Geoscience has always been the centre of all modern natural resource industries, starting from exploration phase, through to their development and production phase. This programme has been designed to provide students with a strong
understanding of geology and geophysics that relate to exploration, petroleum discovery, development and production.
The Bachelor of Technology (Hons) in Petroleum Geoscience degree at Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS emphasises on quantitative geosciences, thus 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 a mix of these three selected areas of interest:
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 as an option is made available to students who are interested to enhance their knowledge in management and business, at their discretion.
To produce technically qualified well-rounded petroleum geoscientist with the potential to become leaders of industry and the nation
In order to graduate with the Bachelor of Petroleum Geoscience with Honours, students are required to obtain a minimum of
139 credit hours. and a minimum CGPA of 2.00/4.00
Bachelor of Petroleum Geosciences with Honours
Choose any of the following sets of Major Elective's areas (set A, B or C) for Major Elective I, II and III.
Petroleum Geoscience students who are interested to enhance their knowledge in management and business will have the option to complete courses offered under Minor. There are six (6) Minor packages available to Petroleum Geoscience 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
139 credit hours.
