Engineering Undergraduate Programs

Welcome To METU NCC Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering Program

Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering Program at the Middle East Technical University (METU) - Northern Cyprus Campus provides a modern education to help students gain strong background about the fundamentals of petroleum and natural gas engineering. Besides enhancement of their scientific and technical knowledge and engineering skills, students are urged to learn how to find solutions for national, international, social and environmental issues related to the petroleum industry. Scope of this education include all operational techniques; such as drilling, production, and reservoir management for putting subsurface petroleum and natural gas resources as well as geothermal energy resources to human utilization. It is aimed that, in addition to technical abilities, graduates adapt principles of lifetime learning, environmental responsibility and ethical awareness, and they have sufficient knowledge about the health and safety of employees. The mandatory summer-practice program provides students with the opportunity to combine theoretical knowledge with practical applications, while observing work conditions in the field and office.

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

  • Fundamental  natural sciences and earth sciences for engineers,
  • The physical and chemical properties and dynamics of petroleum reservoir fluids (oil, gas and water),
  • The petrophysical properties of reservoir rocks,
  • The drilling and production of petroleum and natural gas,
  • The economical and effective management of petroleum and natural gas reserves.

 

Mission

The mission of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering Program at METU Northern Cyprus Campus is to create knowledge and transfer knowledge to tomorrow's petroleum and natural gas engineers in the areas of drilling, production and reservoir engineering for the subsurface energy resources.

PROGRAM educatIonal OBJECTIVES

It is aimed that, within a few years after graduation, Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering Program graduates will:

  1. be successful practitioners of petroleum and natural gas engineering who can self-learn, develop, apply and advance technical knowledge for engineering problem solving and design purposes.
  2. demonstrate technical competence and necessary soft skills to advance in their careers and assume leadership roles.
  3. perform engineering duties with strong professionalism, ethical behavior, economic and social awareness. 
STUDENT OUTCOMES

Graduates of the Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering program will acquire:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
  5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies
