Course Description

The Petroleum Engineering degree programme at UCSI University is designed to equip students with a solid foundation and knowledge of oil and gas exploration, production and development.

The programme encompasses a well-balanced curriculum that focuses on both upstream and downstream industries. It covers a wide range of courses that include but are not limited to mathematics, basic sciences, computing, introductory engineering, geology and petrophysics, drilling engineering, reservoir engineering, production engineering, economic and project management, as well as humanities and social sciences. Special features of the programme include:

  • Commercial reservoir simulation software used for teaching and learning;
  • Reservoir engineering including elements in rocks and fluid properties, enhanced oil recovery and natural gas engineering;
  • Oil and gas production operations including well completion, well diagnosis and treatments;
  • Field trips;
  • Laboratories to study drilling, rocks and fluid properties;
  • Field development project; and
  • Final Year research and development project.


In this programme, students are also required to undergo industrial training under UCSI University’s Co-operative Placement (Co-op) Programme at the end of their 2nd and 3rd academic years. The Co-op programme aims to provide an avenue for students to gain exposure to professional practices in an actual working environment as well as develop the necessary soft skills.

Accreditation

All of UCSI University’s engineering degree programmes comply with the latest requirements for accreditation by the Malaysian Engineering Accreditation Council, which fulfils the international requirements drafted in the Washington Accord.
