Introduction To Professional Master of Geoexploration & Petroleum Geoengineering (GEPG)
Vietnam like many other SE Asian countries is rich in mineral and energy resources, including oil & gas. The lack of home-based professionals in prospecting for mineral resources, petroleum exploration and production, nearshore reclamation, and risk management leaves much of this wealth to remain untapped. To meet the rising demands in HR due to the fast expanding Oil and Gas industry in the region the master program in Geo-Exploration and Petroleum Geoengineering (GEPG) of AIT is now offered beyond the Bangkok campus with the one-year professional master program being delivered in Ho Chi Minh city in cooperation with the AIT-Vietnam (AITVN) and other academic partners such as Heriot Watts, Chulalongkorn, Oklahoma, Clausthal and KIGAM.

The GEPG program has been set up at AIT since the early 2000s. It is an application-oriented program that has received the supports from many donors, including the governments and national organizations, big oil and gas companies. Many of GEPG alumni went further for PhD programs or have become key staffs for oil and gas companies operating in the region.

The first five batches of PME-GEPG have been successfully conducted since 2008. The PME-GEPG students come from well-known oil and gas companies in Vietnam such as PVEP, VPI, Cuu Long JOC, Lam Son JOC, Con Son JOC, Truong Son JOC, Chevron, Hoang Long Hoan Vu JOC, Pearl Oil, Thang Long JOC, Phu Quy POC, Schlumberger, TNK, Nippon oil and Salamander Energy.
