Learn from the experts! The University of Regina's Petroleum Systems Engineering program is one of three undergraduate petroleum engineering degrees in Canada and one of the largest accredited petroleum engineering programs in North America.
You will learn to evaluate oil and gas reserves, design well drilling facilities, analyze reservoir performance for production optimization, perform advanced reservoir simulation and visualization, develop new techniques to enhance oil recovery and conduct modern reservoir management.
You will have access to the Petroleum Technology Research Centre (PTRC) labs to conduct research in many other areas of interest to the oil and gas industry in Canada.
Petroleum Treating Operations, Enhanced Oil Recovery Methods, Well Logging, and Formation Evaluation, Well Testing, Drilling Engineering, Petroleum Waste Management, Secondary Oil Recovery.

What is Petroleum Systems Engineering?
Petroleum Systems Engineers develop techniques to efficiently recover oil, gas, and other minerals while reducing environmental impacts using various pollution remediation and greenhouse gas reduction techniques.
The Petroleum Systems Engineering (PSE) undergraduate program teaches evaluation, design, and management of technologies used in evaluating reserves and in oil and gas production and treatment. Advanced computer utilization and automation are integrated into the program.
- Bachelor of Applied Science (B.A.Sc.) in Petroleum Systems Engineering.
- B.A.Sc. (Co-op) in Petroleum Systems Engineering.
- B.A.Sc. (Internship) in Petroleum Systems Engineering.
The PSE program is fully accredited by the Canadian Engineering Accreditation Board.
What PSE Students Do
All engineering students take a common initial core program consisting of the basic maths and sciences needed by all engineers, plus introductory design courses.
Our PSE students learn to evaluate oil and gas reserves; design well drilling, completion, workover, production, and surface facilities; analyze reservoir performance for production optimization; perform advanced reservoir simulation and visualization; develop new techniques to enhance oil recovery; and conduct modern reservoir management.
What sort of career could you have?
Petroleum Systems Engineers typically work in the following areas or hold the following job titles:
- Exploration engineer

Undergraduate PSE Labs
We have laboratories for measuring rock properties, reservoir fluid properties, drilling fluid properties, and interfacial properties. Students are able to conduct experiments for Enhanced Oil Recovery processes. Our computer labs feature software for reservoir simulation (CMG), design and communications (AccuMap and Peep), drilling engineering (Wellview), and well testing (Saphir).
