Petroleum Engineering has become an area of interest for whole world considering current

energy needs of the industrialized society. The ultimate goal of a petroleum engineer is to pursue
all the techniques to achieve maximum sustainable recoveries from conventional and
unconventional reservoirs. Achievement of such objective requires extensive drilling, production
and reservoir strategies. Hence, Oil and Gas industry requires professional graduates which are
capable in dealing with all the field challenges related to drilling, production and reservoir.
Therefore, the need of an hour is to train young minds on practical, theoretical and research
horizons.

Petroleum and Gas Engineering department at DUET has made its task to provide industry with
highly intellectual minds which are equally sound in theory, practical and possess research skills
so that all the prevailing and upcoming challenges are solved in as per objectives. Petroleum and
Gas department at DUET has brought faculty in department to excellence with researchers and
engineers qualified from international and top class national institutes, having variant
specialization, research and industrial exposure. Such capability enables us to teach, train, and
test skills in various teaching styles. We promise not only to make individuals to become
technically sound but also aim at enhancing ethical and management skills to produce future
leaders.

The Vision of the Department is to be recognized as Centre of Excellence by producing


technically sound Petroleum Engineers to fuel the indigenous and global petroleum industry.

The mission of the department is To establish state of the art program in Petroleum
Engineering that emphasizes innovation, incorporation, collaboration, and high ethical
standards to meet industrial requirements by producing research oriented and professionally
skilled graduates, who not only strengthen the country professional manpower but also have
advanced research capabilities.

Departments course structure is based on course work, regular assignments, quizzes,


presentations, practical experiments, industrial exposure and regular field work. We also arrange
field internships with collaboration of various renowned oil and gas companies.
