Petroleum Engineering Department
Petroleum Engineering Department is one of the departments under the Faculty of
Engineering. The department offers one undergraduate programme (BEng
Petroleum Engineering), two postgraduate programmes by taught course: MSc.
Petroleum Engineering and MSc Drilling Engineering and two postgraduate
programmes by research: MSc Petroleum Engineering and PhD in Petroleum
The BEng Petroleum Engineering
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. 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.
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. Also. students will have the opportunity to major in one
of these selected areas:
information helps to promote and create awareness of what the department offers
in terms of academic programmes, attract more applications within the country,
region and world at large, and attract partners to collaborate with us in
various academic, research and consultancy areas in Petroleum Engineering. I
have the honor, therefore
to call upon esteemed readers, potential students, stakeholders and all those
willing to collaborate with us to closely read and disseminate this information
to a wider audience who will be attracted and interested to work closely and
effectively with us.
you and we welcome you to join our efforts!
