Vision of the College

To be a global leader in the integration of petroleum engineering and geosciences education and research for undergraduate and graduate levels. This will be achieved through the delivery of both basic and applied research relevant to the discovery and recovery of hydrocarbon resources with minimum impact on the environment.



  • To ensure that undergraduate and graduate programs of the College keep pace with the inexorable increase both in the basic sciences underlying our understanding of Petroleum Engineering and Geosciences and in the technological sophistication of exploration and the production of oil and gas.
  • To prepare graduates of the College at all levels to contribute to humankind’s knowledge of discovery and recovery, to contribute to a technology-based company or government missions, and to educate and mentor those students who have the ability to solve the difficult technical, industrial, and civic problems of tomorrow.
  • To help secure the economic future of Saudi Arabia and the world by increasing the role of the world’s largest oil-producing country as a generator of new science, new technology, and tech-based start-up companies of direct relevance to the growth and development of the oil and gas industries.


The College of Petroleum Engineering and Geosciences (CPG) leverages the educational and research capacity of KFUPM, to contribute to industry-relevant research and to develop industry-ready graduate professional across Petroleum Engineering and Geosciences spectrum. Its distinguishing approach is driven by quality integrative research, high-level industry engagement and an extensive collaborative curriculum.
