What We Do

About Us

The Department of Petroleum Engineering was originated in 2006. Since 2007, the department has evolved and received its first undergraduate students. Currently, various programmes related to oil and gas industry are offered at undergraduate and postgraduate level. As the development of the department continues, we will keep on moving to strengthen our curricula and at the same time explore research areas that contribute significantly to the development of the nation. There are more than 900 students in the department including postgraduate students

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.
