Postgraduate Degree in Petroleum Engineering

*Certificates are issued at the end of training


To provide a very comprehensive, practical knowledge of world-class methods and techniques used in petroleum engineering, and develop competency needed to be fully operational and make very significant contributions in multi-disciplinary project teams.

The petroleum engineering program constantly prepares you to deal with real on-the-job situations. You will conduct numerous case studies based on real data from the field. You will deal with geological objects through practical field trips. You will use industry-specific software.

You can also opt for a partnership program with Louisiana University.
