Programme Overview

Students who have matriculated in Fall 2015 or later are governed by this catalog, and those who have matriculated earlier have the option of being governed by the catalog of their year of matriculation, and should refer to the earlier catalog for program details.
Bachelor of Science

The petroleum engineer is concerned mainly with the exploration, drilling, reservoir and production operations. Economic and environmentally safe petroleum production and processing require the application of engineering principles in addition to a wide spectrum of knowledge including chemistry, geology, physics, and mathematics.

The petroleum engineering program at AUC graduates a petroleum engineer who,within a few years of graduation, meets societal needs in one or more of the following roles:

1. A professional team member to meet local and global petroleum industry demands.
2. A successful member in an academic or research organization or as an entrepreneur.

3. A distinguished member in the petroleum community through promotion or professional development with awareness of ethics and environmental issues.

To provide more depth above that provided by the fundamental petroleum engineering core courses, students are required to select 9 credit hours from among a list of more specialized elective courses.

Students will be admitted to the program either through the AUC admissions office (gate admissions), after satisfying the general admission requirements and grade requirements in mathematics and sciences as declared by the department, or as undeclared and transfer students based on their performance record after successful completion of the criteria courses. Students are advised to consult with the department to ensure that admission criteria have been successfully met.

A total of 162 credits must be successfully completed to be awarded a Bachelor of Science in Petroleum Engineering.
