  2. The program is offered by the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science and will be administered by a Board of Studies appointed by the Dean of Engineering and Applied Science.

4.4.2 Qualifications for Admission
  1. Admission is limited and competitive.

  2. To be considered for admission, applicants shall normally hold a minimum second class Bachelor’s Degree in engineering preferably in mechanical, chemical/process, civil, environmental, mining/mineral, or petroleum engineering, or in a related discipline from a university of recognized standing.

  3. To be eligible for consideration for admission applicants will meet the English Proficiency Requirements described under General Regulations, English Proficiency Requirements.

4.4.3 Degree Requirements

1. The degree program requires the completion of 30 credit hours.

  1. 6 credit hours comprising a project course Engineering 910A/910B.

  2. 15 credit hours by completing Engineering 9110, 9113, 9114, 9118 and 9121.

  3. 9 credit hours (three courses) to be selected from Engineering 9002, 9015, 9111, 9112, 9116, 9117, 9119, 9120, 9420, 9609, 9624, 9625, 9901, 9902, 9989. Engineering 9117 is a recommended elective course for students without adequate background in petroleum engineering.

4.4.4 Evaluation

Students must obtain a grade of at least 65% in all program courses to receive credit for the course towards their program requirements. Any student who fails to receive 65% or more in a course must repeat the course in the case of core courses, or must either repeat or replace the course with another program course in the case of elective courses. Any student who receives a grade of less than 65% in two courses or in a repeated course will be required to withdraw from the program.
