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.
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.
In order to graduate with the Bachelor of Petroleum Engineering with Honours, students are required to obtain a minimum of
143 credit hours. and a minimum CGPA of 2.00/4.00
Bachelor of Petroleum Engineering with Honours
Choose any of the following sets of Core Specialisation areas (set A, B, or C) for Core Specialisation I, II and III. Students can choose based on 3+0 or 2+1 concept.
Engineering students who are interested to enhance their knowledge in management and business will have the option to complete courses offered under Minor. There are four Minor packages available to Engineering students as follows:
In order to be eligible for Minor, students are required to pass and complete all the courses under the same package (15 credits). Results obtained from courses under Minor will be counted into GPA/CGPA calculation. Students are reminded that the option to complete Minor courses are at the students' discretion and are
not compulsory. The total credit hours accumulated under Minor courses will be over and above the graduation requirements of
143 credit hours.
