The McDougall School of Petroleum Engineering offers a curriculum leading to the Bachelor of Science in Petroleum Engineering (B.S.P.E.) degree. The B.S. degree program in petroleum engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
The objective of the undergraduate program is to provide basic and applied knowledge in petroleum engineering, with equal emphasis on drilling and completion, production and reservoir areas using the fundamental building blocks of mathematics, physical and engineering sciences.
Program Educational Objectives:
- Our alumni become compentent petroleum engineering professionals.
- Our alumni are able to analyze and design engineering systems, understand the associated uncertainties, and evaluate the economic, environmental, and social impacts.
- Our alumni are able to synthesize inputs from various sources, apply multidisciplinary fundamentals, and articulate technical concepts.
The basic 132-credit-hour curriculum is sufficiently flexible to allow a student to pursue options in geosciences, chemical engineering, mechanical engineering, or graduate school with a few additional courses.
