Petroleum Production - Italy

As energy engineering is taking important role in our society, we need more petroleum engineers that are educated with a broad vision and diversified skills. It is crucial for students to see needs and trends globally to be ready to meet the demand worldwide. Europe is key player in energy industry. North Sea development has led the technology front of offshore activities, intelligent wells and well stimulation. While many US major, independent and service companies are operating in internationally today, and many European companies are major contributors to the industry, it is critical for the students to understand the culture and practice other countries have.

Petroleum Engineering is a Senior level course. At College Station campus, students take three hour lecture every week, and conduct two midterm exams and one design project. The main part of the course is planned to be taught oversea.
