Welcome. The Department of Petroleum Engineering was established in 1975. The mission of the Department of Petroleum Engineering is to provide undergraduate and postgraduate students with a world-class education that provides them with the skills necessary for employment opportunities in global oil and gas industry. We genuinely care about our students and their future.
Over the last few decades, our graduates have been serving the society in key positions and have made tremendous impact to the development of Malaysia.Our goal for undergraduate students is to give them a high quality petroleum engineering education that includes hands-on experience. Our program is fully accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Council (EAC), which means that it meets or exceeds the quality standards set by the EAC.We also have a strong graduate program in Petroleum Engineering. Our Master and Ph.D. students give numerous technical presentations in courses and on their research. All graduate students are also expected to publish their research works in relevant peer reviewed journals. Each of our faculty members is ready and willing to work in their research specialty with capable students on individual projects. Our faculty have two major areas of research, namely reservoir management and drilling and petroleum production engineering.
