Petroleum Institute


Petroleum Institute

The Petroleum Institute (PI) was established in 2000 by an Emiri decree under the direction of His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, ruler of Abu Dhabi and the president of the United Arab Emirates.

The PI admitted its first students in the fall of 2001. The institute is financed and governed by a consortium of five major oil companies: ADNOC, Royal Dutch Shell, BP, Total S.A., and Japan Oil Development Company, a wholly owned subsidiary of INPEX. The goal of the institute is to provide the local oil and gas industry with highly skilled engineers.

At present over 800 undergraduate male students and 100 female students are studying in one of the following five engineering disciplines: Mechanical Engineering, Petroleum Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, and Petroleum Geosciences Engineering.

The Petroleum Institute plans to offer graduate level programs in the fall of 2007.
