Specializations of the College of Energy and Mining Engineering


The establishment of the Faculty of Energy and Mining Engineering back to the year 2006, based on the decision of the Secretary of the Popular Committee of the University of Sebha No. (7) on 10/12/2006, where the name began the Engineering Departments. because of it (the Department of Petroleum Engineering and the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering) subordinate administratively Sebha for Scientific Affairs and Academia of the Faculty of Engineering and Technical Sciences / University of Sabha.

The faculty has become independent under the Prime Ministerial Decree No. (7) of 2016 issued on 06/01/2016 named the Faculty of Energy and Mining Engineering and its headquarters in the city of Sebha as one of the Sabha University schools.

The south of Libya has a huge stock of natural resources such as oil and gas, mineral and non-metallic ores, and the abundance of solar radiation. Thus, it is a strong ground for scientific and economic vision in the establishment of this Faculty in order to graduate specialized scientific staff to contribute the building of the national economy.

Among the important factors that should be referred to in this aspect: –

1 – Severe shortage of specialists in the distribution and control techniques of electric power in the southern region.

2 – The boom in the southern region in oil exploration.

3- Increasing the investments from international companies in the exploration, drilling and production operations.


The faculty vision is based on excellence in providing educational and research services in all fields of energy engineering and mining, thus contributing to the vision of the University of Sabha, which seeks to improve and develop society and raise the national economy of the State.


It is the preparation of qualified and trained engineers capable of meeting the requirements and needs of the labor market at the local and regional level and conducting applied scientific researches that serve the areas of specialization and departments of the faculty. This message stems from the principles of corporate values ​​based on professionalism and responsibility.
