Offered Programs:

Undergraduate Program

The department offers a bachelor degree programme in Petroleum Engineering. The curriculum includes the courses in Production Engineering, artificial lift methods, reservoir studies, fluid properties, enhanced oil recovery techniques, well testing, well logging, natural gas transmission, and distribution, rock properties, corrosion control in petroleum industry, petroleum economics, storage problems and many other related subjects. In addition o these strong supports of basic sciences courses at different levels are also offered. Actual field data and related problems are included in the courses to develop field oriented approach to the students. The spread of the course contents is broad enough to groom the graduates for any major area of the petroleum and gas engineering profession. Students are provided opportunities to visit oil and gas fields, transmission and storage stations, and refineries, to familiarize them with the tasks and operations they have to undertake in their professional career.
