BPSM is a recognized center of excellence for training and research in the geohistories of sedimentary basins and petroleum systems. The main goal of BPSM is to train the next generation of geoscientists in the latest geochemical, visualization, and quantitative numerical modeling technologies. BPSM was started in 2008 by a group of experienced geoscientists who recognized the growing demand by industry, the service sector, and academia for graduates with expertise in this field. The program is based on a comprehensive curriculum designed to enrich the academic experience of our students.
