Instead, last week AUIS announced a change, and opened a mechanical engineering major. Rumors around AUIS suggest that the petroleum engineering major is canceled.
This, as many students believe, came about when on December last year, Dr. Dlawar Qaradaxil, KRG Higher Education Minister, suggested to AUIS president to not open petroleum engineering department at AUIS.
This bothers many students because they came to AUIS to study petroleum engineering as they were promised.
Now the question is, when the petroleum department is not going to be opened at AUIS, what will happen to Afren's 30 million dollars? Or what will be the Afren Company’s response to this unpredicted change? As it's in contrast to what have been promised to Afren before getting the money.
