Petroleum Engineering

The use of solar energy has
not been opened up because the oil industry does not own the sun.

MIT-WPU School of Petroleum Engineering

Petroleum engineering students cover a broad education spectrum from exploration of hydrocarbons to refining and transportation of oil and gas. This requires understanding of knowledge of pure and applied sciences along with different engineering disciplines. Petroleum engineers search for oil and gas reservoirs beneath the earth’s surface. They develop the safest and most efficient methods of bringing those resources to the surface. The petroleum engineer is involved from discovering the hydrocarbons through refining and distributing it. Using skills that are often associated with the earth sciences, petroleum engineers examine a variety of geologic and engineering data to determine the most likely sources of hydrocarbons. They often need to travel extensively as the places are far located.
