PETROLEUM ENGINEERING

Our four-year Petroleum Engineering program features studies in physics, chemistry, mathematics, geology, economics and other specialist petroleum engineering topics.

Students will be prepared adequately for petroleum industry and its related fields as drilling, exploitation, petroleum production, reservoir engineering and transportation of oil, natural gas and petroleum economics, etc.

Soft skills such as teamwork, communication, identifying & solving problems through hands-on training are also offered to our students in a creative, professional, dynamic and competitive international environment.

Graduates can work in either Vietnamese or foreign petroleum companies, including:

  • The subsidiaries of Petrovietnam - Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (PVEP, PVD, PTSC, PIDC, VPI...)
  • The joint ventures and the joint operations (VSP, JVPC, Petronas, Cuu Long JOC, Hoang Long JOC, Universal JOC, Truong Son JOC ...)
  • Multinational petroleum corporations (BP, Unocal, Exxon Mobile ...), international petroleum technical service corporations (Schlumberger, BJ, Halliburton, GEOSERVICES, Baker Hughes, Weatherford, ...)
  • Universities, Institutes of Petroleum, drilling and groundwater extraction enterprises, Provincial Department of Science and Technology – Environment, Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, Provincial Department of Industry)

Students have 2 options:

Option 1:

Students study at HCMUT (BKU) for 4 years and get the Bachelor of Petroleum Engineering from HCMUT (BKU).

Option 2:

After completing 02 years at HCMUT (BKU), students with financial and academic eligibility may transfer to the University of Adelaide (ADL), Australia the later 02 year to complete their study for Bachelor degree. The official bachelor degree is awarded by the University of Adelaide (ADL), Australia

The advantage of this option is that the student can save about 50% total fee (tuition fee and living expense) compared to studying for full 4 years in Australia to get a Bachelor Degree awarded.

  • Study language: English
  • Training duration: 04 years at HCMUT (BKU)
  • Campus: HCMUT (BKU) campus. For more information about HCMUT (BKU) campus, please visit our campus
