Department of Petroleum & Gas Engineering

 

Introduction

Like all the other engineering disciplines, Petroleum and Gas Engineering Undergraduate Education can only provide the students with the fundamental knowledge, selected from a wide range of subjects, all of which are highly important in Petroleum and Gas Engineering practice. This Graduate program is very useful not only for the specialization necessary to handle specific problems that are encountered in industry, but also for providing the skills that are required to follow the technological innovations in the field of Petroleum and Gas Engineering.
In the light of these necessities, the objectives of the graduate program in Petroleum and Gas Engineering can be summarized as providing the specialization in the fields of Drilling, Production and Reservoir Engineering, Enhanced Oil Recovery, Natural Gas Engineering and Geothermal Energy, and developing the skills of analysis and synthesis necessary for initiating and conducting research and development activities.

 

Implementation of Outcome Based Education (OBE) System

HEC, PEC and numerous educational institutions of Pakistan are currently moving towards OBE in view of its relative points of interest over the traditional education framework. OBE emphasizes the accomplishment of the student outcomes and in this way enhances the quality of education and will carry it at standard with global standards. Outcome based educational technique has been implemented in educational frameworks around the globe, from essential to advanced education levels. Accreditation bodies like ‘Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET)’ and Washington Accord both acknowledge OBE as the main teaching approach. As most Pakistani engineering programs are planning to get the OBE accreditation from Washington Accord, it is the need of the day to build up an exhaustive comprehension of this new standard in Pakistan and be on the forefronts of this change procedure.
