The Petroleum Engineering program seeks to graduate petroleum engineers who use their knowledge and ability to design and construct sustainable petroleum engineering systems, which serve the needs of society and adhere to professional, ethical, and environmental standards. Graduates will understand and be able to apply current knowledge of engineering, environmental, and legal issues to advance sustainable engineering practices.
The curriculum shares three basic tenants: scientific and technological excellence, balance between theory and practice, and a commitment to self-maintained and enduring personal and professional development. Petroleum engineering graduates are naturally committed to life-long learning and are problem-solvers ready to deal with any technological challenge at local, regional and/or international scales.
The graduates of the petroleum engineering program should be able to:
