Petroleum Engineering

                                                                         

With the prospect of Lebanon becoming an oil and gas producing nation the need to train local graduates in the art of exploration and exploitation of gas and oil offshore becomes more and more important.

CITYU unique approach capitalizes on its experience in the maritime education to train young Engineers to become Petroleum Engineers.

We provide our students with quality education and training in the field of petroleum engineering through effective teaching, research.

Graduates will be able to join large multinational and work either in Lebanon or outside.

Curriculum for the (B.Sc.)

Total credit hours for a Bachelor Degree in Petroleum Engineering are 105 credit hours.
