The bachelor degree program «Oil and gas engineering» is the direction of obtain basic higher education at the engineering faculty of university of higher education.

This course will teach you about the processes, threats and opportunities that underpin the successful oil and gas production in the international energy sector in the 21st century. The hydrocarbon industry is faced with challenges of meeting increasing environmental standards in terms of efficiency, safety and utility. Professionals in oil and gas industry are required to implement modern standard and innovative technologies of oil and gas exploration and production. This course is tailored to the requirements of an integrated upstream oil and gas industry.

By learning alongside colleagues from a range of technical, non-technical and commercial backgrounds you will develop a truly multidisciplinary view to oil and gas engineering. This course comprises core sections of mandatory disciplines, options as well as some general subjects included in national education standard.
