Petroleum and Energy Engineering department offers a B.Sc. in Petroleum Engineering and a concentration in Energy Resources. The Department provides an extremely challenging and exciting career involving the discovery and exploration of the earth’s energy resources through knowledge of basic sciences, geosciences and petro-sciences. The discovery and production of the primary energy resources, namely fossil fuel and natural gas, will be the focus of this program; related topics include recent advances in exploration, drilling, production, reservoir development, and management. Although the main focus is Petroleum Engineering and Gas Technology, alternative energy resources such as solar, wind, fuel cell, and nuclear technologies will be adequately covered. Knowledge of related environmental issues and resource management along with excellent communication, language and IT skills will give graduates a competitive edge in this fast growing profession. Our primary goal is to produce highly qualified Engineers with the best possible preparation to compete in local, regional, and global energy related job markets, or to continue their education towards higher degrees.
The curriculum has been approved by the Ministry of Higher Education, it is designed to meet the accreditation requirements for both the Supreme Council of Egyptian Universities, and the US Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET).
