About the Department

Petroleum referred to as Black Gold, is a naturally occurring substance made up dominantly of a complex mixture of hydrocarbons and their compounds along with minor amounts of inorganic substances. Owing to its wide usage in almost all walks of life, the petroleum industry is flourishing all over the world. Realizing the cardinal needs of well trained human resource for this industry, the University took a new initiative to start a four year multidisciplinary, industry-oriented B. Tech program in Petroleum Engineering with effect from the academic year 2012-13. The curriculum structure covers the entire gamut of the petroleum industry – upstream, midstream and downstream. Industrial visit and exposure to field-based experiences are integral parts of this programme. Projects are planned on problem-oriented research.

With well-equipped laboratories and modern classroom facilities, the Department has well-qualified faculty - many with industry based experience. Each student has access to high-performance computational resources too. It has also the facilities for Doctoral research.

The Department plans to initiate M. Tech (Petroleum Engineering) programme with the following specializations:

  • Petroleum Reservoir Engineering
  • Petroleum Production Engineering
  • Natural Gas Engineering
  • Transportation and Pipe Line Engineering
