Petroleum Engineering is the study of oil and gas extraction from the earth, fuel processing methods and environmental and safety issues in Malaysia.
Have you ever wondered what is at the earth’s core, thousands of feet below the seabed where no one goes? Do you like digging sand on the beach? Ever wanted to play with those cool robots from Transformers? Now multiply that desire 50 times more and you’ll get to do that when you study Petroleum Engineering in Malaysia. You’ll be doing loads of that together with designing, evaluating and executing productive ways of extracting petroleum from the ground. Petroleum Engineers

As many Engineers today are approaching retirement, there will naturally be a growing demand for more Petroleum Engineers and opportunity for fast career advancement. The demand for new energy processes and resources continues to increase, hence, affecting the demand for Petroleum Engineers as well.
With so many degree options out there, here are some top reasons why you should study Petroleum Engineering:
As a Petroleum Engineering student, you will be taught how to apply engineering principles to develop solutions within the built environment. So you’ll naturally learn to be innovative and improve on solution.
Most people are not aware that there is such a thing as ‘Petroleum Engineering’ and how important it is, hence, those venturing in this field have a wide range of opportunities when applying for a job.
Unleash your adventurous side because this course allows you to travel to many countries, some well-known, others unheard of, whatever your future employer desires. Plus, it is adventurous also because you get a chance to drag oil out from under the ground.
“A century ago, petroleum - what we call oil - was just an obscure commodity; today it is almost as vital to human existence as water.”
- James Buchan

It is not necessary for you to do your postgraduate but becoming a professional engineer by registering at the Institution of Engineers Malaysia (IEM) will definitely help you advance in your career.
No, not the rock head that loves Rock N’ Roll music, but one who has an undoubted interest in the earth and the rocks that compose it. While many couldn’t care less about rocks, you have always found them fascinating, and wanted to go into a course that involved geology to observe how they change over time.
While most of kids your age don’t even know it exists, you use the calendar application on your phone religiously, to plan your entire day. You like to be in control of your life in an end-to-end manner. You have a plan, a big one, and you know exactly what you need to do to get there.
Petroleum engineering is no different when compared to other engineering courses, when it comes to the importance math plays in the respective fields. Numbers are like your reflexes, you don’t really notice how sharp they really are because it’s simply natural to you.
You live for riddles, and those quirky brain teasers someone posts every now and then on Facebook. Unlike most people, who would Google the answers to seem smarter than their peers, you don’t rest until you find the right answer through your own effort.
Below are a few of the top Petroleum Engineering firms in Malaysia.
