Bachelor in Petroleum Engineering
Olomouc, Czech Republic
EUR 5,200 / per year
Earliest start date
The primary objectives of petroleum engineering are the safe and environmentally sound exploration, evaluation, development, and recovery of oil, gas, geothermal, and other fluids in the earth. Skills in this branch of engineering are needed to meet the world’s ever-increasing demand for hydrocarbon fuel, thermal energy, and waste and pollution management.
Nowadays, the petroleum industry is evolving into industry working with many energy sources. Besides developing technical competence in petroleum engineering, you will learn how your education can help you contribute to the development of alternative energy sources such as geothermal. Our aim is to prepare students for exciting and rewarding careers in the petroleum industry, and related energy and environmental sectors.
