Our commitment revolves around assisting students in securing internships and employment opportunities. We offer a range of programs designed to equip students with practical skills and real-world knowledge to thrive in their chosen careers.

Our Career Support Initiatives include:

  • Internship Opportunities: We facilitate internships by introducing students to available programs, delivering soft skills training, and organizing engagement sessions with industry professionals.
  • Advisor Assistance: Advisors are available to help students refine their resumes and cover letters upon request.
  • Company Day: Annually, we organize Company Day, featuring mock interviews and networking opportunities with industry representatives. This event serves as a platform for students to interact with potential employers, gain insights into job requirements, and receive feedback on their CVs. Many students have secured employment directly through this event, even before graduating.
  • Training Sessions: We conduct 6-7 workshops annually to enhance students' soft skills and provide practical insights from industry experts, aligning them with job market demands.
  • Our commitment to student success is evident in our statistics, showcasing that approximately 60-70% of our students find employment immediately after graduation, with a 100% employment rate within six months post-graduation.
  • We maintain stable relations with various employers, both domestic and international, with around 70 different companies currently employing PVU graduates. Additionally, through collaborations within and outside of PVN, 100% of PVU students participate in summer internships or final-term internships lasting between 4 to 6 weeks at various companies.

Our efforts extend beyond graduation, with a dedicated Facebook group (, connecting current and former students. This platform shares valuable job-related information and serves as a networking hub for alumni and potential employers. We actively track and analyze the career paths of our alumni through email, phone, and company records, ensuring continuous improvement in our curriculum based on alumni feedback.
A Petroleum Engineer is involved in nearly all stages of oil and gas field evaluation, development and production. Accordingly, graduate career opportunities include:

  • Reservoir Engineers: who work to optimize production of oil and gas via proper well placement, production levels and enhanced oil recovery techniques. They utilize computer simulations to assist in the identification of risks and to make forecasts on reservoir potential.
  • Production Engineers: who manage the interface between the reservoir and the well through such tasks as perforations, sand control, artificial lift, down hole flow control and down hole monitoring equipment. They also select surface equipment that separates the produced fluids (oil, natural gas and water).
  • Drilling Engineers: who manage the technical aspects of drilling both production and injection wells. They work in multidisciplinary teams alongside other engineers, scientists, drilling teams and contractors.
