Petroleum Engineering Department
Head of the department speech.
Prf. Dr. Amer Ali Ghabra
The Department of Petroleum Engineering at the Al-Amarah University Collage is one of the emerging departments in Iraqi universities and colleges, as it began receiving students wishing to specialize in petroleum engineering in the academic year 2018-2019, but despite the newness of this department, its ambitions are great to be one of the distinguished petroleum departments, on the The level of Iraq first, and at the regional level second, in terms of graduating qualified petroleum engineers capable of effective competition in the labor market, in all disciplines concerned with studies and petroleum business (drilling, exploration, storage and production), and the department also aspires to play an important role in the implementation and dissemination of research and in holding workshops, seminars, scientific conferences and training courses, because of the great importance of these activities in promoting scientific cooperation between the various scientific institutions and companies operating in the oil sector.
The department is working to achieve its ambitions by selecting distinguished Iraqi and Arab academic cadres, and working to establish a laboratory structure that contains the best educational and research technologies and devices, as well as through its interest and work to cooperate with the departments. The institutions and oil companies operating in the country with the aim of linking the theoretical scientific study with the practical and field reality carried out by the institutions and companies.
Through all of the above, we hope that the Petroleum Department at the college of will play its national role in providing the region with specialized and distinguished scientific cadres.
With God Success
Vision, mission and goals
Achieving the department’s mission and objectives in building a petroleum engineer with a distinguished scientific and community personality requires motivating the student to be creative, distinguished, and interested in developing his scientific personality, developing his scientific and social communication skills, and developing his abilities to solve problems that he may encounter in his field of work.
represented mission of department aims to graduate qualified and distinguished petroleum engineers who are able to prove themselves in various fields of petroleum engineering.
The objectives of the Petroleum Engineering Department are as follows:
1- Preparing highly qualified and scientifically qualified petroleum engineers in the various oil specializations, allowing them to compete strongly in the labor market, and to participate actively in building and developing the country.
2- Continuous development of the capabilities of the faculty, through the establishment and participation in seminars, courses and scientific workshops, and by bringing distinguished scientific competencies to the department.
3- Working on solid scientific research, focusing in particular on applied ones that can be employed in the labor market.
4- Consolidating in the student the rules and values that reinforce the building of society and the development of his scientific personality.
5- Achieving the highest level of cooperation and interaction between the department and similar departments and institutions concerned with the oil industry.
Department in brief
The Department of Petroleum Engineering at the University College of Architecture started receiving students wishing to major in petroleum engineering in the academic year 2018-2019 and thus it is considered one of the young departments in Iraqi universities and colleges, but despite the modernity of this department, its ambitions are great to be one of the distinguished petroleum departments at the level of Iraq first, and at the regional level, secondly, in terms of graduating distinguished petroleum engineers who are able to effectively compete in the labor market in all disciplines concerned with the petroleum study (drilling, exploration, stockpiling, and production). The department also aspires to have an important role in implementing and the publication of scientific research, and in the establishment of workshops, seminars, scientific conferences and training courses, because of these activities of great importance in promoting scientific cooperation between the various scientific institutions and companies operating in the oil sector.
Petroleum engineering in its various fields is one of the most important disciplines at the global level, and the importance of this specialty is increasing in particular in the oil countries, because of its effective role in supporting the national economy in those countries, which in many of them constitutes the cornerstone in building that economy. Iraq is one of the most important countries that enjoys enormous oil wealth, and whose economy is mainly based on those wealth, hence the importance of establishing departments and colleges that are concerned with petroleum specializations, which are concerned with graduating petroleum engineers who are able to contribute to the exploration and production of these wealth and their optimal investment, which is This also contributes to creating distinguished job opportunities and reduces dependence on foreign hands.
The Department has been established at the College since the establishment of the college and began to receive its students in the academic year 2018-2019 with distinction and in a city rich in its oil resources, and set one of its most important goals to graduate qualified petroleum engineers and open the way for students of Iraq in general and Maysan and neighboring provinces in particular To study in this section instead of traveling to distant places or outside the country, which contributes to saving great financial burden on the student and providing large quantities of foreign exchange that would have been spent outside the country.
