Establishment Academy

The Yemen Academy of Oil and Gas Engineering was established by Ministerial Decree No. (127) of 2017 issued by the Minister of Technical Education and Vocational Training, Mr. Mohsen Al-Naqeeb on 27/2/2017. The Academy comprises four distinct departments in the oil industry. It was planned to prepare for the establishment of the "Yemen Academy of Oil and Gas Engineering" and provide the necessary capabilities, including the most important laboratories and workshops that were provided with the latest equipment and for the first time in Yemen. The academy has four main departments: Petroleum Engineering, Mechanics, Electricity and Natural Gas Technology Engineering, which were established according to the requirements of the labor market in the oil industry in Yemen.These sections include a number of divisions with the aim of graduating specialized cadres, not generals. This academic work seeks to build confidence in the preparation of qualified and distinguished national cadres capable of competing at the local and regional level, and we are confident that the Yemeni man is able to create a bright future that mimics the ancient civilizations of Yemen, which has taken precedence in all aspects of life.
