To produce top-notch Petroleum and Mining Engineer, courses from all required branches such as humanities, science, and mathematics have been deliberately included. A good portion of the total courses has been taken from geology so that our products, future Petroleum & Mining engineer, can fathom the jargons and paradigms of geology. Sophisticated simulation work for nationally occupied petroleum reserves has not yet been performed. However, nationally, we have achieved efficiency in on-shore drilling. The department hope one day the future products, Petroleum and Mining Engineer, will get down to offshore drilling and simulation work. A number of field and industrial tours have been incorporated in the curriculum to introduce them with the real life problems and facts.
The Bachelor of Science in Petroleum and Mining Engineering builds a strong foundation of mathematics, physics, geology, geophysics, computer applications and engineering principles.
Over the course of the program, the subjects studied change from more general engineering topics to very specific petroleum and mining engineering-related topics. There is also a focus on management and business-related aspects. This integrated structure makes the petroleum and mining engineering teaching curriculum unique.
The first two years of the academic program are spent developing an understanding of the foundation subjects of petroleum and mining engineering.
In the third and fourth year, these areas of study are further developed through an additional range of advanced petroleum and mining engineering and geosciences topics. Students expand their technical petroleum engineering knowledge and develop business skills such as economic evaluation and project management, and undertake a final year engineering thesis or project.
Masters of petroleum and mining engineering, PhD and Diploma/certificate are under process.
