  • Computer Engineering

    Computer Engineering is a discipline that draws heavily the topics from electronic engineering and computer science. The Computer Engineering Programme provides an outstanding, cutting-edge education in electronics and computer system with emphasis on hardware and software.​​

  • Petroleum

The programme is to prepare students for the petroleum industry particularly in dealing with drilling, production, reservoir engineering and transportation of oil gas and other subsurface resources. Upon completion, the student will be equipped with the knowledge on the exploration and production activities of petroleum at the upstream end of the energy sector.​

  • Petroleum Geoscience

This programme has been designed to provide students with a strong understanding of geology and geophysics that relate to petroleum discovery, exploration and production.

It emphasises on quantitative geosciences, requiring strong fundamentals in mathematics and physics, followed by a thorough coverage of basic geology courses such as Physical Geology, Minerology and Petrology, Structural Geology, Stratigraphy and Palaeontology, and Geological Field Mapping.  At higher levels, students are exposed to more petroleum geoscience related courses such as Clastic and Carbonate Sedimentology, Geochemistry, Seismic Acquisition and Processing, Seismic Interpretation, Formation Evaluation, and Seismic Imaging.

In the final year, students have the opportunity to major in one of these two selected areas of interest:

    • Basin and Reservoir Studies
    • Exploration Geophysics

Students acquire the ability to communicate with a diverse array of people and will have an understanding of the geological and technological complexity of the petroleum systems with which they are working. Student may opt for a Minor in Management, an option made available to students who are interested to enhance their knowledge in management and business, at their discretion.​
