PROGRAMME EDUCATIONAL OBJECTIVES
Petroleum engineers travel to where petroleum reservoirs are known to exist. They define and develop the reservoirs, and produce oil and gas with maximum profitable recovery. Petroleum engineering allows one to specialize in several different oil & gas specialties, each with its own unique challenges and
rewards. The careers and job activity areas are as a:
The students, upon completion of their study, should attain the following outcomes:
These modules provide an appropriate platform for a practicing engineer to understand the basic principles of engineering in the areas of Fundamental of Petroleum Engineering, Petroleum Geology, Engineering Materials, Engineering Statics and Dynamics and Engineering Design.
In addition, a thorough grounding in principles of IT and management are provided by the C Programming for Engineers and Management modules. Modules such as Engineering Mathematics and Introduction to Management provide the basic academic skills required to meet the demands of employers. Important and relevant skills for managing activities and for your own independent learning are also introduced.
In addition to the above, all students are also required to successfully complete General Studies modules as stipulated by the Malaysian Qualification Agency, as well as fulfill credit requirements for Co-Curricular Activities.
Here, you start specialising in modules that develop the necessary underlying knowledge and skills in Petroleum Engineering. Further, in-depth Electronic and Mechanical skills are developed here with modules such as Introduction to Electrical System, Strength of Materials, Fluid Mechanics and Thermodynamic & Heat Transfer. Engineering Mathematics is provided for the better understanding of the engineering modules. Specialize Petroleum Engineering modules such as Element of reservoir Rock and Fluid Properties, Formation Evaluation & Well Logging, Reservoir Engineering and Safety in Oil & Gas Engineering are introduced to develop skills necessary for Petroleum engineers. Independent learning continues in all modules.
Specialised knowledge and skills in the areas of Drilling Engineering, Reservoir Engineering, Well Design & Completion, Sustainable Development, Production Engineering, Well Testing, Reservoir Simulation and Numerical Methods & Statistic are a critical focus of this level. There is further development of the ability to apply relevant engineering skills with strong critical thinking and analysis. Independent learning continues in all modules.
Industry placement with a suitable organisation for a minimum period of 12 weeks, after completing Year 3 and before the commencement of Year 4.
The final year Petroleum Engineering modules provide the necessary industry application technological skills which will become very useful for employment upon graduation. These modules include, Field Development Project, Advance Drilling Engineering and Advance Well Testing for off shore and Gas Engineering and Enhanced Oil Recovery for on shore. Your personal and professional development is enhanced by the module in Engineering Project Management and Engineers in Society. You will enhance your technical capability and understand how to innovate, generate and manage the creation of new ideas.
The Investigation module (Project Phase I) and Implementation module (Project Phase II) develops the academic and practical aspects of your chosen areas of study and reinforces your independent learning skills. This is where you will demonstrate higher level critical thinking, analysis and solutions development skills which will enhance your employability.

CAREERS IN PETROLEUM ENGINEERING
Petroleum Engineering is the bridge connecting to the Oil & Gas Industry where engineers have a high level of technical expertise and skill, which they use to plan, design, set up, modify, optimise and monitor the processes in the Oil and Gas industry. Petroleum Engineers are analytical engineers and creative thinkers in solving complex problems. They can practice on their own initiative but also contribute as a team member working with engineers from various disciplines. Responsibilities of a Petroleum engineer include the following:
Typical occupations include working as a drilling engineer, reservoir engineer, production engineer, process engineers or equipment engineer to optimize oil and gas production, Potential employers are oil companies like Petronas, Exxon Mobil, Shell, Murphy Oil, Talisman, Petrofac, Newfield, Hess, Nippon Oil, and oil service companies like Schlumberger, Halliburton, Baker Hughes, M-I Swaco, UMW Drilling, ScomiOiltools, Dimension Bid, Geowell and Eastern Energy.
