Department of Petroleum Engineering

Petroleum engineers are involved in all facets of oil exploration and development, from identifying and characterizing the reservoir through drilling and completion to production. Petroleum engineers also find new ways to extract oil and gas from older wells. Petroleum engineers travel to where the reserves are. Petroleum engineering often provides the highest earning potential of the engineering disciplines. However, it is also subject to the fluctuations in the marketplace. New technology is continually emerging, creating an industry that is full of both challenges and opportunity.
