We offer several levels of petroleum engineering degrees in the Harold Vance Department of Petroleum Engineering at Texas A&M University. The list below is linked to pages where you can find out more information about each of them.

For every degree, we offer a curriculum that prepares students for the petroleum industry and other fields where fluids flow through subsurface formations. These fields include drilling, production, reservoir engineering, and the transportation of oil, gas, and other subsurface resources.

Our undergraduate program includes training in sciences and petroleum engineering principles. For example, courses in geology help our students understand which geological conditions are suitable for oil and gas deposits. And petroleum engineering courses provide the principles needed to tackle problems and understand the solution methods used in the petroleum industry. We also insist our students have real-world industry or research experience before they graduate. That way, our graduates enter the industry ready to be productive. They also understand the need to continue learning and improving their skills throughout their careers.

Our graduate program offers degrees and coursework at both the Masters's and Doctoral levels. The program is recognized for excellence in teaching and research, both nationally and internationally, and currently includes students from many countries.

Both our undergraduate and graduate programs are ranked highly by U.S. News and World Report.
