The modern world provides everyone with choices.

Many choices, whether in brands that dictate our eating habits, to the choice of our financial provider – the multitude of options available in our everyday lives continues to demand our attention and consideration from many perspectives.

And these decisions impact the role and choice of educational establishments that shape and mold the career paths that we choose to follow. This is one of the most important decisions that any individual, fortunate enough to experience tertiary education, will be forced to make in their unfolding life pattern and its legacy can have many positive experiences.

That is why we take time and effort to ensure that CPG has the depth and breadth of experiences that will allow you to flourish as an individual both academically and socially. We want to be a partner for life and to provide you with the platform and the ambition to stay with us in different capacities throughout your life journey.

At CPG, we give you the latitude to challenge yourself as a scholar, student, leader, and researcher. Through our diverse and meticulous range of quality degree program choices, you are given the opportunity to excel in the fields of engineering, geosciences teaching, research, and industry partnerships with the goal of developing your potential at a leading KSA and International Oil & Gas education establishment. We benchmark ourselves against the best and we want your experience to be the best it can be given the choices that you have available.

Students at CPG are provided undergraduate programs with a range of educational opportunities by which they will achieve competence in major branches of Petroleum Engineering and Geosciences. A key parameter of the curriculum at CPG is the fact that the undergraduate educational experience is an integrated one, in that all students take courses in petroleum engineering and geosciences, regardless of their ultimate major.  Equipped in this way with the knowledge of physics, mathematics, geology, geophysics, petroleum engineering, computational techniques, statistical analysis, AI & data science, business & entrepreneurship, the CPG graduate can engage in creative design and construction, synthesis of systems, and in research and development. Thus, CPG graduates are well equipped to seek jobs in a range of professions, in either industry or academia. CPG continues to provide flexibility in different programs through a spectrum of electives and concentrations, which allows the graduate to exercise a limited choice in tailoring his program to fit his personal goals, whether for immediate employment or for graduate work.

All undergraduate programs of the College of Petroleum Engineering & Geosciences have received either national or international accreditation. The BS in Petroleum Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, while the BS in Geology and BS in Geophysics programs are accredited by the National Commission for Academic Accreditation and Assessment (NCAAA).
