About The Department
On the B.Sc. Petroleum Engineering degree students will study a number of core subjects during the first two years. These provides sound proportion forth final part of the degree. Students will be concentrate in the fundamentals of Petroleum Engineering context. Course tailored to Petroleum Engineering discipline are available in years 3 and 4, and they will have a broad-based study path through a wide range of subjects, also students will undertake an individual project that usually takes the form of a field or research exercise, and involves the production of a formal report.

The Objectives and Outcomes
The broad objectives of Petroleum Engineering programs at UoZ are graduates of the program to competent professionally and academically, fully trained in their profession and the success of this program to be recognized in the region. The availability and exploitation of oil and gas reduces underpin the world's economy and as the petroleum industry reaches maturity, new hydrocarbon resources are becoming increasingly difficult to find. In addition, the world demand, has resulted in rising on efficient recovery to maintain production and meet increasing demands. The department is committed to help students to acquire. The department is committed to help students to acquire:

  1.  An ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering.
  2. An ability to design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  3. An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, maneuverability, and sustainability.
  4. An ability to function on multidisciplinary teams.
  5. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  6. An understanding of professional and ethical responsibility.
  7. An ability to communicate effectively.
  8. The broad education necessary to understand the impact of engineering solutions in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context.
  9. A recognition of the need for, and an ability to engage in life-long learning.
  10. A knowledge of contemporary issues.
  11. An ability to use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering tools necessary for engineering practice.

    Program outcomes are narrower statements that describe what students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that students acquire in their matriculation through the program.
