DescriptionSAIT has offered the Bachelor of Applied Technology Petroleum Engineering (BAPT) degree program since 1995. The program was primarily designed to upgrade the education of our technology diploma graduates. However, the program also accommodates students from a variety of backgrounds. Each student's personal development program is designed in consultation with an assigned advisor to ensure that the personal development program will suit the student's needs.

The program is offered through both day and evening classes to accommodate full-time and part-time students. It is also possible to combine some day courses with some evening courses or distance delivery courses in order to meet personal schedule requirements. All program participants are required to complete a minimum of 800 hours (27 credits) of coursework and a supervised work practicum of 800 hours (30 credits). Full-time day students normally require two years to complete the program, while part-time evening students generally take more than two years. Credit may be given for relevant work experience for students who work during the day and complete courses in the evening. Credit may also be given for previous relevant work experience, but only up to 50 per cent of the required 800 hours work experience.
