UTM and UTP are offering PE. If you are looking forward to study abroad, I will suggest you to go to US, Canada or Australia. There are a lot of universities in the US offering the course. Colorado School of Mines(CSM) is a good one. There are 3 in Canada, Uni of Alberta, Uni of Calgary and Regina University. There are a few in Japan if I'm not mistaken.

that link really helps.

hey, i'm taking this course this Feb, anyway the requirement are pretty simple, just make sure you have maths and physics and a little chemistry will help you. Anyway i took A-Level, minimum requirement for the University of Adelaide was CCC. I advised you to go to Canada if you wanna do this, coz Canada have a lot of opportunities, but Intake are in September each year in the top unis(University of Calgary or University of Alberta), and this course is highly competitive among the locals and international students there. Anyway if you wanna know more abt Canadian Education just go to Wisma MCA this weekend, there're having an Education Fair there, both unis are confirmed attending. Anyway this web helps alot > http://www.spe.org/spe-app/jsp/siteFunctio.../petSchools.jsp. Anyway all the best.

I heard from one of my cousin who is an ex-UTP graduate but he studied Mechanical Engineering and graduated but unfortunately he could not find a job in Singapore cause they don't recognise his university.

So sad,thought of going to UTP to study petroleum engineering

You sure?
I have seniors working in Singapore now.

UTP only started offering Petroleum Engineering 2 years ago, how good it is? I can't comment.
The first batch is now 2nd year 1st semester.

My advice is that start get a job locally to get some experience, it's your performances during those years in the job that will help you advance your career. If you're serious then go UTP and do it, doesn't matter where you got your degree so long you can secured employment after you graduate from then you build your contacts with in the industry and trust me Petroleum is truly a 'global language'. So don't be dishearted with this so go and get your degree build some experience and then venture out.

That will be sometime in the future, mind you our oil is the best quality in the world with an API of 45, the more API the better the quality quality it is, most middle eastern countries oils are in the range of 27 - 35 API. Anyway don't think abt Malaysia think abt other countries.

petronas is paying more if u compare it with others....
it is jz like other GLC.....
u get pay more.....bcoz it is "partially" a role like taking care of citizen to "cari makan"
bureaucracy, politics.....u don live easy inside....

the day malaysia runs out of oil well, Petronas wont die...as it already venture to other countries...but somehow...it still rely a lot to other technical partner on technology....such as Shell....
it earns more bcoz it owns all the well in malaysia....on behalf of G...

Hurr Mei Chen. The only one in our family to actually do well enough to get a scholarship unlike me cry.gif

Anyways to the TS : Her summary is that the UA's course is through and hard, but complete and extremely well recognized, plus the job opportunities are good. It has it's own department and that's a nice touch.

Curtin isn't bad either, they're very industrial centric so you pretty much can't go wrong with them either as they have their own dedicated petroleum engineering faculty too.

I assume UA's is university of adelaide, i do agree with you we have our own department, and support and everything is there, so yeah is kinda cool although 1st year you will be more into foundation instead of petroleum engineering here in aussie, 2nd year then probably 70% of your content will be petroleum stuff, by 3rd and 4th year you can specialize either in reservoir, production and also drilling. But the school has a lot of contacts or partnership with the big oil and gas company.Anyway if you wanna work in o&g don't worry can always do chemical/mechanical engineering with o&g specialize in it ( if your uni offered it), or even geologist are extremely in demand also.

you're welcome man, try UTP they have great oil and gas partners, i saw the website already, even Shell sponsored students do M.Sc there, so i guess it's ok. Anyway all the best.

guys if i do this course can i become rich? i want to be rich thats why lah. hahah

if you work hard you will la, but oil is related to political and economic issues, so if oil goes bust then you can say bye2 to your career. Just know the risk and make sure you are willing to take the risk. Anyway i wish you all the best. If still not sure then do a 'general engineering degree', then 2nd and 3rd year you decide either to specialize in o&g, i'm pretty much gung-ho straight off with the petroleum industry, so if you're not sure then do other engineering such as e&e, chemical or mechanical.
