OVERVIEW

Petroleum Engineering program features studies in physics, chemistry, mathematics, geology, economics, and other specialist petroleum engineering topics.     
Students will be prepared for the petroleum industry and its related fields such as drilling, exploitation, petroleum production, reservoir engineering, and transportation of oil, natural gas and petroleum economics, etc.

CAREER OPPORTUNITY

Petroleum Engineering graduates typically gain employment in petroleum companies in Vietnam and abroad. The programme also opens up the possibility of employment in other industries, including environment and ecology (groundwater contamination), chemical engineering (oil processing and phase equilibria), and mechanical and civil engineering (rock properties). 
Our graduates have found jobs with, among others:
  • Vietnam Oil and Gas Group (PVEP, PVD, PTSC, PIDC, VPI…)
  • International petroleum companies: BP, Unocal, Exxon Mobile 
Work Designation: 
  • Design Engineer
  • Environmental Adviser
  • Field Engineer
  • Graduate Engineer
  • Petroleum Engineer
  • Production Technologist
TRANSFER OPPORTUNITIES

Students have 2 options:
Option 1:
Students study at HCMUT – Bach Khoa (HCMUT) for 4 years and get the Bachelor of Engineering in Petroleum from HCMUT – Bach Khoa (HCMUT).

Option 2: 
After completing 02 years at HCMUT – Bach Khoa (HCMUT), students with financial and academic eligibility may transfer to the University of Adelaide (ADL), Australia the later 02 years to complete their study for Bachelor degree. The official bachelor degree is awarded by the University of Adelaide (ADL), Australia
The advantage of this option is that the student can save about 50% total fees (tuition fee and living expense) compared to studying for full 4 years in Australia to get a Bachelor Degree awarded.
