The BEng. (Petroleum Engineering) as with all of Curtin’s qual­i­fi­ca­tions, is awarded un­der the Aus­tralian Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Frame­work and is thus, ac­cred­ited by the Aus­tralian gov­ern­ment and widely recog­nised in Aus­tralia.

Grad­u­ates from the course ful­fil the stage one com­pe­ten­cies re­quired by Engi­neers Aus­tralia (EAust) as the path­way to char­tered engi­neer sta­tus (CPEng).

The course cov­ers the­ory and ap­pli­ca­tion of the var­i­ous dis­ci­plines re­quired to eval­u­ate, de­velop and ex­ploit oil and gas re­serves.

All four years of the course can be com­pleted at Curtin Sarawak with­out hav­ing to trans­fer to the main cam­pus at any stage.

The first year pro­vides a back­ground of gen­eral engineering and in the sec­ond year, is­sues in­volv­ing fluid flow through reser­voirs are ex­am­ined.

Con­cepts in chem­i­cal engineering and ther­mo­dy­nam­ics will be cov­ered as well as fluid dy­nam­ics and the un­der­stand­ing of the oil and gas reser­voir.

Crude oil pro­cess­ing and trans­port, drilling and well engineering are stud­ied, along with the meth­ods used to bet­ter man­age the reser­voirs.

In the fi­nal year of study, eco­nom­ics, risk and project man­age­ment topics in­tro­duce stu­dents to global eco­nomic trends and ways of ex­tract­ing more oil and gas for the good of the com­mu­nity while as­sist­ing com­pany profit mar­gins.

To com­ple­ment the the­o­ret­i­cal and on-cam­pus prac­ti­cal learn­ing, stu­dents will un­der­take at least 12 weeks of in­dus­trial ex­pe­ri­ence and com­plete a Se­nior First Aid Cer­tifi­cate course to en­sure they are job-ready on grad­u­a­tion.

The cour­ses are recog­nised or ac­cred­ited by pro­fes­sional bod­ies across Asia and Europe.
