Petroleum engineering is the field of engineering that deals with the exploration, extraction, production, and management of oil and natural gas resources.
Petroleum engineers are responsible for
- production of hydrocarbon resources from oil and gas reservoirs while ensuring environmental sustainability
- designing optimal drilling, completion, production, and reservoir management methods to maximize efficiency and minimize environmental impact
- developing oil and gas fields, improving production, and managing hydrocarbon resources
- leading the design and management of new developments in the energy sector
Master of Science in Petroleum Engineering is designed to provide students with a scientific background in hydrocarbon exploration, reservoir management, productions, and skills in the practical aspects of petroleum engineering. This program aims at training engineering professionals who can design, operate and manage petroleum operations as well as developing research skills and knowledge to provide support to the oil and gas industry to have sound, safe, and sustainable petroleum operations.
