1.0 Introduction
Petroleum Engineering involves in the exploration and production activities of petroleum at the upstream end of the energy sector. The curriculum in Petroleum Engineering is intended to prepare students for the petroleum industry and other fields which involve fluid flow through subsurface formations and particularly for those professions which have to do with drilling, production, reservoir engineering and transportation of oil, gas, and other subsurface resources. The programme stresses the development of strong fundamentals in mathematics, sciences and engineering followed by a thorough coverage of fundamental petroleum engineering courses such as Introduction to Petroleum Engineering, Petroleum Geoscience, Drilling Engineering, Reservoir Engineering, Well Test Analysis and others. Courses in geology provide an understanding of the geological structures and conditions favourable for petroleum deposits. The fundamental courses in petroleum engineering which illustrate the application of the engineering principles to the type of problems and solution methods used in the petroleum industry. In the later years of study, students will have the opportunity to major in one of these selected areas:  Reservoir Studies  Drilling Engineering  Production Technology  Materials  Facilities & Plant Engineering  Industrial Environmental Engineering  Process Plant Safety Prior to completion of study, students are required to complete various projects ranging from engineering design, field development plan (FDP), and individual projects selected from actual oil and gas field data and relevant industrial problems.
