Overview

Introduction

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.

Courses in geology provide an understanding of the geological structures and conditions favourable for petroleum deposits. The fundamental courses in Petroleum Engineering programme from Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS which illustrate the application of the engineering principles to the type of problems and solution methods used in the petroleum industry.

Programme Outcomes

  • Apply knowledge of mathematics, natural science, engineering fundamentals and engineering specialisation to the solution of complex Petroleum Engineering problems.
  • Identify, formulate, conduct research literature and analyse complex Petroleum Engineering problems reaching substantiated conclusions using first principles of mathematics, natural sciences and engineering sciences.
  • Design solutions for complex Petroleum Engineering problems and design systems, components or processes that meet specified needs with appropriate consideration for public health and safety, cultural, societal, and environmental considerations.
  • Conduct investigation of complex Petroleum Engineering problems using research-based knowledge and research methods including design of experiments, analysis and interpretation of data, and synthesis of information to provide valid conclusions.
  • Select and apply appropriate techniques, resources, and modern engineering and IT tools, including prediction and modelling, to evaluate complex Petroleum Engineering problems, with an understanding of the limitations.
  • Apply reasoning informed by contextual knowledge to assess societal, health, safety, legal and cultural issues and the consequent responsibilities relevant to professional engineering practice and solutions to complex Petroleum Engineering problems.
  • Evaluate sustainability and impact of professional engineering work in the solutions of complex Petroleum Engineering problems in societal and environmental contexts.
  • Apply ethical principles and commit to professional ethics and responsibilities and norms of engineering practice.
  • Function effectively as an individual, and as a member or leader in diverse teams and in multi-disciplinary settings.
  • Communicate effectively on complex Petroleum Engineering activities with the engineering community and society.
  • Apply knowledge of Petroleum Engineering management principles and Petroleum economic decision making in one's own work, as a member and leader in a team, to manage projects in multidisciplinary environments.
  • Recognise the need for, and have the preparation and ability to engage in independent and life-long learning in the broadest context of technological change.
