Why the Petroleum Institute?

The PI is one of the leading petroleum engineering and science institutions in the Middle East and throughout the world. The merger with Masdar Institute of Science and Technology and Khalifa University will strengthen even further our position to provide students with the resources and expertise to launch successful careers.

Here are a few reasons why you should be part of the Petroleum Institute family:

  1. We have the best faculty and brightest students. Our professors hold advanced degrees from leading research universities across the world, and our students come from the best high schools within the country and the region. Each year, we have students who compete and win at the highest levels in national and international science, technology, and engineering competitions.
  2. We offer a unique learning experience. We provide our students with state-of-the-art facilities and the latest classroom technologies to enhance their learning. They also benefit greatly from the low teacher-student ratio, which rapidly fosters professional collaboration. Our students engage in many activities outside the classroom to develop their leadership, organization, and communication skills.
  3. We help open doors and opportunities. We give our students the opportunities to work with a vast alumni network, sponsors, and research partners. As a result, our students have developed award-winning and patented technologies, which add to the sustainable development of our society.
  4.  We provide an interdisciplinary approach to research and academics. Collaboration is key in everything we do at the Petroleum Institute. Our interdisciplinary approach ensures that chemical engineers work with electrical engineers, and petroleum engineers' work with mechanical engineers to exchange knowledge and insights - all to arrive at the best possible solutions.

The Petroleum Institute is the school of choice for students who are willing to meet today's engineering challenges, think creatively, and innovate. Our people are at the heart of everything we do, and the reason we are succeeding in changing the world.
