III. Curricula

Undergraduate curriculum

1. Module details have  been designed according to some following main academic orientations:

- Petrol chemical engineering undergraduate studies are regulated by the Ministry of Education and Training. Fundamental and specialized subjects are designed not only to meet the quality requirement of high-ranking American universities but also to fit well in the Vietnamese scenario and the continuity and modernity principles as well.

- Offer career-oriented training  programs which first serve the demands of PVN

- Guarantee continuity of PVU undergraduate programs with other national and international training programs

2. The number of credits is fixed as regulated in curriculum training issued by the Ministry of Education and Training. The length of undergraduate program is four years on average, with 20-30% of the duration being spent on laboratory practices and apprentices.

3. The language used in teaching and learning is both Vietnamese and English. Political social subjects, courses on soft skills, natural sciences, fundamental technology, physical training and military services are delivered in Vietnamese whereas fundamental and specialized courses are in English.

PVU determines to offer 16 credits of English subjects aiming to equip students with adequate language skills so that they are capable of listening to lectures in English and get IELTS band 5.5 or its equivalent prior to their graduation. All credits of English subjects are delivered within the first two years, together with fundamental subjects.

Four-year training programs are adapted from the counterpart in American universities. They combine professional training with research and practice production in PVN operating units. Such programs which are accredited by ABET  extending over 08 main terms and summer terms with the total of about 140 credits.

4. Continuing professional development courses

- PVU offers regular short-term continuing professional development courses, namely Induction to Petroleum Geology, Petroleum Drilling and Production, and Petroleum Refining.

- Specialized short-term courses are delivered as seminars including Petroleum Geology, Petroleum Drilling and Production, and Petroleum Refining.

- Petroleum Geology, Petroleum Drilling and Production, Petroleum Refining.

5. Types of Degrees/certificates.

Students who complete four-year undergraduate course are awarded university degrees as regulated by the Ministry of Education and Training.

Those attend continuing professional development courses are awarded certificates verified by PVU.
