American University of Ras Al Khaimah
Bachelor of Science in Petroleum Engineering
Energy is a key component in modern civilization. Since the drilling of the first commercial oil well in 1858, petroleum engineers and geoscientists engineers have supplied the world with the number one source of energy – crude oil and natural gas. Economic and environmentally safe production of petroleum resources requires the creative application of a wide spectrum of knowledge, including:
- Basic sciences: mathematics, physics, chemistry and geology.
- Major engineering subjects: mechanical, chemical, and civil engineering, as well as computer science.
- R&D fields: nano-technology, advanced materials science, numerical simulation, molecular dynamics, etc.
- National oil companies (ADNOC, Saudi Aramco, KNOC (Kuwait), Petronas (Malaysia)
- International oil companies (ExxonMobil, BP, Shell, Chevron)
- Geothermal energy companies (USA, Australia, Iceland, Turkey, Japan)
- Investment banks
- Petro-chemical industries
- Environmental agencies
- Regional and private oil and gas companies all over the world
- Drilling engineer
