Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology

The Department of Petroleum and Mineral Resources Engineering (PMRE) is the first university level program in Bangladesh to address the growing needs and challenges in the petroleum and minerals sector of the country. It was originally established in 1992, and the academic programmes began in 1995. Being the first and only department of its kind in Bangladesh, the DPMRE enjoys the mandate to lead and set trends in developing trained expertise for these vitally important sectors for the country. The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) played a key role in establishing the PMRE at the BUET.

Petroleum engineering has been the department’s priority to support the growing natural gas industry. The department is equipped to offer specialized programmes for minerals and mining engineering in case of future needs. The capabilities of the PMRE are comparable to those of any other leading petroleum engineering department in the world. The program is continuously being enriched through various linkage programmes with reputed universities and institutes. University of Alberta, University of Houston, University of Texas, The Norwegian University of Science & Technology (NTNU), The United States Agency for International Development (USAID), The Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA), The Center for Energy Economics (CEE) at the University of Texas at Austin are among the past and present linkage partners.
