Petroleum & Gas Engineering - FAQs

Entry requirements for this course are normally:

* Must have at least 5 O’level credits, including English, in no more than 2 sittings.

** For complete requirements, please check the 2019/2020 Jamb Brochure.

  • DIRECT ENTRY: Available
  • UTME SUBJECTS: Literature in English and any two Arts or Social Science subjects
  • O’LEVEL SUBJECTS: Literature in English and any three Arts or Social Science subjects

Students will be taught through lectures, seminars and tutorials. They will be required to prepare and make presentations, take-home tests and assignments. There will also be written and oral feedbacks from the Professors.

A Graduate of this Department can take up roles where he/she:

  • Determines the most efficient way to drill for and extract oil and natural gas at a particular well or field
  • Oversees drilling operations and resolves operating problems
  • Determines how to stimulate an underperforming well
  • Develops new drilling tools and techniques to find new ways to extract residual oil from older wells
  • Uses simulation software to evaluate and forecast a reservoir’s potential as well as give information that enhances management’s decision-making process.

Specific jobs titles related to this degree include Reservoir Engineer, Drilling Engineer, Production Engineer, Geoscientist, Geophysicist, and Petro physicist. P Petroleum & Gas Engineers can be found working in numerous areas of industry. The areas defined as the petroleum and gas industry by the Industry Strategy and Working Group are Refining, Petrochemicals, Energy & Power, and Oil & Gas.
