Accreditation

Application to Distance Education Accrediting Committee’s (DEAC) accreditation in progress process.

We offer BS graduate degree completely (100%) online, so you can study anywhere in the world. To qualify for admission, you must be high-school graduate in science. Our program has rigorous curricula consisting of basic sciences and engineering. Joint degrees with several universities worldwide are under consideration so that whether taking classes on a campus or through our online classes your diploma will all be the same.

No need to be a U.S. citizen; to apply for permanent residency; or to qualify for US student visa to enjoy the highest-level US education.

Starting semester is Spring 2017

In the first two years, we open your minds to the challenges of our times.

In the last two years we provide a solid background which will allow you to contribute to developing advanced solutions to these challenges.

Each course you take is measured in “credit hours.” Credit hours refer to the number of hours per week you are in the classroom during a 14-week semester. Most of our courses are 4 credit hours. For most courses, you will be in class approximately four hours per week.

To earn a bachelor’s degree you need to accumulate 120 credit hours, approximately 30 courses. In order to graduate in four years, students should take 15 credit hours per semester.

We charge: $300 per credit hour.

Fall semester: September, October, November, and two week of  December

Spring semester: February, March, April, and two week of  May

BS in Petroleum Geophysics

The BS in petroleum geophysics is considered the preparatory degree in the field of geophysics. Graduates will be prepared for careers in the petroleum energy and environmental industries and in governmental agencies or academia, and for advanced study at top-ranked graduate programs. The first two years of the BS program provide students with the basics of the earth sciences (100-level courses) and the allied fields of mathematics. The junior and senior years involve more-advanced study in the field of petroleum geophysics (200-level) and the opportunity to concentrate study in specific disciplines through one 300-level or one enhanced-level class.

The BS is the appropriate degree for students intending to pursue graduate study in geophysics. Students desiring employment in industry are encouraged to pursue an MS. Students planning a research or university teaching career should pursue a Ph.D. degree.  Particular selections of electives can be chosen to refine the degree.

BS in Petroleum Engineering

The first two years of the BS program in petroleum engineering are similar to the BS in geophysics, providing students with the fundamentals of the earth sciences, chemistry, mathematics and computer science. The curriculum in petroleum engineering prepares students for the petroleum industry and other fields which involve fluid flow through subsurface formations, and they are particularly useful in professions related to drilling, production, reservoir engineering and the transportation of oil, gas, and other subsurface resources. The goal of the petroleum engineering curriculum is to provide a modern engineering education with a proper balance between fundamentals and practice, and to produce graduate engineers who are capable of being productive contributors immediately and who are also prepared for lifelong learning. The curriculum includes a study of the design and analysis of well systems and procedures for drilling and completing wells; characterization and evaluation of subsurface geological formations and their resources; design and analysis of systems for producing, injecting, and handling fluids; application of reservoir engineering principles and practices for optimizing resource development and management; and risk analysis. There is a heavy emphasis on mathematics, computer applications, and multidisciplinary problem-solving.

The BS is the appropriate degree for students intending to pursue graduate study in petroleum engineering. Students planning a research or university teaching career should pursue a Ph.D. degree.  Particular electives also used in this degree.

BS in Renewable Energy

The renewable-energy degree integrates the study of engineering, technology, and science to prepare graduates to design, implement, and manage renewable energy systems and similar technologies. Students learn to evaluate renewable resources, complete site assessments, design systems, and model performance. The first two years of the BS in petroleum engineering are similar to those for the BS in geophysics, providing students with the fundamentals of earth sciences, chemistry, mathematics, and computer science.

Graduates can go on to be systems designers, systems technicians, field-operations technologists, technical managers, and sales technicians employed by renewable-energy manufacturers; energy project developers, manufacturing and technology companies, and energy consulting and management firms.
