Dean's Foreword

I am pleased to welcome you to the Petroleum Faculty, where we strive towards academic and research excellence. The Petroleum Faculty’s vision is to lead Asia in education, research and innovation for the sustainable development of energy resources. Our mission is to provide the necessary skills for undergraduate and graduate students to serve Vietnam in developing energy resources, natural resources, renewable energy, and petrochemicals while promoting cutting-edge research to solve challenging energy and environmental problems, such as carbon sequestration and other earth disposal processes, application of AI and big data in energy resources, and to foster the socially responsible development of the petroleum industry.

Established in 2011, Petroleum Faculty is the core faculty of the PetroVietnam University (PVU). Our faculty offers three undergraduate programs, namely Chemical Engineering, Geological Engineering, and Petroleum Engineering. Our programs focus on the practical aspects of engineering and fundamental science with unique curriculums developed by Texas International Education Consortium (TIEC-USA). We proud to be the only faculty in Vietnam with all three undergraduate programs accredited by ABET (The Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology) since 2022. Our programs are well aligned with the core businesses of PetroVietnam creating strong links between academic and industry. This helps us to bring hands on experience to our students and secure 100% job placement to our undergraduates. We also have strong research collaboration and student exchange programs with many institutions such as the University of Tulsa, Colorado School of Mines, New Mexico Tech, Chulalongkorn University, Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS. We have a very selective admission process and demand high requirements for students to maintain the quality of our programs. We also offer four graduate programs Chemical Engineering Geological Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, and Offshore Engineering. At our faculty, undergraduates and graduates have opportunities to work with cutting-edge facilities under the supervision of our outstanding faculty members to well-prepared students for their future careers.

The faculty provides students the opportunity to pursue their academic and professional development in an inspirational environment where faculties and students reap the benefits of problem solving, engineering design, and technology innovation. We strive to educate and foster an environment of excellence, creativity, and innovation, in which outstanding minds, faculties and students, work closely together to create fascinating and innovative solutions to the present problems of society.
