Established in 2016, the mission of the Department of Petroleum Engineering is to provide students with the education they need to become highly qualified engineers in the field of Petroleum Engineering. The four-year undergraduate program offers a flexible course, combining theory-based classes and practical training classes. Students can choose from a variety of electives according to their interests and are provided with access to multiple laboratories—including the reservoir simulation, drilling engineering, reservoir engineering, and production engineering laboratories—fully equipped with the latest machinery and software.
Additionally, students have the unique opportunity to undergo summer internships in leading organisations in the field, such as the Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC), Oil India Limited (OIL), Reliance Petroleum, the Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Limited (HPCL), the Indian Oil Corporation Limited (IOCL), etc. With a faculty combining industry experts, researchers, and professors from Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) all over the country, and interactive guest sessions by eminent persons from industry, the Department of Petroleum Engineering ensures that its students have the hands-on and theoretical knowledge they require to become excellent workers who can meet the growing demand in the petroleum and energy sectors, and skilled researchers who can contribute to the advancement of the sector.
