Undergraduate Catalog in Geological Engineering

The purpose of Geological Engineering (GE) Program is to produce highly qualified geological engineers with expertise in Petroleum Geology - Geophysics.

Program Educational Objectives

It is expected that within a few years of graduation Geological Engineering graduates will:

  1. Be practical, employable and qualified geological engineers in professional careers as practicing petroleum geophysicists engaged in exploration and development activities associated with the production of oil and gas reserves;
  2. Continue their professional development and become professional managers for enterprises of Vietnam Oil and Gas Group, multinational companies, and/or become scientists for research institutes and universities;
  3. Keep their education up to date through self-instruction and other training to meet the challenges of the competitive, modern and dynamic workplace.

Student Outcomes

The student outcomes of our Geological Engineering Program are the same as those required by ABET for any engineering program to receive accreditation. The Petroleum Engineering graduates will have:

  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.
