Polytechnics that Offer ND/HND Mineral & Petroleum Resources Engineering (MPRET) With their Entry Requirements

The National Diploma in Mineral and Petroleum Engineering Technology Programme is designed to reflect a FUNCTIONAL philosophy of education. 

While seeking to achieve academic excellence and promote the furtherance of knowledge, the Minerals Resources engineering programme also seeks to aid the acquisition of appropriate skills, abilities and competence, both mental and physical as equipment for the individual to live in and contribute to the development of his society…”

The programme is therefore committed to the production of qualified and competent technicians who will be able to face the challenges concomitant with the aspiration of the country to be technological developed and the Technicians to be self-reliant after graduation.

The programme aims at producing mineral and petroleum resources engineering technicians for the nation’s industries and public utilities and services. 

On completion of the Programme, the diplomate should be able to:

  • Participate in exploration, prospecting, structural evaluation and extractive activities.
  • Collate and present data in a meaningful way.
  • Operate and maintain simple equipment commonly used in minerals and petroleum industries.

MINIMUM ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

Candidates for admission into the programme should have a minimum of:

(i) Senior Secondary School Certificate (SSSC) with credit level passes in five subjects at most two sittings which must include English Language, mathematics, physics, chemistry, and one other subject from

What Is the Duty of a Petroleum Engineer and Where Do They Work? 

A petroleum engineer is involved in nearly all of the stages of oil and gas field evaluation, development and production. Their aim is to drill for hydrocarbons in the most efficient way, and to resolve any operating issues. Petroleum engineers can also be responsible for using new drilling tools and techniques and getting the most out of underperforming or older wells.
