The Institute of Petroleum Studies was established in 2003 as a bold effort to remedy the skills gap between the theory of the classroom and the practical needs of the oil and gas industry in Nigeria.  The M.Sc. Petroleum Engineering and Project Development Programme is an International Collaborative Graduate Programme between IFP School, France and the University of Port Harcourt, Nigeria and is sponsored by NNPC and TOTAL E & P Nigeria Limited Joint Venture.

The Programme is run in the Institute of Petroleum Studies. The Institute offers full Internet access and virtual library, hands-on training using one computer per student. Students use industry software, case studies and undertake numerous field visits. Students are encouraged to live and work together, thus encouraging the development of team spirit.
