Energy is a key component in modern civilization. Since the drilling of the first commercial oil well in 1858, petroleum engineers and geoscientists engineers have supplied the world with the number one source of energy – crude oil and natural gas. Economic and environmentally safe production of petroleum resources requires the creative application of a wide spectrum of knowledge, including:

Basic sciences: mathematics, physics, chemistry and geology. Major engineering subjects: mechanical, chemical, and civil engineering, as well as computer science. R&D fields: nano-technology, advanced materials science, numerical simulation, molecular dynamics, etc.

As a petroleum engineer, you will enjoy a lucratively high-salary* as you evaluate potential oil and gas reservoirs, design and manage drilling activities, enhance hydrocarbon production methods, and design surface pipeline systems and treatment facilities. Petroleum engineers increasingly use advanced computers, not only in the analysis of exploration data and simulation of subterranean reservoir dynamics, but also in automation of oilfield production and drilling operations. Petroleum companies own many of the world’s supercomputers.... [-]

BSc in Department of Energy Systems Engineering

Energy is one of the major problems of the world and of our country since the energy resources are limited and fossil resources which are used widely cause air pollution and so they are considered as the main factor of the global warming and the climate change. Energy problem in our country is much more important because we are dependent upon the foreign primary energy resources and this dependency is increasing continuously. For these reasons, our university opened an undergraduate program on energy engineering under the faculty of engineering in 2009.

The objective of the program is to educate the students in the areas of the appropriate use of our own energy resources, researchers for new energy resources and usage, improvement of new systems and processes, application, energy efficiency and all the other related fields.... [-]

BSc in Environment and Energy

The future of industrial society lies in the sustainable use of its resources.

6,9 billion people live on earth today, by 2050 there could be 10 billion. The thus resulting need of resources and the realization that they are lasting show us that they, too, are subject to elementary ecological principles. This being said, the necessity for governments, economy and private households to rethink becomes apparent. In support, the legislative body appears with new schemes such as the law for renewable energies.

In this highly dynamic field, there is a demand for experts with a broad knowledge base who comprehend complex scientific and legal facts of environment and energy, and at the same time are able to integrate the requirements of customers from economy and industry. The aim of instruction in the degree course „Environment and Energy“ is the practical procurement of the necessary knowledge for a well-founded judgment of the ecologically possible and what is ecologically and socially necessary....

BSc in Petroleum Engineering

A comprehensive range of education facilitates various fields of activities for graduates. They can work as engineers on oil rigs and also in development or application in a computer simulation.

To cover the future demand for petroleum and natural gas there are efforts worldwide to tap new reservoirs and to improve the utilization of already existing reservoirs, for example by improved reservoir management. The complexity of the problems that have to be solved requires that the professionals not only possess technical universality but also sound background knowledge in economics and information technology as well as management skills. The education for petroleum engineers is designed to meet this qualification profile. Petroleum industry acts globally and demands that employees can work in an international environment. This fact is taken into account, for example, English is the language of instruction in all petroleum engineering courses and credits can be transferred for a semester abroad at a partner university....
