OIL & GAS

Over the past couple of years, the oil and gas industry faces a series of dramatic changes. Recent developments (i.e. hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling) have led to spill over effects both in exploration and production, along with a significant price reductions.

As a result, oil and gas enterprises are  presented with a complex set of challenges, but also, unprecedented opportunities; and they need to upgrade the skills of their workforce in order to maintain competitive levels of production, adopt recent innovations and hence, upgrade the skills of their workforce. Based on this, the high quality training of engineers, geoscientists, technicians as well as specialists is a major priority.

To this end, AUA offers  Bachelor’s, and Master’s Degrees in all specializations related to oil and gas, including the following: Petroleum Geology, Petroleum Geosciences, as well as Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) Engineering in close cooperation with more than 30 energy companies, from Libya, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Oman as well as Italy, Spain, the US and the UK.

All the aforementioned programs follow the American modular academic credit system, allowing the continuation with credit transfer towards a Master’s degree.

Over the past couple of years, the oil and gas industry has experienced a series of dramatic changes.
The transformational developments in technology (i.e. hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling) have led to spillover effects both in exploration and production, along with a drastic fall in average prices. As a result, the energy world is presented with a complex set of challenges, but also, unprecedented opportunities.

In order to flourish in this changing landscape, oil and gas companies need to maintain competitive levels of production, embrace innovation and hence, upgrade the skills of their workforce.

Correspondingly, the training of engineers, geoscientists, technicians as well as specialists in health safety and environment, is an essential priority. At the same time, what is of utmost vitality is the so-called ‘Green Transformation’, and the inevitable transition to the ‘low carbon economy’, and the so-called 4th industrial revolution which presents an ever-greater challenge for the industry.

The American University of Athens is celebrating 40 years of pioneering operation, for Teaching, Training and Applied Research on Oil and Gas Concentrations.
Starting in 1980, as affiliate Institution of Boston University, AUA, has been focusing on topics, such as Petroleum Engineering, Petroleum Geology and Geophysics, Petroleum Drilling and Rock Mechanics, as well as, on Petroleum Upstream, Middle stream and Downstream areas, such as Chemical, Electrical and Electronic, Project and Occupational Health and Safety Engineering.

AUA is proud for more than 4.000 Graduates in Oil and Gas Concentrations, for self financed or sponsored students or Trainees, originating from more than 20 different countries, including Libya, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar, Oman, United States, Canada or Brazil.
Specifically, AUA offers specialized oil and gas training programs at the Certificate, Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctorate level with specializations including, but not limited to the following: Petroleum Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical and Electrical/Electronic Engineering, Petroleum Geology, Petroleum Geosciences, as well as Health, Safety and Environmental (HSE) Engineering.

Our success is demonstrated by our global collaboration with more than 30 energy companies, from Libya, Qatar, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Oman as well as Italy, Spain, the US and the UK.

We offer certificate, diploma, undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral programs.

The absolute advantage of our programs is the level of specialization and the rigor of our research; our competitive advantage is our cost, since tuition fees are half than most American and British universities.

Considering the above, AUA is committed to help International Oil & Gas Companies (IOCs) meet the needs for updating and optimizing the knowledge, skills and efficiency of their staff.

Additionally, we offer similar ISO related certifications for the rest of our short-term or long-term training programs (ranging from 4 to 52 weeks).
Study Topics Include the following: Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR), Horizontal Drilling, Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracking), Alkaline-Surfactant-Polymers (ASP), Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Gamma Ray Methods for Exploration Drilling (Real-Time Instrumentation), Advanced Geophysics Methods, Modeling in Oil Field.
