Admission Requirements:

Besides an undergraduate degree in PE, Bachelor degree holders in other engineering disciplines such as chemical, mechanical, civil, industrial, electrical, etc. are recommended to apply.
If you have a bachelor’s degree outside of the field of engineering, we recommend that you consider a 2nd bachelor's path in petroleum engineering. The background preparations necessary from the math, science and engineering academics of the undergraduate engineer are essential to success in the graduate program. The master's program curriculum assumes high competency in those areas and successful students attest to that premise. Our program admission is very competitive.
