The College of Petroleum Engineering offers Bachelor of Engineering degrees in Petroleum Engineering, Oil & Gas Storage and Transportation Engineering, and Offshore Oil & Gas Engineering, Master of Engineering degrees in Oil & Gas Field Development Engineering, Oil & Gas Well Engineering, Oil & Gas Storage and Transportation Engineering, Unconventional Oil & Gas development Engineering, and Offshore Oil & Gas Engineering , an joint PhD degree in Oil & Gas Field Development Engineering.

It usually takes four years to complete the bachelor of engineering degree, and the petroleum engineering curriculum is designed primarily for careers in the oil & gas industry. Basic courses in mathematics, physics, geology, chemistry and the engineering sciences must be taken before professional courses in drilling and production, reservoir engineering, reservoir simulation, petrophysics. The master of engineering degree takes approximately three years to complete. There is a minimum core requirement of credit hours in drilling, production, development geology, formation evaluation, reservoir engineering, and engineering mathematics. In addition to fulfilling the course work, the students must pass an oral research proposal examination and the final oral examination (thesis defense).
