BS in Petroleum Engineering

 

  • The Department's vision is to be recognized worldwide as a center of excellence in education and research in the area of petroleum engineering.
  • The Department's mission is to have high-quality programs in petroleum engineering that stresses innovation, integration, teamwork, high ethical standards, and awareness of industry needs, in addition to, advanced research capabilities.

Program educational objectives are broad statements that describe the career and professional accomplishments that the program prepares its graduates to achieve within a few years after graduation.

The present educational objectives of the BS in Petroleum Engineering program at KFUPM are to graduate engineers who, within a few years of graduation, will have

  1. ​established careers in petroleum engineering and related geosciences that enable them to compete in the global energy industry,
  2. engaged in professional and technical development through life-long learning, and
  3. served society by adhering to the principles of professional ethics, protecting the health and safety of individuals and the environment, and practice of social responsibility.

Student outcomes are narrower statements that describe what the students are expected to know and be able to do by the time of graduation. These relate to the skills, knowledge, and behaviors that the students acquire in their matriculation through the program. Upon completion of the BS in Petroleum Engineering program, the graduate would have attained the following:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
  5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
