For most of us, the journey spent studying in tertiary education will be amongst the happiest years of our lives.
New friendships will be built that will stand the test of time, life-changing experiences will be gathered and enhanced skills and career aspirations will be founded in the new learning environment that will become your new home for the next 5 years. The end goal is the special occasion of your Graduation, but this is not the end of your education experience – it is just the beginning!
The CPG Alumni is about connections. It strengthens the ties between you and the College. It provides a bond with those that you shared your education experiences with, and importantly it defines who you are as a former Graduate of The College of Petroleum Engineering and Geosciences. The Alumni is your life-association with a place that was instrumental in shaping who you are and what you have gone onto achieve. Our purpose in creating the Alumni organization is to make you proud of your past and importantly to keep you informed about what is happening at CPG. Your past will help us shape our future and you can play an important role in building our heritage, our tradition, and our reputation.
Our commitment is to help establish the Alumni framework and structure to allow Graduates to keep in regular contact with all of your friends, mentors, and lecturers and this will be delivered through a dedicated bespoke program of reunions, events, publications correspondences, meetings, and online networking sites.
International best-practice experience tells us that as an Alumni member, you will become part of both a Kingdom-wide and global community elite of successful CPG individuals who have made a mark within the chosen fields of their respective oil industry professions. Your CPG degree has the ability to both open doors and allows the opportunity to progress your career within the opportunistic world of the oil industry. But of equal significance is the possibility of maintaining the close friendships that you made whilst at CPG –as well as forging new and lasting relationships.
As the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is on a journey with “The Saudi Vision 2030 initiative”, the educational journey that you are about to embark upon or are about to compete in your own journey of exploration.

Wherever life takes you… You will never be far away from CPG. Think Alumni!
