College of Petroleum Engineering

Developed from its predecessor—Oil-Field Development Department (founded in July 1958), the College of Petroleum Engineering is now one of the major colleges of XSYU. In 1995, it integrated the majors of drilling engineering, oil production engineering and reservoir engineering into the present major of petroleum engineering. In 1999, a new major of oil & gas storage and transportation engineering, and in 2010 , another major of offshore oil & gas engineering were added to its existing majors.

The college now claims 2 provincial key disciplines (oil & gas well engineering and oil & gas field development engineering), 1 joint-training Doctoral program (oil & gas field development engineering), and 5 Master’s programs (oil & gas field development engineering, oil & gas well engineering, oil & gas storage and transportation engineering, Unconventional oil & gas engineering and offshore oil & gas engineering).

Students and college staff members have access to numerous facilities on campus, such as the jointly-built National Engineering Laboratory, the Engineering Research Center of Ministry of Education, the Provincial Key Labs and so on.

With expanding cooperation and exchanges with numerous colleges and universities in countries like the United States, the UK and Russia, the College welcomes more cooperation in all workable forms.
