Top Doctors of Philosophy in Energy Studies in Asia 2019/2020

The PhD is a doctoral degree, specifically called a "doctor of philosophy" degree. This is misleading because PhD holders are not necessarily philosophers (unless they earned their degree in philosophy!). That said, PhD recipients are able to engage in thought experiments, reason about problems, and solve problems in sophisticated ways.

Energy studies teach about how power demands are met. This may be through conventional means, or alternative energy sources such as wind and solar energy. Some programs might explore the development of new sources.

Students who complete a part of their degree in Asia are growing in numbers. Currently, the second and the third biggest economies are in Asia. Without limitation, students have described their time in Asia as the best experience of their lives. Today, three of the four most populated countries of the world are in Asia: China, India, and Indonesia.

Oil and Gas Field Development
 Engineering (082002) Program Introduction

Oil and Gas Field Development Engineering is a discipline that aims to understand the fundamental properties of oil and gas reservoir and the law of oil and gas flow in porous media, build the effective displacement system to develop the oil and gas field properly and extract the oil and gas to the ground surface economically. Oil and Gas Field Development Engineering is the most significant component in the upstream of the petroleum industry.

This discipline was established in 1953 on the basis of the previous department of petroleum engineering in Tsinghua University, which is one of the earliest major disciplines of petroleum in China and is the only subject that enters the key construction discipline list in Project 211. It was authorized to award the master's degree in 1961and doctoral degree in 1986. In 1991, the post-doctoral mobile research station of oil and natural gas engineering was established. In 2001, it was awarded the national key disciplines. After the construction supported by the ninth five-year plan, the tenth five-year plan and Project 211, this discipline was significantly improved with the remarkable achievements. The construction plan of the innovative platform of superior discipline was launched in 2006. This program has become the base of the important theoretical innovation, scientific research and high-level personnel training in the oil & gas field development research areas.... [-]

Oil and Gas Well Engineering (082001) Program Introduction

Oil and gas wells are physical and informational conduits in the exploration and development of underground oil and gas resources. The major known as oil and gas well engineering is aimed at investigating the knowledge related to the construction (drilling and completion), measurement, usage and maintenance of wells, which demands a synthetic combination of technology and budget management. It is not only crucial throughout all the stages of the exploration and development process, but also provides significant insight for the exploitation of other subsurface resources such as methane gas or thermal energy.

The oil and gas well engineering program at China University of Petroleum was among the earliest established petroleum subjects in China. It started the graduate program in 1961 and granted doctoral education in 1986. The program was then evaluated at the key subject at the ministry level in 1993 and selected to be the key subject at the national level in 2001. It has been ranked as the top petroleum program in the country. After years of progress, the program has now formulated four primary fields of study and possesses the laboratory of oil and gas well engineering which provides an experimental platform for the simulation of downhole operation and the investigation on rock mechanics, fluid mechanics, drilling, and completion fluid chemistry. Our program also constitutes as one of the major subjects supporting the Key Laboratory of Petroleum Engineering of Ministry of Education and the State Key Laboratory of Petroleum... [-]
