Petroleum Engineering is an engineering filed that involves activities related to exploration and production of hydrocarbons within the upstream sector. The curriculum in Petroleum Engineering is intended to prepare students for the oil and gas industry and other fields which implicate fluid flow from subsurface reservoirs to the surface, design of surface collection and treatment facilities, as well as specific task associate to drilling, production, reservoir engineering and transportation of hydrocarbons to a refinery or pipeline.
The programme stresses the development of strong fundamentals in mathematics, sciences and engineering followed by a thorough coverage of fundamental petroleum engineering courses such as Introduction to Petroleum Engineering, Petroleum Geoscience, Drilling Engineering, Reservoir Engineering, Well Test Analysis and others. Courses in geology provide an understanding of the geological structures and conditions favourable for petroleum deposits. The fundamental courses in Petroleum Engineering which illustrate the application of the engineering principles to the type of problems and solution methods used in the petroleum industry.
In the later years of study, students will have the opportunity to Specialization in one of these selected areas:
Prior to completion of study, students are required to complete various projects ranging from engineering design, field development project (FDP), and individual projects selected from actual oil and gas field data and relevant industrial problems.
