niche projects of high significance to the oil and gas industry are serviced. Furthermore a rich portfolio of international lecturers, students and external advisors provide the know-how and expertise for tackling various projects.
