About The Petroleum Institute
The PI was launched in 2001 to provide academic programs leading to degrees in the engineering fields and applied sciences; foster the creation of knowledge that benefits the regional oil and gas industry; operate as a leading international educational and research center for the oil and gas industry; and provide continuing education opportunities to professionals in the petroleum industry at large. The PI is regionally known for its excellent academic programs in engineering and applied science as well as opportunities to conduct research. We enjoy a very committed and high-achieving student body and an exciting research agenda. Our Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) comprise forty percent of the total enrollment at the PI; and there are active professional societies in every discipline. The PI is financed and governed by Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and its international partners (British Petroleum, Shell, Total and Japan Oil Development Company). We collaborate with many world renowned universities. We award scholarships to all the undergraduate and graduate students. All of this allows PI to offer a rich educational experience that few institutions can match.
