Diploma Program in Petroleum Engineering

Energy is a key component to people’s everyday lives. Petroleum engineers are able to address and solve important technology challenges that will lead to energy security and societal prosperity, so the position is in high demand. This challenging and rewarding field of engineering requires creative application of a wide spectrum of knowledge, including, but not limited to mathematics, physics, geology, and chemistry.
Worldwide energy demand is growing, and experts agree that oil and gas will continue to play an important role in the world’s energy supply. The decision making for complex projects falls to a great extent upon petroleum engineers, providing them with a high degree of responsibility. In addition, since hydrocarbon reserves are found in such diverse areas as Asia, South America, and Europe, petroleum engineers will have opportunities for exciting assignments all over the globe.

Who Should Attend?

Any learner who wants to develop skills in petroleum Engineering can join this course

Course benefits:

The aim of the course is to provide students with a broad overview of introduction to petroleum engineering in order that advanced courses in subsequent years can be understood within a broader petroleum engineering context. This course covers introductions to petroleum drilling, completions and production, reservoir mechanics, fundamentals of rock and fluid properties, composition and PVT properties of petroleum fluids; basic physical and chemical properties of petroleum reservoir fluids related to reservoir processes and production. It also provides an introduction to decision-making and the petroleum business environment


  1. Basic procedures and role of all fundamental systems used in petroleum drilling.
  2. Develop awareness of the multiple aspects of drilling operations and the challenge of analyzing and synthesizing the numerous technical issues encountered during drilling.
  3. Basic concepts of reservoir engineering, methods of oil production and technologies for oil recovery.
  4. Basic properties of reservoir rocks and fluids and methods for their calculation and measurement.
  5. Analyze the key issues in the design and optimization of petroleum production systems.
  6. Demonstrate an understanding of the difference between risk and uncertainty by explaining the conceptual difference between them, describing their impact on decisions in the oil & gas industry and illustrating by examples.
  7. Describe the main elements of any decision problem, identify the factors that make decisions “hard” and explain each of the 8-steps for evaluating “hard” decisions.
  8. Apply a critical-thinking and problem-solving approach towards the principles of petroleum engineering.
  9. Apply theoretical and practice skills in data analysis used for real petroleum engineering problems through case studies.
