Head of Department Welcome Message

Dr. Mortadha Al Saba

Head of Petroleum Engineering

Welcome to the page of the Petroleum Engineering department at the Australian College of Kuwait (ACK). The Petroleum Engineering Department is one of four departments in the School of Engineering. The department has gone through several re-structuring stages to reflect the needs of Kuwait in the area of natural resources and its related fields.

Throughout their Diploma and Bachelor study at ACK, students will gain a solid knowledge on drilling, exploration, reservoir and production engineering, gas processes engineering, oil and gas facilities design and operation, upgrading and refining operations, and economic analysis.

We are dedicated to offering high quality teaching and a very strong linkage with the industry so that our students acquire fundamental and specific knowledge and develop the necessary skills and attitudes for the entry and success in the professional practice of Petroleum Engineering. Our students have contact with the latest practices and research in Petroleum Engineering, such as advanced computational tools, access to scientific papers from international journals and modern and well-equipped facilities and they are always encouraged to participate in local and international extracurricular activities and competitions. With this, they are adequately prepared to face the contemporary demands of the profession and technological challenges of the future.

We are proud of our recent accomplishments and believe in a prosperous future, with even more developments. We hope you share our vision and enthusiasm! Feel free to browse our page and get in touch if you need any additional information.
