Programme Details

Oil and Gas Engineering is a unique programme that combines petroleum, gas and exploration engineering to cater for the ever-demanding oil and gas industry. This programme prepares individuals to apply engineering principles to the design, development and operation of systems for locating, extracting, processing and refining crude petroleum and natural gas, including mining and drilling systems, processing and refining systems and facilities, storage facilities, transportation systems, and related environmental and safety systems.


The courses are conducted via lectures, tutorials and practical work laboratories where appropriate. Assessment for the courses includes tests, quizzes, assignments and examinations. This programme received its pioneer batch of students in July 2008.

Entry Requirements

In general, students with the following qualifications may apply:
1. STPM (Science) HPNG > 2.75
2. Matriculation (Science) HPNG > 2.75
3. Diploma in Chemical Engineering UiTM with HPNG > 2.50
4. Diploma in Chemical Engineering HPNG > 3.0 (from other institutions)

In addition, potential candidates must possess SPM with 5 credits including Mathematics, Chemistry, Physics and Additional Mathematics with at least pass in English and MUET Band 1.

Job Opportunities

Job opportunities are most plentiful in the oil and gas industry. The Oil and Gas engineer is involved in nearly all phases of the oil and gas production process, from finding the oil through its refinement and distribution. Skills obtained from this programme would enable graduates to carry out tasks such as examining geologic and engineering data to determine sources of crude oil and gas, examining the quality and quantity of the product, separation of crude oil into different elements, and so on.

Graduates will also be able to design and develop the physical plants and carrying out these tasks safely and efficiently. Graduates with an Oil and Gas Engineering degree will work for many multi-national oil and gas companies and they can be specialized as geologist, geophysicist, technologist, drilling engineer, well-log analyst, production engineer, reservoir engineer, facility engineer, chemical engineer and energy economist.
