PROGRAM SUMMARY

  • Bachelor of Engineering (Petroleum)
  • Duration: 4 years
  • No. of credits: 144 credits
  • Medium of instruction: English
  • Tuition fee: approx. 16,700 USD*
    (*for studying 4 years in Vietnam)

OVERVIEW

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

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

CAREER OPPORTUNITY

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)

TRANSFER OPPORTUNITIES

Students have 2 options:

Option 1:

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

Option 2:

After completing 02 years at BKU (HCMUT), 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.
