Doesn't look like it based on a cursory google search. They still offer chemical engineering though. It's more typical for people going into that field to do chemE first and then specialise in petroleum engineering through a masters or similar. I think Aberdeen used to have a course in oil and gas engineering, which they may still offer which may be of interest if that is your goal.

It's worth bearing in mind doing your first degree in chemical engineering may serve you better in the long run as more and more investors and companies move away from fossil fuels and hydrocarbon exploration, as it gives you more flexibility in a long term career than overspecialising at first in an industry which is by all accounts on the way down and out.

Ok, thank you for the advice.
