Notes:


*Some students will complete a modified series of courses; See Special Requirements .

**Block course electives are limited to courses that qualify as humanities or social sciences electives as defined by ABET accreditation criteria and the Tulsa curriculum requirements. These courses must demonstrate depth of study in at least one area rather than be simply a series of introductory courses.

***For the 2017-18 year, the PE 4863 course which qualifies for this option is Surface Facilities.

A student must earn a grade point average of 2.0 or higher in the major (all petroleum engineering courses) and 2.0 overall to be a candidate for a degree in petroleum engineering.

Foundation courses in petroleum engineering include PE 1001 , MATH 2014 , MATH 2024 , GEOL 1014 , CHEM 1013 , and PHYS 2053 . Refer to the table  for specific GPA requirements. 

In addition, a student majoring in petroleum engineering must satisfy the following requirements:  PE 1001  must be completed successfully in a single attempt; a student may earn no more than 4 grades of ‘F’ or ‘W’ in petroleum engineering courses.
