Welcome message by the head of the Department of Petroleum Engineering

Welcome to PTE and KUST family! Thank you for your interest in our department. Our department has grown and progressed since its establishment and we are proud of having a wealth of academics that helped the PTE to be the leading department in the region. I invite you to explore the department website to learn more about our academic programs, our faculty and students.  

We launched a number of MoUs and collaborative agreements with international oil/gas companies to benefit our students and faculties in conducting researches that benefit the public and private sectors.

We are committed to providing an educational system for our students to be highly sought in the oil/gas industry. Our program was designed to ensure achieving the department objectives and missions and eventually be accredited by ABET.

If you have any comment or question you are always welcome to contact us at hiwa.sidiq@komar.edu.iq


Dr. Hiwa Sidiq,

Chairman of Department of Petroleum Engineering
