Our Petroleum Engineering degree is tailored to meet the needs of the Kurdistan region and the countries in the vicinity. Students in the Petroleum Engineering program receive a solid education in petroleum science and engineering that will serve them well throughout their careers. The Petroleum Engineering program’s curriculum strikes a good balance between theoretical and applied Petroleum Engineering, with enough wiggle room to incorporate the latest state-of-the-art technology and evolving regional demands. The graduates of the program will be able to work for oil & gas companies, service companies and for research institutes, or to pursue their graduate studies. The faculty in the Petroleum Engineering program is dedicated to creating a classroom setting that fosters critical thinking, collaboration, and the development of individual talents.
PE adopted student outcomes that support the PEO’s with a mindset that the attainment of these outcomes prepare graduated to enter the professional practice of petroleum engineering. We outlined our programs with ABET Criterion 3 requirements to have the following student outcomes:
an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
With a degree in Petroleum Engineering, you can work as:
Drilling Engineer: Drilling Engineers Prepare drilling program and performing all aspects of drilling engineering works for the successful, cost effective and safe implementation of drilling activities in all oil and gas companies
Reservoir Engineer: Reservoir Engineers work closely with other technical departments including Geology and Geophysics, to find and extract oil and gas from existing fields as well as searching for potential new development targets. Also works closely with the Commercial department. Mainly employed by Operators or Geoscience Consultancy firms in oil and gas companies.
Production Engineer: Production Engineer’s job involves designing and selecting the equipment that will get the well to produce oil and gas after it is drilled. … Production Engineers work both in an office and out in the field at well sites in oil and gas companies.
Petroleum Engineer: Petroleum Engineer work in petroleum service companies and research centers related to conventional and non-conventional energy resources.
