Petroleum Engineering Degree
The University of North Dakota's College of Engineering and Mines offers the only Petroleum Engineering degree program in the state.
The degree offered is a Bachelors of Science (BS) in Petroleum Engineering. Students may pursue the degree by completing coursework at UND main campus and through the UND Distance Education Degree Program (DEDP). DEDP uses online technologies to provided the student with a similar experience to on campus degree seekers.
The BS in Petroleum Engineering (BS-PtrE) is complete with 131 credit hours of course work. The current model curriculum is found on the resource page.
For more information about the new Bachelors of Science degree in Petroleum Engineering offered in the College of Engineering and Mines, please contact the Department.
Program Outcomes reflect a foundation of knowledge and skills that, if satisfied, provide graduates of the PtrE program with the tools needed to achieve successfully the PEOs. Program Outcomes have been discussed by the program faculty on numerous occasions. These outcomes serve as a template for designing and improving the curriculum, providing an undergraduate program that meets all ABET criteria for petroleum engineer, and maintaining an educational focus that emphasizes competence and future professional success for our graduates. Program Outcomes a–k for the Petroleum Engineering undergraduate program corresponds directly to ABET Engineering Criteria 3 (a–k) and the ABET Program Criteria (Criteria 9). Success in meeting Program Outcomes is in large part determined by success in achieving the Performance Criteria.
