    Programme Description

    Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering deals with the exploration, production and transportation of petroleum, natural gas and geothermal energy. Technically speaking, the engineering of petroleum and natural gas is involved in every aspect of the exploitation of the energy stored naturally or subsequently underground. A petroleum and natural gas engineer working in the field should be well-informed about the surroundings, cultural environment and the political and legal concepts of the job's requirements as well as the field of engineering. The rapidly developing petroleum industry calls for professional engineers who are well-educated in issues such as drilling, well completion, well testing, production techniques, enhanced oil recovery methods, reservoir modeling, phase behavior and thermodynamics, multiphase flow, well logs and analysis, underground storage of natural gas and reservoir characterization. The professional work area of petroleum and natural gas engineers has a wide range from computer simulation of the fluid flow through porous medium to offshore drilling.

    METU Northern Cyprus Campus Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering Program

    METU Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering Department provides education to help students gain knowledge about the fundamentals of petroleum and natural gas engineering, find solutions for national, international, social and environmental issues related to the petroleum industry, other aspects of the engineering of underground fluid resources (drilling, production, reservoir engineering and geothermal energy). It is aimed that, in addition to technical ability, graduates adapt principles of lifetime learning, environmental responsibility and ethical awareness, and that they have sufficient knowledge about the health and safety of employees. Summer practices give students the opportunity to establish the link between theoretical knowledge and practical applications, as well as the recognition of work conditions.

    The main content of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering education can be summarized as follows:

    * Fundamental and natural sciences, engineering topics,
    * The physical and chemical properties of petroleum and natural gas,
    * The rock properties of petroleum and natural gas,
    * The drilling and production of petroleum and natural gas,
    * The economical and effective management of petroleum and natural gas reserves Career Opportunities

    Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering graduates will have acquired the necessary education to work in the domains of exploration, drilling, production, transportation, storage and management of petroleum, natural gas and geothermal energy. These graduates work in national and international petroleum, natural gas, geothermal energy and pipeline transportation companies.
