Petroleum Engineering



BSc Degree Requirements

The PE Undergraduate Program is designed to give students a robust education in the fundamentals of petroleum engineering science as well as the specific training to apply this knowledge in the oil and gas industries. The features of the program are the extensive laboratory work and the summer internship in industry, where students gain invaluable experience in the Middle East or elsewhere in the world. As a result of the merger of three institutions, currently, the department has the Legacy program (existing program) and the New program (for students entering in 2017-18 onwards) under Khalifa University of Science and Technology. 

The Legacy program requires 133 credits to graduate, distributed as follows: 53 credits in General Education Requirements; 74 credits in Major Requirements, and at least 6 credits in Major or pre-approved Technical Electives. 

The New program requires 138 credits to graduate, distributed as follows: 61 credits in General Education Requirements; 71 credits in Major Requirements, and at least 6 credits in Major or pre-approved Technical Electives.
