Petroleum Engineering

The petroleum engineering undergraduate program prepares students for exciting energy careers in the United States and abroad. Petroleum engineering focuses on the development, exploration, drilling, production and management of oil and natural gas resources and other minerals. Based on the solid fundamentals of math, physics and chemistry, the program includes courses in geology as well as fluid and solid mechanics. Students can choose to specialize in drilling, production or reservoir engineering to establish careers within companies, as consultants or as independent oil and gas producers. Undergraduates have an opportunity to work with state-of-the-art research and simulation equipment on the main campus and TU’s historic North Campus.
