Welcome to the web site of Petrochemical Engineering Technology (PET) Division at Abu Dhabi Polytechnic. We are pleased that you have taken an interest in our division and in the academic programs we offer. This is a wonderful time to be a petrochemical engineer, as our profession is prepared to solve the most pressing problems facing the world, namely in the areas of energy and environment.
Oil and gas industries are considered the backbone of the global energy industry and the UAE is ranked amongst the world’s major suppliers. Therefore, AD Poly is developing a state-of-the-art program in Petrochemical Engineering Technology in cooperation with the, well-known Emirati strategic industrial partner, Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) along with the International Oil and Gas Training Academies. The launch of this program comes as a result of the Abu Dhabi Economic Visionary Plan 2030. AD Poly aims to establish a cutting-edge Petrochemical Engineering Program to qualify National graduates and prepare them for their technical careers with major emphasis on the strength of the know-how and hands-on training skills.
The Petrochemical Engineering program will not only integrate the theoretical knowledge and on-campus practical training but it will also strengthen the students’ practical skills by implementing On-Job-Training (OJT) provided by the industrial partner ADNOC. This program will guarantee the graduates a prestigious job towards gaining an accredited Advanced Diploma and/or Applied Bachelor Petrochemical Engineering Technology, in addition to securing international certification (License) in different disciplines including plant process operation, petroleum drilling, petrochemical technology, and health, safety and environment (HSE).
Petrochemical Engineering Technology division offers both Advanced Diploma degree and Applied Bachelor degree programs . Two specialized areas of study are available under the Petrochemical Engineering Technology major including Petroleum Engineering Technology, and Oil and Gas Process Engineering Technology. Complete descriptions of these degree programs, including the curricula, will be made available on the site. Our curricula reflect adherence to established national and international accreditation standards that are appropriate to each of the technology disciplines mentioned above.
As an applied discipline, Petrochemical Engineering Technology is committed to experiential learning and exploration. AD Poly building, houses all well-equipped, technical laboratories and vocational training facilities where students put into practice the principles learned in their classes. Learning by doing is fundamental to who we are, and students can expect to spend a significant portion of their time in a laboratory setting and vocational training facilities.
Once again, I want to thank you for your interest in Petrochemical Engineering Technology Division and in the academic programs we offer. I hope you will enjoy navigating our web site. Upon completing a review of the site, if you should find that you would like additional information about the division or the degree programs we offer, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
