Hi Faizatul, 

Generally to be eligible for the Petroleum Engineering course you would need to get a C or above in SPM level English, BM, Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Mathematics and Additional Mathematics.


If you're interested, UTP, APU and Curtin University Malaysia all offer courses in Petroleum Engineering. If you're interested just fill in the bar on the right and our education counselor will get in touch with you :)

Hi Looi,

According to UPM's website, the Bachelor of Chemical Science combines the physical, analytical, organic and traditional organic fields. You'll also learn contemporary chemistry courses such as polymer chemistry, chemical kinetics, thermodynamic chemistry and computing chemistry. To enrich this experience, students are required to choose a course from the field of environmental chemistry, food chemistry or applied chemistry. Examples of elective courses offered are Industrial Chemistry, Catalysis, Food Bioprocess, Chemistry and Food Macro Components Analysis, Environmental Impact Assessment, and Marine Chemistry.

As for Bachelor of Petroleum Science, students will get to study a combination of basic chemistry (physical, analytical and organic) with emphasis on petroleum and petrochemical industries. It focuses on providing students with detailed theoretical knowledge, site visits or case study experience on topics such as the Chemical Technology Principle, Petroleum Chemistry, Petroleum Refining Processes, and Petrochemical and Oil Spill Controls. Elective selection courses offered are Polymer Engineering, Gas Engineering and Petroleum Engineering, Safety and Risk Assessment, and Toxic and Hazardous Poison Management.

Both courses are similar. The former is more towards studying the general field of Chemistry while the latter is focused towards the petroleum industry which is also chemical based. Here are your career opportunities for both courses:
- Chemist
- Science officer
- Laboratory Executive
- Academic Staff
- Marketing and Technical Officer
- Scouting Officer
- Training Officer
- Administrative and diplomatic officer
- Forensic Scientist
- Environmental Control Officer
- Education Services Officer
- Quality Control Officer

You can work in an oil and gas industry but you are not a chemical engineering. You can only be a chemical / petroleum engineering is by studying engineering.

Hope this helps
