Petroleum Engineering - Drilling


Petroleum Engineering - Production


Instrumentation & Automation in Oil Industries


Electrical Engineering - Control


Mechanical Engineering




Department of Petroleum Engineering

  Petroleum engineering is the practical application of the basic and physical sciences of mathematics, geology, physics, and chemistry and all of the engineering sciences to the discovery, development, production, and transportation of petroleum. Petroleum is the most widely used form of mobile energy and a major raw material from which a wide variety of products are manufactured.

The petroleum department supervises the following degree programs and certificates:

·                     Bachelor of Science in Petroleum Engineering

·                     Master of Science in Petroleum Engineering

·                     Doctor of Philosophy in Petroleum Engineering


Department of Gas Engineering

  The department of gas engineering was established in 2001 as a subsidiary of Ahwaz Faculty of Petroleum. The mission of this department is to assist the National Iranian Gas Company (NIGC) by providing a high-quality educated undergraduate and graduate students expert in natural gas related professions.  It offers an undergraduate Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in Chemical Engineering, a Master of Science (MSc) degree in Gas Processing and Transmission and a PhD degree in Chemical Engineering. The MSc and PhD degrees offered  in this department contain advanced theoretical courses in transport phenomena, advanced thermodynamics, natural gas processing and transmission, reactor design and separation processes. All the students have to do research on a topic as their thesis under the supervision of one or more faculty members in the department. Their research topics are usually chosen from current natural gas industry problems or their future demands.


In this department, both fundamental and applied researches are done over a broad range of subjects related to natural gas industries. The main research areas are:

1-      Natural Gas Process Design and Technology

2-      Heat Transfer Phenomena in Gas Industries

3-      Gas Hydrates

4-      Natural Gas Conversion

5-      Gas Separation via Membrane Module

6-      Gas Separation via Adsorption Process

7-      Transport Phenomena and Computational Fluid Dynamics

The research environment in the department is extremely pleasant and many activities are done as team work. The research activities of the department are currently carried out in three well equipped laboratories of Research Center of Ahwaz Faculty of Petroleum.


Department of Instrumentation and Automation

  The Department of Instrumentation and Automation (DIA) was founded in 2001 and is part of the Petroleum University of Technology (PUT). The aim of DIA is to assist the National Iranian Oil Company (NIOC) through the pursuit of education, and research at the utmost international levels of distinction. It offers an undergraduate Bachelor of Science (BSc) degree in control engineering and a Master of Science (MSc) degree in Instrumentation and Automation Engineering (IAE). The lectures are in English and the students must attend intensive English language courses prior to commencing their educational and research programs in the institute.


Teaching in the undergraduate BSc level is mainly lecture-based, with the students also performing coursework and laboratory exercises, and attending industrial summer training. The department’s laboratories focus on electrical measurements, digital electronics and control systems.


The IAE MSc students are required to research, design, construct, test and maintain instruments utilized in the Iranian oil industry.  The field also deals with the development of novel computer-based control algorithms, process fault diagnosis and process optimization. The graduates frequently work as part of a team and are needed to know several aspects of the petroleum and chemical industrial environments.    The associated curriculum is multidisciplinary and includes educational capabilities in oil production and chemical processing. These offered programs will enable the students for immediate employment upon graduation


Department of Mechanical Engineering

  Mechanical Engineering is universally considered as the cornerstone of almost all fields of engineering science. Our academic program can be divided basically into undergraduate and graduate/post-graduate education. We have always tried to keep a well-defined and logical balance between our endeavors towards both undergraduate and graduate programs. In undergraduate level, the program focuses on educating and training qualified engineers to commence their profession in industrial sector and service/commercial sector with high management and leadership skills.  The undergraduate degree program prepares students for professional practice in an era of rapidly advancing technology. It combines a strong base in the engineering sciences (mechanics, materials, fluid and thermal sciences, systems, and control) with project-based laboratory and design experiences.


The graduate program leads to M.S. degrees in basic disciplines of mechanical engineering and various multi-disciplinary fields. We have tried to maintain a dynamic and adaptive policy in our graduate program in order to keep up with domestic industry’s research and development needs and rapid global/international technological progress.

Our faculty members and research staffs are developing cutting edge projects that include, onshore and offshore engineering, drilling engineering, energy engineering, simulation and modeling, from both thermo-fluid and solid mechanics aspects.
