This programme is specifically designed to provide students with:
This programme is accredited by the Board of Engineers Malaysia (BEM).
Programme Educational Objectives:
Graduates of APU Bachelor of Engineering in their respective programs are expected within five years of graduation to attain the following programme educational objectives:
Petroleum engineers travel to where petroleum reservoirs are known to exist. They define and develop the reservoirs, and produce oil and gas with maximum profitable recovery. Petroleum engineering allows one to specialize in several different oil & gas specialties, each with its own unique challenges and rewards. The careers and job activity areas are as a:
The students, upon completion of their study, should attain the following outcomes:
The Industry-Academia partnership at APU has been further enhanced with Petroleum Experts Limited, UK (PETEX) and Rock Flow Dynamics Ltd., USA (RFD) having provided industrial software for student learning and research purposes. APU students now have the hands-on practical experiences through petroleum engineering related software tools which also is being applied in their Field Development Project (FDP) and Final Year Project (FYP) works. APU is one of the first universities in Malaysia to provide students with a combination of Integrated Production Modelling (IPM) and Reservoir Engineering Simulation (tNav) modern industrial tools. These now are also a strong additions to the Computer Modelling Group (CMG) software which is used for reservoir modelling and enhanced oil recovery studies. The software applications are part of the infusion on technology on to the Petroleum Engineering programme at APU.
PETEX Software Suite (worth £1,731,031.66) includes:
Hardlock system 10 copies of:
B.Eng (Hons) in Petroleum Engineering is powered by:
The infusion of software application for petroleum engineering has been fully incorporated into the curriculum. This is in line with the industry’s move towards Digital Transformation and enhancing productivity in the field. Strong Industry-Academia partnerships at APU with organizations such as Petroleum Experts Limited, UK (PETEX) and Rock Flow Dynamics Ltd., USA (RFD) have allowed for the provision of industrial software for student learning and research purposes. APU students have the hands-on practical experiences through petroleum engineering related software tools which also are being applied in their Field Development Project (FDP) and Final Year Project (FYP) works. APU is one of the first universities in Malaysia to provide students with a combination of Integrated Production Modelling (IPM) and Reservoir Engineering Simulation (tNav) modern industrial tools. Further strengthening the curriculum is the application of the Computer Modelling Group (CMG) software which is used for reservoir modelling and enhanced oil recovery studies.
DEGREE LEVEL 1
Students will understand the basic principles of engineering in the areas of Petroleum Engineering, Petroleum Geology, Engineering Materials etc. Other modules aim to provide the basic academic skills required to meet the demands of employers, as well as thorough grounding in principles of IT and management. Important and relevant skills for managing activities and for their own independent learning are also introduced.
DEGREE LEVEL 2
Here, students start specialising in modules that develop the necessary underlying knowledge and skills in Petroleum Engineering with modules such as Rocks & Fluid Properties, Formation Evaluation & Well Logging etc. Other modules such as Introduction to Electrical System, Strength of Materials are provided for the better understanding of the Electronic & Mechanical engineering skills.
DEGREE LEVEL 3
Specialised knowledge and skills in the areas of Reservoir Simulation, Drilling Engineering, Reservoir Engineering, Well Design & Completion, Production Engineering, Enhanced Oil Recovery, Well Testing, Gas Engineering and Numerical Methods & Statistics are the critical focus of this level. There is further development of the ability to apply relevant engineering skills with strong critical thinking and analysis. Independent learning continues in all modules.
INTERNSHIP (16 weeks)
Students will undertake an Internship/Industrial Training for a minimum period of 16 weeks to prepare them for a smooth transition from the classroom to the working environment.
DEGREE LEVEL 4
The final year Engineering modules provide the necessary industry application and technological skills which become very useful for employment upon graduation. Students’ personal and professional development, technical capability and understanding of how to innovate, generate and manage the creation of new ideas will be enhanced via Engineering Projects.

Direct Entry to Level 1 of the Degree
Direct Entry to Level 1 of the Degree
Please note that under Ministry of Education regulations, only students who have achieved the minimum requirement in the English Language proficiency assessment as indicated above will be allowed to continue their studies in the main study programme. Students who do not have the required English Language achievement may apply for a student visa on conditional basis and are allowed to enrol in an English Language Certification programme at APU upon arrival in Malaysia and, subsequently, appear for the IELTS / TOEFL / PTE / MUET assessment.
Students who are unable to obtain the required level of English Competency during the maximum 12 months’ period, will not be allowed to pursue their studies in the main programme and will have to return to their home country.
Students from English speaking countries and those with qualifications taught in English (IGCSE, A-Levels, IB, American High School Diploma etc) are exempted from English requirements. Applications for exemption must be accompanied by supporting documents.
Note: The above entry requirements may differ for specific programmes based on the latest programme standards published by Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).
Candidates who wish to study Engineering Degree course must not be colour blind or physically handicapped which makes him/her unable to conduct experimental/practical work and affect the learning process leading to potential errors towards professional practice as well. This is in line with the requirements of engineering professional bodies where safe engineering practices is mandatory. All International Students need to go through EMGS Medical Screening, if the student is found to be colour blind; the Medical Screening maybe failed.
The qualification and entry requirements for the programmes will be determined based on the "Comparison List of Equivalency of International Qualifications with SPM (O-Levels equivalent) and STPM (A-Levels equivalent)" published by Malaysian Qualifications Agency (MQA).
