Lucrative career in the field of oil and gas
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.
