There are two paths available to satisfy the requirements for the PhD degree in Petroleum Engineering. The OSU chapter of SPE exists to connect our members with potential employers and provide opportunities to showcase our petroleum skill sets. Prem Bikkina, associate professor in chemical engineering, has 16 years of research and teaching experience in petroleum and chemical engineering fields. Meet our Departmental Faculty.
Chemical and Petroleum Engineering
Chemical and Petroleum Engineering - PhD | Faculty of Graduate Studies | University of Calgary
To provide a high level of education and up-to-date knowledge which will enable graduates to handle and manage the latest technologies in their fields; To prepare graduates to assume leading roles in teaching, research and industry; To enhance research in the Sultanate of Oman and develop cooperative links with local, regional and international academic and industrial research institutes; and to equip the students with high-level skills of communication and management that will enable them to assume leading roles in public and private sectors. The faculty of the Department are highly motivated and come from renowned international academic and research institutions. Together with qualified technical staff, they conduct research along with consultancy services in the following areas: Enhanced oil-recovery, Rock mechanics, Mercury testing, Reservoir and Production Engineering, Reservoir Simulation, Water flooding, Wettability alternations in carbonates, Water flooding, Multi-objective optimization, etc. The PCE department laboratories house several kinds of experimental facilities. The graduates of department are employed in the public sector and reputable local and international companies. Petroleum Engineering.
The exam is given twice a year, January and May, and must be completed successfully. Steps to Fulfill a Doctoral Program. After receiving admission to graduate studies and enrolling, the student will consult with the head of his or her major or administrative department or chair of the intercollegiate faculty concerning appointment of the chair of the advisory committee. The chair, in consultation with the student, will select the remainder of the advisory committee.
Petroleum engineering is not a narrowly-focused engineering discipline. In addition to having a petroleum engineering and earth science background, a petroleum engineer must have a good understanding of basic engineering, the natural sciences and mathematics. Skills in this branch of engineering are needed to meet the ever-increasing demand for energy. Our mission is to educate engineers for the worldwide petroleum industry at the undergraduate and graduate levels, perform research that enhances the state-of-the-art in petroleum technology, and to serve the industry and public good through professional societies and public service.
