Petroleum engineers develop methods to increase oil and gas production from sub-surface reservoirs. They play an important role in bringing oil and gas to the surface, estimating its vale and extracting it.

In this major, you will learn how to evaluate, develop, produce and manage oil and gas reserves. You will examine issues involving fluid flow through reservoirs, basic geology, the role of engineering in oil and gas productions, chemical engineering, thermodynamics, hydrocarbon phase behaviour, drilling and well engineering.
