Overview

The Petroleum Engineering undergraduate program offered by the Faculty of Geology & Petroleum Engineering is designed to allow students to graduate after successfully completing 128 credit-hours in a standard four-year plan. Details are as follows:

Program Objectives

The Petroleum Engineering Program aims to produce graduates having a professional capacity, political and ethical qualities, good health, meeting the demand of labors with high technical level of the country. In particular, the four program objectives are as follows:

1. Providing students with basic knowledge on mathematics and science in order to study professional knowledge and to do further study;

2. Educating students with basic engineering knowledge and needed major knowledge in order to be able to solve problems related to analysis, evaluation, design, fabrication, operation, maintenance, troubleshooting, research and development of products in the fields of Petroleum Engineering;

3. Training students to improve their personal, professional, teamwork and communication skills in order to work in interdisciplinary and multicultural environments;

4. Providing students with good understanding of economics and politics, basic knowledge on social science and humanities suitable to the major in order to contribute effectively to the sustainable development of the community and the society.

Expected Learning Outcomes

(a) Being able to apply mathematics and science/technology knowledge to problems in the fields of Petroleum Engineering.

(b) Being able to do experiments, analyses and evaluations in the fields of Petroleum Engineering.

(c) Being able to design a system, a component or a process in the field of Petroleum Engineering in order to fulfill practical demands.

(d) Being able to do teamwork in order to realize common problems.

(e) Being able to identify, analyze and solve technical problems in the field of Petroleum Engineering.

(f) Understanding the career, having a sense of responsibility and professional ethics in the fields of Petroleum Engineering.

(g) Being able to communicate effectively by doing report and presentation in the country and having good English ability in order to work in an international environment.

(h)  Identifying the impact of technical solutions on economics, environment and society.

(i) Identifying the importance of self-study and the need for life-long learning.

(j)  Having knowledge of contemporary problems.

(k) Being able to apply related software in the fields of Petroleum Engineering

Brief outline of all Courses in the programme

The brief outline provides the aim and outline of 75 courses in the 128-credit program over 8 semesters within a duration of 4 years. It also includes the course title and number of credits. All brief outlines in the 2019 Petroleum Engineering Program are shown below: View detail

Admission criteria

The applicants can be considered based on six admission methods:

1. National Examination for High School Graduation,

2. VNU-HCM priority admission: VNU-HCM approved list of top High schools which students can apply their applications for admission,

3. MOET priority admission: Applicants got the Outstanding achievements, National awards, 

4. VNU-HCM examination,

5. Priority admission for those who have international certificates and/or foreigners,

6. National Examination for High School Graduation and interview for foreign study.

Note:

Based on the corresponding national high school examination, every year in July-August HCMUT publishes its minimum scores for applicants who want to apply to HCMUT. The minimum scores are considered as the first requirement. In principle, at the national high school examination, those who have gained the score higher than or equal to the published minimum score of related faculty or program can apply for HCMUT consideration. Depending on the quota of each faculty or program and depending on the quality of the applicants who have submitted, the benchmark would be later determined. The applicants who have gained the national high school examination score higher than or equal to the benchmark would be recruited.

Currently, for new student recruitment, Petroleum Engineering Program is firstly merged with geology engineering program. After two first semesters, students will be regrouped based on their professional expectations.

Graduation Requirements 

In order to graduate, students must meet the following requirements:

- Being recognized as HCMUT official students;

- Completing the program offered by HCMUT in general and by GEOPET in particular;

- Accumulating at least 128 credits within 6.5 years;

- Having an overall final GPA of 5 or above;

- Attaining a TOEIC certificate with a (Listening + Reading) score ≥730 and (Speaking + Writing) score ≥ 280 (or equivalently, an IELTS score ≥6.0 or TOEFL iBT score≥79);

- Joining social activities, the total time must be at least 15 days;

- Attaining the certificate of national Military Training and the certificate of Physical Education;

- Their study not being stopped compulsively by the University;

- Not committing major violations/offenses with the University or the law.
