ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Road to Excellence Begins Here

The petroleum industry is cost-sensitive and demands high levels of technical skills from its geosciences staff. As a result, the employers in this industry now regard the minimum entry requirement to be a higher degree. The Alexandria Petroleum Geology Program (APGP) is the first specialized program all over the Faculties of Sciences in Egypt, which started at 2007. The overall aim of APGP is to provide a full training in integrated petroleum geosciences. This is an ambitious program and aims to produce graduates of diverse backgrounds to satisfy the increasing demands of the oil and gas markets not only in Egypt, but also in the Arab World, Africa and the Far East.
