Vision of the College

To be a global leader in the integration of petroleum engineering, mining science & engineering and geosciences education and research relevant to the discovery and recovery of hydrocarbon and mineral resources, with minimum impact on the environment.



  • To ensure that undergraduate and graduate programs of the College keep pace with the inexorable increase in the basic sciences underlying our understanding of Petroleum Engineering, Mining Science & Engineering and Geosciences, and in the technological advances of exploration and production of oil, gas and minerals.
  • To prepare graduates of the College to contribute to humankind’s knowledge of discovery and recovery with 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, gas and mineral industries.


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